i had an olsen unit installed 5 years ago which just died. i've had a few quotes for replacing the unit and i'm just lost as to what is the best deal for me.
so far, i was offered an american standard seer 14 . i asked about higher efficiency units but according to our installer i'd need a new coil to be replaced and that would cost a lot more.
i don't mind getting a lower end unit to save money. we're in Toronto, Canada and in an old house. we only use the AC during heatwaves.
i was told by another installer that goodmen and keeprite are also good brands and warranties might be better... 10 yr vs 5 yr.
it next to impossible to find accurate info on the brands and everyone seems to have their own opinion. i just don't want to get ripped off like i did 5 years ago.
if anyone has an opinion of what brands they prefer i'd love to hear it.
also- is changing the coil that much more work?
