    Help with proposals..

    Background:
    Live in central PA.
    Home is 2 story approx. 1650 sq. ft.
    12 year old Trane Heat Pump and American Standard Air Handler. Was told that the coil in the air handler has a leak and is no longer available for replacement.

    Proposals:
    1st
    Trane XL15i heat pump with #4TEE3F39A1 Trane air handler.

    2nd
    Trane XL15i #TWX5024B1000A heat pump with #TEE3F31B1000A Trane air handler.

    3rd
    Amana #ASZ160241 heat pump with #AEPF313716 Amana air handler.

    Like the Trane over the Amana but typed it in to hopefully get some opinions. I have a Carrier tech. coming on Mon. to get his proposal. Main question is the differences in the Trane air handlers. Did see some information about the #4TEE3F39A1 being discontinued. Was not told the model # of the first XL15i.
    Any help/ideas/info would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you.

    Thank you.

    Any of those systems will work fine. The question you need to be asking is, will the installer work fine?

    The 4TEEF39 has an oversized evaporator so it probably achieves a higher SEER/HSPF, I'm too lazy to look it up exactly though.

    Nominal tonnage on the TEEF39 is 3 ton, TEEF31 is 2.5 ton.
