    Opinion on new system

    After calling almost every HVAC contractor in town, I finally found a good one. They actually did a real load calculation, measured air flow from the ducts, etc. The system I have in mind is a Bryant heat pump. FV4C air handler variable speed with tin plated coil. 226A heat pump 2 stage. t-6 thermostat with humidity control. Anyone with any experience with this system know if I'm making a good choice? The contractor is nate rated and factory certified.

    Sounds like you found a good contractor in your area. The equipment you selected will do a great job and you will like it. Did you look into the Evolution series from Bryant at all?

    what size outside condenser?

    what size heat strip? staged or not staged?

    what is your location?

    only bad feature is no demand defrost.

    IMO

    I would pay a little more and get demand defrost.

    AFAIK, contractors aren't "factory certified". Just because they're on the manufacturers web site doesn't mean nuthin, except that they're an approved dealer. The "semi-pros" that put in my stuff were listed on the manufacturers web site.
