I've never purchased a heat pump (or furnace) before, but my wife and I began pricing these systems a few weeks ago. We received several offers, but would like to go with a Trane. The salesman was courteous, but I can't say that I trust him 100 percent. I have a connection that may be able to get the system at cost for me (but would have to find someone to install it for me; I have an uncle who is certified). Could someone verify that these two units are compatible? He recommended:
Heat Pump: Trane XR15, 15 SEER, 2.5 Ton (Model Number: 4TWR5030)
Air Handler: Variable Speed 3.5 BTU, 19KW (Model Number: 4TEE3F40A)
Can someone confirm that these two units are compatible?
Together, are they eligible for the tax refund?
If I were going to do this with an outside person, what else would I need to buy (is their a coil that needs to be purchased or is that included?)
What's a coffin box? He included that on the quote, but I'm unsure if I would need to buy it.
I know some of these questions may seem awfully ignorant, but any help woudl be greatly appreciated.
