I have been quoted a couple of prices on some systems for my house. I am replacing a 20 year old Heil 3 ton Heat pump. I am looking at getting a basic 13 seer system with a variable speed handler. I have narrowed it down to two service companies both of which have been around for 20+ years with good references. One is offering a tempstar the other is offering a Payne. I thought that both of these are under the "Carrier" umbrella. Is there any preference for one over the other? I heard that the Payne heat pumps are made in Mexico. is that true and/or it is the same quality as those made in the US?
Any comments and feedback would be appreciated.
