    New Member - Hello all - Heat Pump Recommendation

    Hello all. A little about myself - Im in the Army and am trying to get into my house before I have to deploy again. I am new to HVAC and hope I can get some good input from you all.

    I am wrapping up a remodel of my house and can almost move in but the Heat pump - split unit just went out. It is a 5 ton heat pump by lennox and I belive it was original to the house so it would be 30+ yrs old. Obviously I was expecting this to happen just hoped it wasn't when I'm pretty much out of $$ due to the renovation. I really would appreciate input on brand choice / quality and cost. I live right outside New Orleans, La and the house does not have gas.

    Again, any input is greatly appreciated.

    Welcome dtall

    Your question would be better posted in the Residential HVAC forum, you'll get far more responses there.

    Thanks

    That shouldn't be that difficult, if you can get a tech out to do a manual J and heat loss/gain on your house and get the equipment by the 1st you will get a rebate from the electric co. within 4 weeks and then up to $1500 the cost of the equipment on your tax return. You are in the South so the humidity is greater and needs to be accounted for when properly sizing the equipment. With no gas electric might be a little less expensive I'm not sure what the kw/hr. cost is down there. If possable try to get more that one opinion.

    Sorry to any moderator, I don't think I did. But that isn't pricing is it?

    I think mention of the tax credit is probably OK.
