I had an Amana ASZ16 and matching indoor unit system put in 14 months ago and have had nothing but problems with it since. Last December, the compressor locked up and I had to have the whole unit replaced (under warranty). Over the summer, it was not cooling my house sufficiently. This December, I now have issues with the reverse valve locking up. Bottom line is that I'm done with Amana and my installer is honoring my request and allowing me to swap it out for a Trane unit (which they do the majority of their business selling).
Anyways, I'm trying to figure out what my best option is to go with. My air handler is in a hallway closet, so I am restricted on my options there. My home is roughly 1500 sq. ft. and I live in FL - gets really humid in the summer and I sweat like a pig.
They said we could go with one of the two:
Trane XL20i 18 SEER
Trane XR15 15 SEER
Air handler is 4TEE3C04
Can you all shed some light on your recommendations? Thanks!
