Time is coming soon for a new heat pump system. The system I have is a builders grade Janitrol; it's about 15 years old and beginning to show it's age.

My question is this:
I can get a 12 SEER Gibson heat pump and air handler w/ 15KW heat strips for darn near the same price I can get a Trane 10 SEER heat pump w/ air handler and heat strips.

These are the two makes I can get wholesale pricing on.

Which would you recommend? Why?

As some of you know, I do not do residential work, so I appreciate your comments. Thanks. Bob
