I have a 16-yr-old Ruud 2-ton package heat pump that I need to replace, and my local contractor carries American Standard and Rheem. He recommends the Rheem for ease of service and it is about $200 less than the comparable American Standard unit. My upstairs unit is A/Std and was replaced about 3 yrs ago. I wanted to get the A/Std package unit to keep things consistent.
I am not accustomed to people recommending something that is a less expensive alternative.
Any comments on this?
