    I was just wondering what the typical timeline was from first contact to a complete installation... from my first calling a contractor to an estimate to them showing up on my doorstep with a complete split unit (gas/electric).

    Also, how common is financing out there?

    What's your opinion of Carrier and/or Kenmore?

    If you sign the proposal and put down a deposit, it can be done in a week or less. Financing is very common and carrier makes a good product. Im not sure about Kenmoore. Good luck to you and make sure they pull a permit for inspection.

    Well, I don't necessarily "want" Carrier or Kenmore, it's just that Sears was the first call.

    What's the best bang-per-buck unit out on the market now? I need a split unit with a natural gas furnace to replace a neglected Coleman, and probably need it quickly, and I don't have a lot to spend, *plus* the house is likely to see drastic thermal upgrades in the next few years too.

    The house I moved out of had a ~20 year old Rheem electric split unit that ran as flawlessly as the day it was installed...

    All manufacturers have a wide variety of units to choose from.

    I just wouldn't use sears, home cheapo, or any box store.

    No brand is going to give you alot for alittle.
