I am in the process of getting bids for a new heating and air conditioning system. So far I have gotten bids on the Amana RCE Prestige (14 seer) and the Carrier Performance (14 seer).
I know the general advice is to not worry so much about brands but to get a good installer. However how on earth would I know if they are a good intaller. It is hard enough to get people to just show up on time or at all. Nobody in our area does a man J calc,( they look at you as though you are speaking Greek) they just go by square footage. One company seems professional, very nice computer printed bid, but the guy who gave me the bid isn't the one who is going to install it.
So just as far as brands, which do you think is better?
Is one quieter than the other?
Does one of them typically have less repairs?
