    Question

    I know, I know, it's all about your opinion, but I'd rather get yours than the sales reps I had out. Narrowed down to two firms, reputible, known - not about cheapest price. Systems seem to be apples to apples, very std or mid-line 80+% GFA, single stage furnace, 10-11 SEER freon a/c, 2.5T, not the high-end PURON, etc.
    Compelte sys replacemnt for very old equpt.
    within 100 of each, but York rep's warrantee is a tad bit better.
    Any ideas to help me get the scales tipped one way or the other?
    Thx

    Which York outdoor unit? The Stellar is a quieter, better built unit than the Olympian.

    Which A-S outdoor unit? The Allegiance has a better warranty and nicer cabinet than the Ameristar. Neither is quiet.

    Whichever dealer you like best. Both brands are OK if installed properly.

    I sell both Trane and York and I would have to pick the Trane. I don't understand the York having a better warranty since it is the cheaper line.

    From my experience selling both brands I would say York has reliability issues. (At least in my area). I must say recently I installed the latest model and improvements were made.
    440 volt capacitors and an accumulation tank help with the reliability issues.

    The H2 I believe is the Olympian series. Decent unit




    American Standard is well made equipment, but who is installing it is the question.

    Both are queit
