Hello, I am new to the forums, and appreciate any assistance in choosing a new 5 ton split heat pump system. The options I am considering are the Trane XL20, XL16 or XR15 or the Maytag 1200 16 SEER. We are changing from a 5 Ton Lennox that we have had problems with since we moved in 5 years ago, with that system having been installed in 2001. The price diff between the Maytag and the Trane XL20 with Space Gard and 10 year labor warranty is about $xxxx, or we can go with another company for a difference of $xxxx without space gard and only a 5 year labor warranty. (I understand pricing not allowed, but listed difference to determine if it is worth it to upgrade from Maytag to Trane XL20). The Maytag 12/12/12 parts/labor/compressor. Both companies are well established and rated. We also have a third option of going through a relative of a son-in-law for the Trane 20. He is about to start a new shop with a friend who is leaving his won family shop, not sure how the warranties would work out if he does this out the door between shops. Humidity is, of course, a big factor in our area, as are high electric bills. So those would be prime considerations.
Any suggestions? Comments?
Thank you for your input!
