    No pricing allowed on the site, read site rules please.

    I have to comment though on the price. Are they doing it for free, good god?

    Beware the low price. You may end up with a hack job from some guys that get paid by the job and you're install #2 for the day. But please remove the pricing, before the moderators do.

    Worry more about the installation than equipment. Tough to go wrong with either brand, Trane will probably be the more expensive of the 2, but a bad install is a bad install regardless. Take a look at the Wall of Shame pictures here and witness the horrors of botched installations haha.

    Model #s?

    Trane uses demand defrost which starts defrost cycles only when needed. Bryant is timed so you will defrost 100s of times each winter when it isn't needed. That's A/C mode, so if below about 40 out, once an hour you'll turn on the cooling for a few minutes. Not with Trane.
