Will the 2006 requiremnts for 13 SEER on replacement units cause a reduction in prices of 13 SEER systems?
Will there be a "fire sale" of 10-12 SEER equipment starting soon?
I have 2 Heat Pumps that need some work. One system (1 year old condenser unit, 16 yo air handler) needs a new evaporator coil. I am thinking of replacing the entire air handler unit with a 12 SEER to match the condenser. Am I messing myself up by keeping this system at 12 SEER if I can't get parts for it in the future?
Other unit (16 yo) has a slow leak in the evap coil. I am thinking about nursing this along until something major blows, hopefully I can get 2-3 more years out of this system. By then the 13 SEER systems may have come down in price.
I also would like to see how the R-22, R-410, or other new refrigerant situation shakes out.
All comments, thoughts, suggestions appreciated.
