Just looking for a little help on a buying decision.
My 21-year-old heat pump died a week ago.
The first unit proposed to me was the Carrier Infinity 13 packaged heat pump. After hours of research online, I've learned it is certainly one of the most advanced and best regarded units out there. But it's also VERY pricey -- like triple what I thought I would be spending. Even the dealer described it as a "Cadillac".
It would be going into a 1,500 square foot vacation home in the desert where Summer temps hit 100-120 for several months.
Is this unit overkill ... or would I be smart to buy it if I choose to afford it? If it's overkill, what should I consider in its place.
Thanks for your thoughts in advance.
