I would appreciate any help on selecting a new heat pump system. Mine died earlier this week and It's getting hot.
I've met with three different contractors and have narrowed it down to a Lennox XP17 or a Trane Xli 16. I currently have a 3.5 ton unit. One contractor did a sizing and is recommending a 2.5 ton unit indicating that the load is just a tad over the 2.5 ton and it will help with the humidity. (I live on a lake in Virginia with lots of trees around). One contractor walked through the house but did not run a sizing and is recommending a 3.5 ton. The third contractor who has been servicing my existing unit is recommending the two stage Trane with the 2.66 and 4 ton unit combined. He did not do a sizing or walk through the house. By now I am really confused.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
