    Too bad nathan. Heat pumps are definately nothing new, been around for over 30 years. 410A has been around for probably 8 and the control is fairly new but it doesnt have any real problems.

    Sounds like somebody needs to move into the 21st century.

    I agree, but as a homeowner we don't lead, we follow. I'm sure it will change locally. The local building activity has been so hot for so long that there may not be much incentive to do anything different.

    Thanks again.

    Just for higher SEER AC, nothing for heating as far as I know. All the money is gone for this year. Usually runs out by sometime every summer.

    I take it back. More funding just became available. A 14 SEER unit with VS qualifies for $565 rebate. Now I'll have to check to see how much more a 16.5 SEER 2 stage Bryant would be. That would be worth $725.

    I'm sure it's the same with many different types of businesses.
