Which would you recommend for Butler(near Pgh) PA?
I got a quote for the roughly the same price with these perameters:
Rheem has double the warranty and includes Mod tstat.
Infinity includes non-progammable tstat.
Do I need an infinity tstat? My installer said no.
Is a 7"x24" return drop to my furnace sufficient to run 1 of these systems at 75,000 btu with 2.5 ton a/c?
Contractor says yes. But if you read my other posts, others have said no. Another contractor wants expand the return drop to 8"x25". That doesnt seem much of a difference, or is it. Another contractor wants to expand my return drop to 16"x24". That seems overkill, or is it?
My return air returns dont seem to pull any air. I did the tissue test. This contractor said that he felt it was a blower problem, and when the new equipment is installed it will most likely take care of it. Is this possible?
The other Rheem installer wants to look into the ductwork in the basement. He feels he can fix the problem by doing this, but couldnt tell me how. He also said that he would not put in a Rheem modulator because of the returns not working.
Lastly, I did like the contractor I talked to today, but I am not opposed to suggestions by you all. If you recommend a contractor in my area that is competitive in price, and can tell me if my ductwork is good let me know.
Hopefully with your advise I can decide which contractor to go with.
Thanks again. You all have really helped me more than you know!
