    Trane has 410A heat pumps which are the same.

    Don't compare brands, but installing companies.

    That will make the difference!

    I am also comparing the few contractor/dealers we have in our area; The few ones the manufactors recommended. There aren't many "Pros" in our area.

    See if you can get "selfemployed" to respond. I don't know if he is near you, but he is in North Carolina.

    Trane makes a good heat pump,and I know many think all I sell is Carrier,WRONG I sell what is best for the job. My father has XL16i with XV90 and father in law has 3 XL1800.I like the Infinity setup,I could have gotten either and no cost for my own home and I took the Carrier(I gave my Ground source to the vo-tech to train the guys on it)I think the XL or 38Y ?? are both fine products, some people it is better to have a roof to keep stuff out of outdoor units,Trane some like the Infinity set-up.The variable speed is a MUST!!Trane model numbers for outdoor 410a(PURON)begin with the number four,R-22 or FREON start with the number 2.
    It's NOT the BRAND,it's the company that installs it!!!!!

    I looked into getting an Infinity installed but the Salesperson said it is to big for my little house, I would need only a 2.5 heatpump and the Infinity system comes in 3 and 4 ton. So he has recommended the Perfomance series, Model 38 YXA and Fan Coil FV4.

    Both good you can put in Thermidistat control with that set up,SWEET. but a Trane 4ttx4030\4TEE fan coil is a good product also.They are both BIG on the outdoor side so make sure you can fit it or hide it.As we said GOOD PRODUCT does not count installed poorly. Please change lineset!

    The Carrier Infinity in a 3 ton will run at 50% or 1.5 tons most of the time, and it will not be oversized. Since they are two stage systems, there is no point in manufactoring them in half ton systems.

    That is what I was thinking when I read that post too. I think some contractors are just afraid of the new technologies and try to stay away from them as much as they can.
