Hi everybody, this is an awesome forum for a research junkie like me. I have spent the last several weeks reading a lot of threads, before posting something I haven't found an answer too. I sure have learned a lot & had some good questions for contractors when getting an estimate.
I live in Northern Ohio, about an hour South of Cleveland & am looking at purchasing a Lennox G61MPV-60D-135 furnace with a XP19 or XP13 heat pump. Since we only use a/c for about 3 months or so here, is it nessesary for a 2 stage h/p? I'm not really worried about a bit of a temp swing with a single stage unit. I'm also reading on here that a high SEER rating is not nessesary either for being this far North. The contractor is coming tomorrow to do the Manual J (the only one willing to) & I was wondering what your opinions are.
Again, thanks for providing such a good site!
