    My small pocket of reistance holds out,but it is a daily battle,we are changing the name from Mushroom capital of the world, to SH** CITY, some parts smell so bad due to the mushroom houses and what they grow them in.I really live in Unionville but they do not deliver mail. Booths Corner,what a place to get GREAT junk food!!
    It's NOT the BRAND,it's the company that installs it!!!!!

    current dilemma

    ok... i now have several options - more like dilemmas

    On the one hand:
    a Payne 80% std 90k btu, 10SEER 3ton, condenstate and humidifier, progammable thermostat
    lets say $X (lowest bid)

    to go to Payne 10SEER heat pump: $X + 800

    On the other hand:
    a Trane XR80 80% std (with 4 speed blower) 100k btu
    and XR11 11SEER 3ton, condensate and humidfier, programmable thermostat

    the above runs: $X + 600

    to go to Trane 80% XL80 2 stg: $X + 800

    to go to Trane 11 SEER Heat Pump with touch screen thermostat (but with standard XR80 furnace): $X + 1200

    I'm getting similar quotes on Rheem/Weatherking as well

    anyways... now the question is which way do I go?

    depends on who is installing them, price doesnt matter as much as to which contractor is installing it,generally the trane is good, and so is payne which is the same as a carrier pretty much all carrier parts just find the most reputable company i can even give you an estimate are you in the wilmington area

    yes... i'm in Hockessin

    my contact info 302-345-9444

    you are right about the contractors...
    these are reputable...and NATE certified
    and the buy was the most forthright and honest about his estimate...

    he broke everything down...
    parts, labor (for a given configuration.. these should be the same)
    and equipment (which varies by brand/features)

    infact the guy was so good a HVAC guy who knew what he was talking about and a also a great salesman - no high pressure - but a good sales pitch.

    he even managed to get me to think that it MIGHT be a great idea for resale if instead of a NONAME brand - I put in a Trane (which every one - atleast second time home owners - knows about...)
    even if it costs a lot more.
    although I'm not sure how realistic that thought is...
    because most people care more about the AGE of the equipment and condition than the brand.
