I have a quote for a Carrier 38EYG060 5-ton 12.5 Seer Puron heat pump. If you add a Carrier Infinity FE4ANF006 variable speed blower coil with confort heat and humidity control does the Air Handler make the unit have a higher than 12.5 SEER. This unit is about the same cost as the TRANE XL16i but seems to have much lower SEER rating.
As I posted on another thread, I live in the deep south with hot, humid summers. The costs or higher rated Carrier units are just out of my price range. I do plan to live in the house for many years to come.
Thanks for any help you can give me.
