hello all:
I'm now faced with a choice of possibly going with an American Standard since the Trane guy couldn't locate a XR11 Heat Pump.

Is the AS - Freedom 80 single stage comparable to XR80 or XB80?
Is the AS - Heritage 11SEER comparable to XR11 heat pump?

Essentially - what is the difference in features/quality if any between American Standard and Trane for these models?
what would be the reason to pick one over the other?
Is American Std better known than Trane or is it the other way round? This is particularly important because if they are about the same price but a prospective buyer is likely to know one better than the other...

thanks in advance
