Following is the American Standard proposal I have accepted :
80% furnace: AUD100C936K
12SEER heat pump: 2A6H2036A100A
High efficiency coil: TXCO36S3HPD
Bayvent Chimney kit
non-prog t-stat; Permit
5yr P&L warranty if maintained by them - not sure what this means - but isn't this supposed to be a manufacturer's warranty
Need some suggestions on the following:
1. I'm trying to get a programmable thermostat instead - he says he doesn't recommend programmable for heat pumps (what do you all think?) - anyways that would be an additional $110. Eitherway programmable or non - which model should I get for the above dual fuel setup?
2. He suggested adding low returns and making the high returns louvered in the basement to heat more evenly. what he said about the basement makes sense - since the Registers are located high and returns are high as well.
He also suggested the same thing for the main floor (adding louvered low returns) for the same reason. This would be an additional $250. Do you all think this is a good idea?
3. Also, would someone be kind enough to lookup the match-up on this one to see what HSPF or SEER I'd be getting?
Thanks yall... the end is in sight.
I'll make sure I post before and after pics
