I've been given 2 quotes on replacement systems
- Payne PA16NA 16 Seer 13 EER
- Trane XR15 15 Seer 12.5 EER
So out of the 2 listed what are the differences? Trane is a bit more expensive by 1.5k more than the payne unit. Both installers seem to know alot about what they were doing so i'm comfortable with both installers and hope they know how to install them. warranties are the same 10 year parts. however the trane installer said that trane offers a 10 year labor warranty is that true? Also trane installer said something about tranes technology actually is designed to cool, while the carrier models mimic it? not sure if i said that right, but what did he mean by that?
with all that being said from a pro perspective is 1.5k the real difference between a lower trane unit compared to a payne unit? or is the difference negligible and the installation is the difference?
the Trane installer gave me a couple quotes this was his middle of the line quote. his low was an XR13 14.5 SEER 12 EER about 1k cheaper than the middle and the best was an XL15i 15 SEER 12.5 EER that was over 1k more than the middle.
