My wife and I have had 4 companies out to quote a new A/C unit. All 4 companies were referred from friends who have used them in the past and happy with their work.
We live in the Chicago area in a 1400 sq ft tri-level home and this unit will replace a no name 2.5 ton unit installed over 12 years ago.
All four companies are quoting us their economy line air conditioners.
Rheem 13 AJM
Carrier Comfort Base 13 seer
American Standard 13 seer
In your professional opinion, should I be asking them to quote a better unit/higher teir unit.
Thanks for any input you may have.
