Our current HVAC system has finally died. Our outside unit is about 23 years old give or take 2.5 ton Trane. The inside unit is a 3 ton Carrier that was replaced about 15 years ago although not sure of the exact time frame.
I got quotes last year for a new system and they were in the XXXX range for a 3 ton system with heat pump. This year I called different companies out and the highest quote I've gotten so far was $XXXX for a Carrier system and that included changing out some vents in our kitchen that faces the west and gets a lot of sun during the day.
I also got a quote for $XXXX for a Trane system with heat pump or about $XXXX for a Rheem system. I was told the Trane was the best and the Rheem would offer value but wouldn't last long.
Can anyone offer some insight? I'm just starting the search but it seems like there are many options and I honestly have no idea what brand is better over the next. It does appear that Trane and Carrier are the top two in the DFW area.
