I’m building a new home in south Louisiana and I’m trying to decide which HVAC system would be best. The house is framed and ready for installation. The Home is 3000 sq ft, 2200 down and 800 up. I received two quotes thus for from different companies. One using Amana and the other use American Standard. One of my biggest concerns is controlling the humidity levels inside. Both systems have 2 stage cooling and heat with air filtering. Both systems are using A-410. The Amana system has the scroll compressor but, I can’t determine what the American Standard uses, is it a scroll compressor?
The cost of both systems is just a few dollars.
Any advise helping me make my decision would be appreciated.
Here the list of equipment for both systems.
