I am replacing an older builder grade carrier HP with elect. BU.
I have narrowed it down to a Trane 4 ton XL14i with 5 ton VS AH, Vision Pro 8000 Stat and a Carrier 4 ton 38YDB with 5 ton VS FE AH with Infinity Control. Both systems quoted with Aprilaire 2200 Media Filter. Carrier setup is roughly 14%higher. Will it ever pay itself off? And also what is the advantage of going with a bigger Air Handler?
Same installer for either system. I am very comfortable with the company so it is all down to the equipment. I am hoping that I will be satisfied with either of these setups but am looking for suggestions to fine tune the whole deal. Humidity control isn't real high on the list but warm air out of the ducts in the winter is!! One hour north of Philly. Oh yeah trying to cut down on dust also.
The bell and whistles aren't real high on the list either just long lasting heat and cool.
