Ideal AC system
My builder will install Trane AC systems. The one they include standard is a 14 seer unit. Though I'm not sure exactly which model it is, I think it's worthwhile to upgrade, no? A friend buying the same floorplan mentioned an HVAC specialist said to buy a one compressor unit with the highest SEER rating. There's just over 30 windows of various sizes and 3500sf in the home in Austin, TX. According to the Trane recommender, the options to consider are: XB14, XL15i, and XL20i. What do you all think? I note the "i" models are the quieter ones but this is a new home and I think they're going to be placed near the garage - do I need for them to be quiet? Is the dual compressor going to be worth it for that climate?
