Home building questions
Building a new spec home in Austin and have some questions:
1. I have two young children at home. Am I crazy to ask for GFCI outlets everywhere? What are the tradeoffs?
2. Builder uses Trane ACs. It's been suggested to aim for a single compressor. Should I go for the XR15 or XL15i? Haven't seen where they'll go yet but I've asked to put them near the garage. How loud are these things?
3. The home is 3500sf and has 4 bathrooms. The builder uses State or AO water heaters. I think it's too big for tankless to make sense. Should I aim for a hybrid unit and if not which line?
