Need help choosing a new HP
Okay, my Goodman/Kenmore heat pump is 15 years old and I feel it's time for a replacement. Im going to buy one from a distributor and have a friend who is certified to install it (he's an hvac tech at a hospital). My house was built in 1973, brick veneer, pretty typical construction. I'm in south Alabama, very hot and humid summers here.
I've got it narrowed down to two models...
Payne 15 seer
Condensor model # PH15NB030
Air Handler model # PF4MNB031
Rheem 13 seer
Condenser model # 13PJL30A01
Air Handler model # RHSLHM3017JA
The Payne is only about $150 more than the Rheem. Judging by the pics on the websites, the Payne looks to be the exact same unit as the entry level Bryant/Carrier.
