York Bid: What do the numbers mean?
I've been reading this forum for a couple of weeks now, trying to learn what I can for a furnace replacement with the addition of cooling. Thought we'd go straight AC but are now leaning toward a HP instead. I've received bids from 5 or 6 different reps, all different product lines and we are leaning towards the York representative. He had recommended the following for our two-story 2,800 sq. ft house (in the Seattle, WA area): 4 Ton HP & Coil/Gas furnace:
95% AFUE, YG9S100C16MP11 furnace
Cased Coil FC60C3XN1 w/York TXV Kit and lineset
Honeywell Programmable T-Stat (no model # provided)
4 ton 13 SEER HP #THGD48S41S1
Furnace Options: Affinity 95% modulating, Multi-Speed Furnace #YP9C100C16MP11
Affinity 95% modulating, Variable Speed Furnace (same model # listed) for an additional $1,450
HP Options: 13 SEER YZB04811 (+$795), 15 SEER YZE04811 (+13335) and 18 SEER YZH0411 (+2,085).
I have info brochures on the Affinity Furnaces and the HPs, but I can't find any info on the Basic Package equipment. Can someone please share their options on this equipment and tell me what the 100C16MP11 means? I'm guessing 100 btu's? Other than that I'm lost. Any advice or suggestion are much appreciated.
Also, their will be some additional ductwork to bring a return air vent upstairs to the second story (currently, there isn't one).
