X-13 motor with Bryant 16 SEER-will it be effective
Our 6 year old 10 SEER, 4 ton air conditioner that was installed on construction of our home 6 years ago has always been a problem. We have had it recharged 4 times, they have searched for a leak several times, and in addition it does not cool our 2nd floor well and is incredibly noisy, it is a HEIL. Now it needs recharging, there is an obvious leak (not sure if it has been the same site leaking all along), repair of a part and will cost about $900-1000. We have had the original installer and our former HVAC people look at it.
Our former HVAC people have quoted us a Bryant 5 Ton, 16 SEER and will install a X-13 motor to help it perform correctly. They also suggest moving our thermostat and doing some duct balancing for air flow to the second story. Our furnace has a one speed motor, although it is 92% efficent and sized correctly for our home.
We want to go with a 16 SEER as long as the x-13 motor will work with it. Any thoughts?
