Heat Pump Quote for Trane XL18i with tam7 air handler
I am in Raleigh NC. My house is 2050 Sqf.
My old 7 year 13 SEER 3 Ton Lenox system has major Freon leak in evaporator coil. It use R22 which is very expensive. It also has minor leak in out door unit. It is builder grade unit and I spent lot of money to get this fix but never worked right.
So I decided to change it. Both contractor give me quote for 3 ton unit
I got two quote from different companies one is offering Trane and other is Amena.
TraneXL18i (18 SEER 2 stage unit) with Tam7 variable speed air handle using old copper lines.
He is going to use same zone board because it very good and just replaced 6 month ago same thermostate.
basically he is just replacing (Heat pump and Air handeler) thats it for $8100
SECOND QUOTE he gives me TraneXL15 with Tam7 variable speed air handler using old copper lines for $7100.
All the above are 10 year part and 2 year labor warranty.
compressor warranty for XL18i is 12 year and XL15 10 years.
Another contractor (Amena)
He gaves me Amena 18 SEER 2 stage with matching airhandler variable speed air handler
10 year part and 10 year labor and 12 year compressor warranty and if compressor goes bad they will replace all out door unit.
he is also installing UV light for something. he is going to run new copper lines.
Please let me know which is better. I am getting more quotes this coming week.
