Best type of AC/heat pump unit
I have three heat pump units in my house unfortunately. Looked into redoing the ducts but it was too costly. Replaced one last year with a new Lennox 2T and it works fine for a small area. Now have a leak in the air handler - 7 year old goodman or some other low priced brand - not installed with compressor. Feel it might be best to replace the entire unit and start over. Given two options by local dealer who I like to use - Lennox XP14-036 15SEER - @$5894 1yr warranty labor and I believe 5 year warranty parts from Lennox; or Trane XL15i 15 SEER @$7,220 which comes with 10 years parts and labor warranty. I'm in the dark about all this. May not be here another 10 years (I'm almost 65 and house is too big) but do want a unit which will work correctly - it's for the main part of the house which also has cathedral ceilings. Thanks for any advice.
