Which Heat Pump is Better?
Because we are in a bldg with a central cooling tower, we are limited in the A/C - HeatPump units we can get.
I have estimates from 2 installers, one for a Carrier Heat Pump unit, 13.3EER, 4 Ton, and the other is for a Versatec Unit, 14.7 EER, 4,7 Tons.
The Carrier guy is charging a bit more, but he has done most of the units in my bldg. He also told me that with the cooling tower, you really can't get above 14 EER. They'd be installing a humidistat and a programmable thermostat as well. Their warranty is 6 yrs, COmpressor 2 & labor 1.
Other guy's warranty is 5, 1 & 1 & would not include the Humidistat.
Have no idea which is better.
Any experience with these?
