Is this 15 SEER?

BeaufortdanAugust 20, 2012

After ruling out Trane and American Standard as too pricy, I am considering this heat pump from Carrier...

Model#- 25HCB318A003 outdoor unit

Model# FX4DNF019t00 Air Handler

$8180... Is this a 15 SEER Unit?

Quote was less than other units mentioned by a BUNCH!

This is for two 1.5 ton units.

It is 15 SEER with only mediocre HSPF rating at 8. You need to learn to use the AHRI directory.

How bout the seacoast shield rating? I doubt if it has this.

And good forum etiquette would be to keep all posts in a single thread, not starting a new one.

You should reconsider the Trane and AmStd quotes. I suspect the cost difference could be negotiated to make it worth your while.

IMO

Thanks, tiger dunes...the Am./Stand quote was about 4K more...I was quoted a 13 SEER system ( Silver SI unit) for more than the 15 SEER Carrier. I can't justify paying 50% more for Am./Standard...
If I was on the barrier islands, where, I hear units last from 5-8 years, I would get the sea coast shield...

What happened to the $3-400 difference as listed in your earlier thread?

That was for different SEER units...A/S was for 13 SEER.

Foe the American STD 13 (same as Trane's XB), you can get 14 SEER with the Gam5 air handler. A much better HP system than the Comfort 13.

Oh well, you will learn the hard way.

Am./Stand. Guy got back to me...he can get to 14 SEER with variable speed a/h, and this unit is about $2300 more than Carrier 15 SEER. Is it worth that much more with 1 less SEER?
