Trane xl16i vs Rheem Prestige 17
We appreciate any input on the following purchasing decision: Buying 3200 s/f two story house in coastal NC. Currently there are 3 HPs, however only one (a 1 1/2 ton unit in a downstairs converted garage bedroom, bath and sunroom) is operating. The two others (2 ton & 2 1/2 ton) not running. All ductwork needs to be replaced, we will be changing out to efficient windows and adding insulation.
Deciding between going with 2 new heat pumps on both levels, OR heat pump upstairs with dual fuel split system downstairs.
Heat Pump only systems:
Trane XL16i 4TWX6024 with TAM7AOB30 (same unit up and down)
Dual Fuel & Heat Pump Systems:
Upstairs: Trane xl16i w/ TAM7AOB30H21SA trane BAYEVAC05BK1AA
Downstairs same heat pump as above with Trane TUH2B060A9V3VA 95% gas furnace w/ 4txcb004cc3hca coil
Upstairs: Rheem RPRL024JEC 2 TON w/ RHPLHM2421JC AND RXBH-1724C05J
Downstairs: same heat pump as above w/ RGRM06EMAES 95% gas furnace s/
All three options are priced within $1500.00 of each other after all rebates and credits. The Rheem is least expensive and the Trane dual fuel is most expensive. Actually awaiting one more quote on the all-heat pump Trane, which I expect to be perhaps lower that our last.
