Deciding on a Trane or Rheem
I have to replace my A/C system as soon as I can because the radiator in the condenser is totally rotten in the outside part so the system is cooling half of what it was before My current system is 2 ton Corsair. I live in Florida, in the west of Boca Raton. My house is 1300 SF villa, so common wall on each side, 3 sliding doors, 2 windows, and the front door. The sun only hit the front and smaller (80"X 72") in the late afternoon. The ceilings are 8' high but the dining /living room area that has a vaulted ceiling , let's say about 11-12 feet high.
I upgraded the single return to a return with a filter in each room and a main filter at the entrance of the air handler, which is in horizontal position in the atic with easy access to it. It is mounted in an space 24" wide and 5 to 6 feet long but could be more.
So, I am deciding on a Rheem or a Trane 16 SEER system, I called a few companies to get prices but didn't get any info of the condenser or air handler models. The prices I got for a 16 SEER Rheem system are between $2000 and $2300 don't know about the Trane ones, I guess a little more.
I would like to hear some opinions from you guys and advise on what I should get .
Thank you in advance.
