Getting a new heat pump...a few questions..
My current heat pump finally shot craps, so I'm replacing. I got three quotes. I decided to go with a great company that has a great reputation. They were the only quote to measure, inspect, and run calculations on a computer program.
So to the question. We live on the southern Oregon coast...weather is very moderate (30 - 60 degrees F) is normal and close to the extremes. The home is 3000 square feet (measured by them at 2800). The current system is a 4 ton pump/4 ton handler (Trane). The company quoted a 3.5 ton Trane XL15 pump/4 ton variable speed handler.
Does this sound right for such a large house? I guess it all goes back to the weather here...not that extreme. Just wanted some expert thoughts!
