First of all, are you limited by condo covenant to an 80% eff furnace?

Rheem depending on mdl series is a quality brand.

However, the mdls quoted both furnace and outside AC condenser are bottom end. I would not recommend either.

If you like, I can offer a better suggestion. But if this is strictly a decision based on price and budget, then I will pass.

I have to stick with 80% because more efficiency need separate exhaust. It is for condominum. you can give me suggestion on it.

"Our AC and Heating system is fail"
Specifically which element failed? There are numerous YouTube videos showing how to replace contactors, capacitors, and condenser fan motors.

DO NOT post multiple threads on the same topic!

I have a 15 seer system that was installed 2 years ago and I am very satisfied with it.
