Heat pump advice
We have a hybrid system that was installed in 1997 and the selector valve has failed in the heat pump. Bryant Plus 90i 355MAV060600ACKA propane furnace, Am Std 12 SEER HP 6H2048A100A with Honeywell VisionPro IAQ stat.
We are currently running on the furnace only while we decide how to proceede. I have a quote to replace the thermal expansion tank and all related components for about $1600. This seems like a lot to spend on and old unit with a low SEER rating, The 12 SEER was a pretty good unit when we had the system installed. The unit has been relatively trouble free over ther years.
I am seriously considering replacing the heat pump with a new unit and would like some input on potential replacements and any pitfalls to look out for. Also will I need to replace my indoor coil in order to maintain the new unit efficiency?
Thanks in advance,
