Buderus & Rheem vs Burnham & Bryant
I'm considering two proposals for the HVAC on my 2200 sf home being built in western MA. The location is remote and very cold and windy so heat is more important than AC. Efficiency isn't my overwhelming consideration as we'll have a masonry heater, summers are pretty short and breezy, and the house will be insulated with cellulose in 2 x 6 walls. What is paramount is comfort, dependability, and durability. I'm planning on oil fired baseboard heat plus central air. I'm comfortable with both contractors and pricing is pretty similar so I'd appreciate any thoughts on plusses/minuses on the following packages:
Buderus G115/28 boiler with Riello burner
Rheem 2T 14 seer 410A AC
Burnham MPO-84 with Beckett burner
Bryant 2T 14 seer 410A AC
*I'm still debating whether to invest in an HRV or do what most people around here do (even those going for Energy Star certification)... put in a couple of good bathroom fans, rated for continuous op, on timers.
