 o
price difference of Carrier heat pump vs a/c only

So, I have decided the tankless water heater is not my wisest choice to meet my cleanenergy rebate percentages. I can't believe the hybrid heat pump could make such a difference, but they claim that heat pump option with a .63 water heater saves the same "Total energy savings" as a 15seer, 96% furnace and a tankless water heater. The markup on the tankless is so enormous that I don't think I can do it.

I took out my quotes, and despite the enormous mark-up, imo, the heat pump is WAY more than plain a/c, with the same furnace. I wondered if this is because it is quoted for Infinity. Is Infinity more efficient or just more $$$$? The quote is for
� Install new 2-stage, 80,000 BTU Carrier 96% gas furnace. (Model 59TP5A080E2120)
� Install new 4-ton Carrier Infinity 16, 2-stage heat pump condenser on legs. (Puron) (Model (25HNB636B)
� Install new matching Carrier evaporator coil. (CNPVP4821A)
$$$$ 14,334 (inlcuding everything, even permits)

The quote below is for same furnace and a different a/c, which I would ask to be upgraded to 24ACC6.

This equip is much less $11,888
� Install new 2-stage, 80,000 BTU Carrier 96% gas furnace. (Model 59TP5A080E2120)
� Install new 4-ton Carrier 16, 1-speed A/C condenser on legs. (Puron) (Model (24ABC648C)
� Install new matching Carrier evaporator coil. (CNPVP4821A)

How much more should a decent non-infity heat pump cost than the above equip? Would it be just as efficient as Infinity? I am about to email the guy asking him this stuff. He will probably be offended as I am telling him that the guy putting in a.c in the neighborhood today told me heat pump is not that much more than plain a/c. Problem is that his plain a/c is overpriced too!

On the HPs, ask for upgrade price on the Performance series 25HPA5 sgl stg and 25HPA6 two stage HP condenser.

You did not mention the thermostat or controller. It should be the Infinity model.

IMO
