contractor installed wrong heat pump - rheem rpql

Hi guys,

Thanks to the recommendations on this site I hired a contractor to install a Rheem heat pump. RPQL-JEZ. However they put in the JAZ instead.

I told them they will need to adjust the price of the contract, however I have been looking everywhere online and can't find out how much the true price difference should be. I called Rheem, and a distributor but nobody would tell me.

Any suggestions on how much I should expect to have the contract reduced by?

The JEZ has the good diagnostics associated with that system.

Dealer should change the condenser out. That would be my choice.

Otherwise about $200-300.

according to my price list more like around $100 to $150 depending on what tonnage the system is. but you probably need a little compensation for not having the unit you were suppose to have. otherwise they need to install correct unit.
