I live in the tidewater are of Virginia, near Williamsburg.
I have asked several HVAC companies to quote me on a new system,, some say 16 seer Ac, variable speed blower and 90% + 2 stage gas furnace, others say 17 seer 2 stage hybrid heat pump with variable speed blower and 80% 3 stage gas furnace. All Carrier infinity brand.
1.) which is going to be the best choice for my area of the country
2.) if I go with the heat pump shoul I stay with 80% 3 stage furnace or go to 90+% 2 stage gas furnace?

Thanks I need to make decision this week
