RE: Which one Rheem should I pick?

punapat,

Are these two quotes from the same contractor? If not, I would get at least three quotes. Once you get quotes on the same equipment from other contractors, you will answer your own question - are these reasonable prices?

Price really becomes irrelevant when it comes to HVAC install, when comparing units (apples to apples). The install is and always will be first and foremost.

If this quote is from one contractor, did he/she do a load calculation do determine proper size? If not, I would be searching for another contractor quickly!

The REAL question is - which CONTRACTOR should I choose.

Choose the one with whom you feel most comfortable, and answers ALL your questions.


Good luck!
