Carrier Synergy 2000 - Is it obsolete?

Page 1 of 2  
Was planning on buying a Carrier Synergy 2000 2-Spd HP
http://www.croppmetcalfe.com/CM/38YDA.htm
One of the 38YDA models is a match for my indoor unit. Was told by a dealer new Gov't reg's coming into effect for 2006 mean Dec 31 2005 would have been last chance to get unit.
Anyone know if dealer is correct and if so, what happened to it?
Thanks
Bob

Its true. That fucking bush did it. Its part of the GOPs master plan to bring the working man down and keep him there. Fucking neocons.

No, Democraps want to make the working man dependent on the government and hold him down by creating a helpless parasite.

Continue dissing George II, and you may end up with the 82 "detainees" BBC News says are on a hunger strike and being force-fed with nasal tubes while they are held at Guantanomo Bay indefinitely without benefit of lawyers nor knowledge of the charges against them, 80% of which are TOP SECRET.
Will somebody please give him a blow job so we can impeach him?

Oh, you mean Bush.
Ah, well I completely agree that those prisoners are not being treated as called for in the Geneva conventions.
They can be shot without standing trial, but they cannot be held without trial. Or held for trial. The only penalty for being illegal combatants is immediate death.

Actually, the Geneva Conventions deliberately avoid dealing with sanctions on "illegal combatants" (spies, saboteurs, guerrillas, etc.). They define lawful combatants (openly bearing arms, distinctive uniforms, subject to a chain of command, and so forth) and what must be done when such are captured. The treatment of unlawful combatants is left to the discretion of the belligerents.

While it is true that the lower SEER for new installs are going away. The replacement of equipment was not on the chopping block as far as I know. The link you provided is for a 16 seer unit, YDA. Some how I can not believe that Carrier is stopping production of those, yet.
Try Carrier direct in the morning. Unless your in the biz some dealers are less than helpful.

Bullshit.
Jan 1, 06, the new 13 SEER regulations go into effect, but you can buy whatever is left over, for as long as its left over.

Every couple of years Carrier changes the name of their systems. They had "Weathermaker" and "Silencer" series. Now they have "Performance" and uh, um, "Comfort" series.
The Synergy 2000 (and to think someone gets paid big money to come up with them) came out about 5 or 6 years ago. I don't even think they make them anymore (at least they aren't in my book).
If you are looking for a high SEER, 2 speed unit, go with the Infinity System (17 SEER in the heat pump).

Well Dr. Hardcrab - Turns out you're right on the money
The Synergy 2000 2-Spd HP is ID as 38YDA The Infinity 17i 2-Spd is 38YDB
Clearly does look like exactly what you described. Minor tech change and a major marketing name change.
Also explains wht SQLit said about it not making sense that the Synergy would be removed when it has good EER ratings. It wasn't really removed.
I've since looked at the product data sheet. The specs are very similar.
Thanks for the rational responses

Chan is a Chinese name. Pretty soon you'll have to go to Beijing for a factory tour.
