Who makes the best cabinets. Ones that will withstand salt air
coastal environments without rusting out in a couple years. Or ones
that can withstand being in the AZ desert sun without fading away.
Carrier...same as Bryant both owned by United Technologies
Trane...same as American-Standard both owned by American-Standard
Ruud and Rheem... same unit owned by same manufacture (I think XLR)
Lennox and York...same owners
Goodman and Amana same owners
do your own damn homework. some manufacturers offer composite bases
for their condensers, some are metal. Some have heavier guage
galvanized steel than others. Only one goes to the trouble of
baking a powder coat finish on the lowly screws holding the cabinet
together. Some have copper aluminum coils that rot out rather quickly
in coastal corrosion areas, some have all aluminum coils that dont rot
Doesn't really matter what brand, what matters is the quality of the
installation. If the finish gets a little powdery or starts to weather, a
coat of some good automotive paste wax will usually restore a "like new"
