This might help you get started:
We've had a couple of Trane heat pumps for our home for 20 years, anf
just replaced them with new Trane units this year. We also have a couple
servicing our business location.
I'm as satisfied as I could be with them. From my point of view, they
may not be the cheapest way to heat your home, but I think they're the best.
Options for what?
Heat pumps works fine for cooling, so for heating. Heat pumps should be very
common in Sunny Kalifornia. Heat pumps suck at heating below 45 F.
If cooling is the primary issue then get a unit that is good for cooling, a
higher SEER. If heating is primary then look for one with a high COP number.
It will not be a heat pump.
Heat pumps are good where the electric rates are not high. Of course coming
from CA the electric rates in some part of the country will seem cheap to
When you get to the area look at your neighbors home and around the area see
what they have. A lot of folks where heating is an issue use a straight cool
compressor and gas heat, or what is sometimes called dual fuel.
So many questions so little information.
Whatever you do, do NOT do business with R. S. Andrews. They operate out of
Atlanta and took seven trips before they managed to properly install my
furnace and heat pump. I actually had to teach the tech how to solder.
