What is a fair price for a new AC unit including installation in the
Washington DC area. The unit would be a Trane 3ton 10t including the coil
in the furnace.
I heard that starting June 1 you would not be able to get 10t units due to
federal restrictions. Is that true?
Also, what other AC units would folks reccomend.
It is 10 SEER, not 10t. SEER means seasonal energy efficiency ratio.
The higher the SEER, the cheaper it is to operate it. If you are going
to use it more than 3 to 5 years, a 12 to 13 SEER will be cheaper to
own. Also make sure your contractor does a load calculation instead of
using the 500 Sq. Ft. per ton rule of thumb. It will be more
efficient, last longer and dehumidify better than an oversized unit.
This is Turtle.
till after January 26, 2006 10 seer units may get hard to Buy , get , or
Wanting a 10 seer unit is not a real good ideal when they are being phases out
of use. The same ideal is wanting a leaded gas car when the new ones were coming
out with No-Lead fuel types.
Home or business?
Do you have central AC at the present?
What type of heating system do you have now?
The company I used to work, used Heil whenever possible. Though, we did use
Rheem a couple times, and it worked very nicely.
