The installers I've narrowed down to offer these two systems. The
installers are highly recommended and have a reputation for quality
work. We're going to add on an electronic air cleaner - the Trane
system would use a Trane EAC and the Carrier would use the Honeywell
EAC. Prices are very similar. Opinions?
I would think twice about the electronic air cleaner. After it's around 3 to
5 years old you'll start having trouble with it. I have a Trane too and when
I first got the unit you could hear it snap crackle and pop often, and then
the damn thing died and they want a ton to replace it. There has been a lot
of complaints with them. If I had it to do all over again I would get the
unit that has the 4, 6, or 8 inch thick filter that you have to change once
a year. I think the filters are about $38 apiece.
Just a warning to you investigate that unit!!
