TRANE OR SOME OTHER BRAND FOR RELIABILITY & LONGEVITY

Post created: 2012-07-03 Type of Equipment: Air Conditioner Views: 1111

This question was created on the page: http://www.furnacecompare.com/ac_ratings.html.

I am on the verge of buying a central air conditioner. Trane is somewhat out of my reach. Not familiar with other reliable brands -- maybe less $$, I need help.

Go for Goodman or any ICP brand...don't know who ICP is?? most folks don't...well not by that name... http://www.icpusa.com/

Make sure you get a Copeland scroll compressor...the rest of it is just a metal box with tubes. The compressor is the most important part.

OKAY, BUT I NEED A COUPLE OF BRAND NAMES THEN THAT HAVE THAT COPELAND COMPRESSOR. WHAT IS THE APPROPRIATE SEER FOR 2000SQ.FT, HOUSE? I HAVE A QUOTE FOR TRANE 13 SEER, IS THAT ENOUGH? SO I CAN SHOP OTHER BRANDS, NEED TO KNOW BRAND & SEER----SWF-

Stay away from TRANE (in my opinion). I have had top of the line Trane, new, installed just under 5 years ago. More maintenance calls than I have ever had with an AC unit. These Trane are junk. It just went out again and I am told I need a new expansion valve and condensor for $1,000+ in repairs.
