Carrier AC + Payne Fan Coil - Opinions on this match?
I have collected 3 quotes on replacing my 19 year old AC system. One of the contractors who was the lowest bidder (lower by 13%) quoted the following:
Carrier 24ABB336A003 13 SEER Puron AC
Payne PF4MNA037T00 Fan Coil with ECM blower motor

When I asked why a Payne coil rather than Carrier, the answer was that this unit is cheaper but equivalent quality to Carrier.

Does anyone have opinions on this combination?
Does anyone have experience with Payne fan coils?

Thank you.

The condenser is builder grade that has the name of carrier.

The airhandler is the same design as all carriers airhandlers, but made in mexico. So put a foreigner to work and go with the payne.

If price is your leading factor and quality of install isn't, might as well go with the matching payne condenser which is made in mexico too and is a carrier design and cheaper too.

Its not the name of the brand....its who installs it.
