Rheem vs American Standard


Agree with Beenthere. Your more likely to get a poor installation than you are a bad HVAC unit.

A good installer will:

1. Match the system's capacity to the heating cooling needs of the home. (not too much, not too little)

2. Provide best known installation method for long system life.

3. Have clout with the system's manufacturer/distributer if there are issues down the road.

4. Be there if issues arise even in the worst of conditions.

5. Help the HO obtain maximum economic benefit from rebates, incentives, etc.

The label on the equipment does none of the above. It takes a professional contractor.

One post Vicki never logged on again after she made her post.
So she never read any answers to her post. Atleast not under her screen name.

Beenthere, you are patient and gracious beyond reproach. I read your stuff on this board and others and greatly appreciate your comments and level-headedness (how's that for a word?). Thanks.
