    Looks like Costco only installs Lennox brand which I think I want to avoid. Their warranty appears less than all the other brands and they have proprietary parts which seems to equal delays if a repair is needed.

    RE family here. Be sure to ask about what's available/wait times. A recent client was told 15 weeks lead time to get the unit they want. They claimed it was due to chip shortage issues.

    Just replaced ours a few months ago. Our other unit was 16yr old. We have 2300sqft two story home in NY. Cost was $6500 including some duct work that needed replacing. Itís a Lenox.

Have had great improvement or total elimination of: migraines, bloating/distention, heartburn, cystic acne, canker sores, bleeding gums, eczema on elbows, dry skin and scalp, muscle cramps, PMS, hair loss, heart palpitations, fatigue. I'm amazed.

    We had to replace the unit at our previous house. Our neighbor was in sales for AC units and gave us a hint that American standard and trane were the same. We went an American standard and were happy with it.

    We moved 4 years ago and our current house has a trane and it has been fine.

    How much did you pay? We just had another estimate today. $21,750 for an American Standard 18 SEER variable speed unit! This guy said 5 ton as well even though our house is only 1850 sq ft. Maybe because we're in the valley of Los Angeles where it's often over 100 degrees in the summer?

    We have another American Standard guy coming tomorrow and a Trane guy coming next week. I want to get estimates from Carrier and Bryant as well.

    I realize I can't compare to that $11k estimate I got earlier before doing any research because he never listed a brand or type of system (single, two speed, variable)! Ugh.

    Yes, I just emailed him back for clarification on his estimate and asked about brand, speed, and SEER. I only want to be comparing apples to apples. I had no clue two months ago!

    You may need 5 ton since it is so hot. When I asked DH about the size he said "3.5 is plenty, unless you live in Death Valley." So if it's often over 100 there, I'm sure that's why. I didn't realize it got that hot near LA.

    Yes, sometimes it's even in the 80s in December! This summer has actually been pretty mild so far, mostly in the 80s and 90s.
