So I am in the hvac industry, American standard and train are the same brand. As owns trains. They are top of line but also very sophisticated, so if it breaks and can be expensive to fix. Goodman is probably the cheapest brand but some people have really good luck with them others don’t. But on the plus side every tech will likely know exactly who to fix it. Rheems are cheap and simple but a step up above the good man. Carriers are dam good units but expensive as hell just like train. I personal would get the best deal available, which is gonna be in between the Goodman and rheem. If they are close In price I would get the rheem. As far as tonnage, it is just the size of the unit. Each ton provides 400 cfm of cooling.Got a question on New Furnace and AC Unit. I have a few quotes and I have no idea which brand to go with. American Standard? Rheem? Goodman? Carrier? I have done a lot of research but I seriously don’t have a clue about which brand to go with, or which ones to eliminate. Any help and advice you all can provide in the next few days would be a big help.
All are 80% efficient furnace and 13 seer for the AC either 3 ton or 3.5 is what they quoted for the above brands.
