What Is The Best Central Air Conditioner?
I'M Looking At Getting A Keeprite Because They Are Known To Be Very Quiet. Are There Any Other Brands That You Can Recommend? I'M Being Told York By The Service Guys But Would Like Your Feedback! Thank You!!!

You are asking a very important question.

Let me try to clear a few things up for you:
1) The Keeprite brand you mentioned is produced by ICP.
ICP is part of the Carrier brand name groups.
2) Most AC companies have preferences to the brand they sell. Examples being: York, Trane, Goodman/Amana, Carrier [ICP family], Nordyne and all their 'brand names', Lennox, etc.
I select Goodman because of value for dollar & warranty protection. Not all 'brands' are available in all parts of the country.

More important than any 'brand name' is the integrity of the contractor installing it.
If you hire a guy doing side jobs who is not licensed & insured as a legitimate contractor in business, you will end up with shoddy workmanship done by idiots that only want your money.

There are guidelines and protocols regarding the installation process of all HVAC equipment. When these are not followed, and cutting corners to 'save time' becomes the practice of a contractor, you end up with a machine which longevity has been compromised.

Brand is not near as important as the integrity of the installation from the very beginning.

What Is The Best Brand Of Furnaces And Air Conditioners?
We Are Building A House And Would Like To Know What Is The Better Brand Of Furnace And Air Conditioner? Bryant, Train, Ect. Also What Should It Cost To Install Heat And Air In A 1800 Sq Foot New Construction Home. We Have 1800 Sq Feet Upstairs And A Walk Out Basement (1800 Sq Ft) That Will Also Need Heat, No Air. Any Input Would Be Helpful.

We purchased a York CH/A about 4 months ago..... the ducts and outside unit were already established, so I can't really be of any help to you on that note, but I can tell you that the install and cost of the inside unit without the rest ran us $3,500 and we have a 1700 sq. ft one story home, and we purchased the one with the 97% eff. rate.. We love it.. it is quiet, and keeps our home comfortable.. andthe sevice man, informed us that it is one of the most requested around our area, due to the eff. rate, the great feedback, and the rare need for repairs...... they haven't had any compliants, and we are also another satisfied customer.

We used to have a Trane , and it didn't work well at all.. we would have to repair and replace parts, at least once a month.. (no joke) .. it may have just been a bad unit, but we will never do that again... Our outside unit is a Bryant, and we have had it for almost 3 years.. no issues at all.....

You ought to be able to contact a CH/A company in your area... most will do a free estimate!!

Good Luck!!
