“I purchased a Trane HVAC 3-Ton XL18i with Heat Pump & TAM7 air handler from Nick Dolinic Heating & Cooling (through Lowes). The system replaced our upstairs electric heating/cooling system. It's a 2-stage which also helps save energy.
Looking back I am glad I went with this overall energy efficient system; after reading more since, I am glad I went with the heat pump and 2-stage system.
After the install I've monitored AmerenUE's website to see my daily electric usage; we've had days of 58 kWh and 61 kWh which compares to 147 kWh on comparable days int he past. The new system will help pay for itself which is awesome.
I found the group of installers great to work with & knowledge. The install in our attic looks well done. Also they went out of their way by taping my skylight tube in my attic (which was separating), helped me carry a temporary in window unit downstairs, and later came back to help me with another job!”
