I would like to know what is the best brand hvac system, & what type is the best? The three types I'm interested in are the heatpump, single package gas/electric, & the split gas furnace & a/c.

The top of the line A/C/heating systems are Carrier, Lennox, and even Heil is starting to impress me. These 3 come with a 5 year parts warranty, as do others due to factory improvements and a "we back our product" attitude......This is good. Every Service Tech can tell you the pro's and con's of any brand of equipment, but do your own research, you'll learn alot.
As to the type,.......All are good, but have different cost's of installation and operation. Heat pumps are o.k. for areas which see temps of 34-40* but no lower. Any lower, the efficiency is gone. At this point your system will ghange over to it's supplemental heat source,.gas/electric. You also have to look at the cost of gas (vs) Electric? which is cheaper?
Package Units are nice because they alow for all repair and maintenance work to be done at the unit. Everything about this unit is right in front of the service tech. No need to track through your house. With straight A/C and gas heat, this is a goog choice, but may be more expensive.
Split System.... Also OK, but requires 2 major pieces of equipment.
All Types are widly used in the industry and can make your living more comfortable. The big Question is,...What's best for you? A contractor can help you decide....

Sorry I dragged on and on....
Hope this was of some help to you.

Thanks,

I appreciate the information. I believe I am going to go with a gas furnace & separate A/C unit. But I am not sure if I want a Lennox or American Standard. The price is very similar on both systems.

Some of the best HVAC systems include Trane, Lennox, and Carrier are some of the better built HVAC system equipment. With this better quality comes price so be prepared to pay for a quality air conditioning system.

For quality ac repair San Antonio call AAA Duct Cleaning. Free San Antonio furnace repair estimates.

BEST system is hydronic (hot water) heating, cast iron rads or cast iron baseboard and separate system for ac as very few people enjoy scorched heating and dust mites

To keep it simple think of it this way . What best conveys electricity is usually great for heating copper, steel AIR is a great insulator and does not hold the heat

Cast iron holds the heat a lot longer then copper and is a quiet system

Using ducts for both cooling and heating means your compromising one of the systems.
