Folks,

My previous post was answered very quickly by Hollywood. I did not figure out how to email him so I will thank him publicly. I will be upgrading from an 80% eff. to 93% eff. (according to the listing agent for the new house).

Anyway, now that I have been exposed to my options, I am considering upgrading from a 10 SEER York to a 12 SEER YORK. I read some of the older posts about scroll compressors and quietness but I have not found a way to relate SEER to percent efficiency.

I.e. If I spend $100 with a 10 SEER, what will I spend with a 12 SEER of equivalent cooling capacity?

Thanks,

ART

I am not totally sold on the quietness or durability of scroll compressore!!!!!!!!!!
the noise level or sound is different, but not quieter in my opinion. Considering a 10 or 12 seer,...... the average life of an Air conditioning unit is 15 to 20 years before its time to update!!! I do not know the seer equation for $ spent, but do not.... get carried away with saving money where you may actually be dissapointed in the long run. 12 seer is about almost 1000.00 more that a 10 seer.....? Se my point. And PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM "YORK". when I service these units, it's nothing but a nightmare. Their Engineers need to spend alittle time in the field before they design the equipment.......
I have to admit that they are getting better....
