Heat pump advice/knowledge required

I have in my hands 3 quotes for installation of a heat pump in my house. They are all within $300 so I am basing my choice on quality, efficiency, warranty.... The manufacturers are lennox, figidaire & goodman. Does anyone have any experience with heat pumps and know which are good or bad?

I had a Lennox package unit installed at my old house. Worked great. Never heard of the other brands.

Lennox, I concur. I installed and maintained heat pumps in the Air Force while in Oklahoma and New Mexico and Lennox was the one I had to perform little work on. That's a good thing. Just done expect it to work all that good when it's under 40 degrees outside. They are mainly for supplemental heating only.

There, I'm not a newbie anymore.

Lennox has a great reputation in the HVAC world - Frigidaire is more engulfed in the appliance market (mid to low end) and i've never heard of goodman. Of course, my new condo has a carrier gas furnace so they're not my problem anymore :P

Just so you know, If you go to hvac-talk.com or alt.hvac they all berate Goodman/Janitrol units. I dont believe they are all that bad. Good advice is; The quality of the installation is more important than the quality of the unit.

There are many good units out there. The quality of installation, warranty, and type/manufacture of the compressor are the most important. Pay extra to get a unit with a Copeland "Compliance Scroll" compressor (vice the recipicating style) if possible. Lennox, Trane, Carrier, and Heil (Kenmores Best) are the premier brands.
