    I have a mitsubishi high wall ductless split in my current house, works very well. On top of the high seer ratings, you can stretch the square ft/ton out a little more if you go high wall or ceiling mount units. Super quiet, and I can hold the house at 20 C on a 32 degree day.

    I just purchased another house, it has a newly installed York a/c on the original Carrier furnace. I should do a disecting thread on it when I pull it all out, its the perfect example of how not to install central a/c, in terms of sizing and application.

    Does anyone know where to find Gavin's contact information for a quote?

    If anyone could PM me his number that would be great. Trying to line up quotes this week.

    Cheers

    I called him last week and his last install was actually last Friday. He mentioned he was going in for surgery this week - so it may be a while until he's back in business again. I believe another thread was linked earlier in this thread for his number.

    Just an update - got a quote from W&J yesterday for a 3T Trane Unit (XR13 I believe is the model) with 10 year warranty on parts and labour.
    All in is $3,350 but install is not until next Friday so they're still quite busy. All other places I've talked to (Action Furnace, ARPI's, Airdrie Air) are all booking into August for estimates only. Installs are a week or two after that.

    Seems like a fair price!

    One thing to ask is how their service affects warranty.
    A few companies that I've talked to (can't remember which ones now) have indicated that in order to keep warranty from going void, the units must be serviced each year. If it's not serviced, warranty is void.

    W&J "suggests" you service every 3 years but if you decide you never want to, they would still fix and replace parts within the 10 year warranty period.

    Is this before or after their $500 off? I have a flyer from W&J that offers $500 off the purchase and installation of any TRANE AC unit. Little 'coupon' in the corner for an AC cover as well.

    Been reading about covers and almost everyone says don't use one as they can lead to more issues (mice, animals), and units are designed to handle the elements...

    It's possible it could lead to a mouse problem, also, have to really remember to take it off before turning on the breakers and switching to cool mode.

    We leave ours at the end of the season, as our neighbors have several of those super tall Aspens, and we get a ton of leaves in it if we don't.

    I'm using a 2.5 ton unit per floor (1500 sq per floor). You would need a 2.5 to 3 ton unit depending on windows/direction etc.
