Air Handlers.

I have been looking at air handlers. Im replacing one that is about 15 years old. 3 ton packaged unit. Horizontal, mounted in unconditioned space. I looked at Trane, Carrier, Rheem, Goodman, Lennox. They all look the same to me. A sheet metal box with a fan and a drain pan. Is their anything better construction wise? I was thinking of something double walled with foam insultion or whatever would be a better approach than lining some sheet metal with duct board. Something easier to keep clean? So far, I think I like the trane the best. It just looks a bit better assembled but not much. Could be the flashy logo.

    Trane

    Go with the trane there airtight model units are pretty tough and multi postioning is easy ,there cabinets are much better made then rheem ,goodman and first co at least when you remove all the cabinet doors the unit does not fold in nor does the cabinet flex on larger units when the fan goes on ,plus the real bonus is that getting oem parts for trane has always been good to me ,pans ,coils and what ever residental and commerical are usually always avaiable ,arrier is not to shabby either but it has been years since i have used there stuff byrant stuff is also decent stuff same as carrier peace and good luck clammy
