heard of any complaints from them. In fact
I have taken photos of their installation and plan on installing mine
exactly as theirs was installed.

cycles the condensers had to be replaced and we cleansed the dust off the
elements. All is well. We do have to run the fans on high so as not to over
heat the unit. The thermostat only runs the heating element.
