That is a decent unit. However choose your contractor carefully,since it is a package unit the correct sizing and installation of the connecting ducts is the most important ,on the part of the contractor.


Assuming this is for a manufactured home,most common use of this model, manufactured homes,typically has undersized ducts,so the ducts connecting the unit to the home must not be undersized. Also the return grill and filter is undersized.


The connecting ducts ,to be safe need to be 16" round, maybe 14" is short runs. The return filter, not less then 24"X24', add a second return if needed.


On these systems, undersizing either of these ,ups the cost to operate and decreases the life of the system.


Ask these questions, and call another contractor if the answers don't make sense!
