Variable speed or std. air handler?
Our 2100 sqft. ranch style home has hot water baseboard heat. We are looking at putting an air handler in our attic to add a/c.
I have the opportunity to get a new "York" air handler for $225, I think it is around a $1000 unit new?. It is a standard 5-speed multipose.
I've read about variable speed air handlers and they look like they would be more efficient.
Should I pass this one up and spend the money on a variable speed unit or is the std. one o.k.?
The guy said that I would run my fan on speed 4 for our size of home.
Any advise would be greatly appreciated!
