If this is an older system you are replacing, the new outdoor unit will probly require differant size linesets and any time you replace the outdoor unit you should replace the indoor coil that matches the new unit.

heat pump

you do not say how old the AHU (inside blower unit) is, it must be matched capacity wise to the other component, if older than say, 7 years, replace it as well for top efficiency and reliability. other than that, any brand for the most part will work, low voltage controls must be changed if reversing valve is energized in heat (rheem/ruud etc)

Stick with Trane or American Standard....Do you keep your cars as long as you do your heat pump??? It runs 24/7.... think about it! ....and compare the maintenance records.....I think they should start to put hour meters on them...
