    I have a Coleman unit inside and I was wondering if I could use a Trane outside unit? I'm wondering because someone stole my outside unit.

    Should be no problem, as long as tonnage is the same, and refrigerant. In other words if the txv or piston or coil is rated for R-22, you obviously would have a problem using R-410a. indoor and outdoor unit should be compatible.. tonnage and refrigerant wise.

    Nope! Your gonna need a whole new system. And the new epa laws state that it has to be no less than 20 SEER with 90+ efficiency furnaces.
    You will also need a contractor to insulate the house. Spray foam is now mandatory to get the house up to code or you cant change the system.


    It would actually be cheaper to buy a new house
