I am in charge of maintenance for a couple of hotels.
One of my properties has a Desert Aire system in it which has done a good job for us but now the remote condenser has gone kaput and will cost us a little over $8k to replace.
We decided to check our options and see what upgrading the entire system would cost. We got a quote of $45k for a new Desert Aire which about knocked me over when I saw it! I am waiting on a quote for a Dectron system as well.
I was wondering what you guys use and what is considered to be the best? Those two are the only ones I have any experience with and both seem to be good systems. Are there any other companies I should look at? Does $45k seem high?
Thanks so much for any advice!
