I live in Virginia and am looking to replace the downstairs HVAC system in my dual zone home. The original 2-ton 10 SEER A/C unit was tied to an aquatherm unit. The AC condenser is leaking so I think it is time to replace. I’m trying to determine whether I should replace the A/C with a heat pump. I’m also debating what to do with the aquatherm unit (which only ties in to the zone I’m replacing). The tax credit would be nice, but aquatherm doesn’t seem to play nicely with the systems that would qualify (at least not without being way more expensive. Just wondering what people’s thoughts are. Any help would be appreciated because this system will be worth more than both my family’s cars combined. It’s a big investment for us.

If you are happy with the heat you get from an aquatherm, then I would just replace the A/C unit and exchanger. Don’t bother with the additional costs of a heat pump or compatibility issues. just keep it simple.
