I just moved into a two-story condo built in the early 80’s that has two heat pumps & air handlers – one for each floor. I’m sure the equipment is old but I am not sure how old.

Back when I was looking at it a couple of months ago, the AC wasn’t much of an issue other than it worked.

Now that I have to use it, I realize how LOUD these blowers are and how much they vibrate. When I watch TV I have to turn the downstairs one off because it is hard to hear the TV.

Also, this place is HOT! It was 89 degrees upstairs when I got home and June has barely started. I am guessing the attic is poorly insulated and doesn’t vent well.

What I need is for someone to assess everything and provide a cost-effective strategy. In the past, I end up talking to people who want to sell me the brand-new, top of the line system for whatever brand they promote without considering if it will actually remedy the situation.

Can anyone recommend a trusted person/company that can look at my setup and determine how best to tackle my issues?
Air Handlers too loud/Need Damping

Attic probably not insulated
Equipment probably old

I have a guy for you. Has installed 2 systems for me and carries all kind of brands and prices. I bought a Lennox heatpump and air handler as well as a Daikin ductless system that's awesome.

Heat pumps are not good in extremes - either heat or cold. Call Advent A/C, I had a good experience with them.
