Yeah, 3R (Reduce-Reuse-Recycle) is why I'd like a used unit, but I know that in some cases it just doesn't work out. When I have all the info on my options I'll have to make a decision. Would a new model be more susceptible to operating in lower temperatures than an older (10-15 y.o.) unit?

One of the reasons I'm aiming for the compressor to turn on only once per day is that I plan to re-tariff our energy so that we pay less at night (but more during the day).
