Got a quote today for the purchase and installation of a air conditioning unit and furnace. $7,000 total. That includes an American Standard 15 seer, 2.5 ton AC and an 80% efficiency gas furnace with variable speed blower. It also includes coils, pipes, etc., whatever else is needed besides the duct work that is already there.
My house is a tad over 1,000 SF. We live in Texas so heating efficiency is not as big a deal as the cooling.
This is a local company that has been around since the 60's and was referred to me by a friend that does some business with them. The warranty their installation for 1 year.
Does that price sound about right?
