Opinions on Quote
First time having to replace a system. Our heat pump and air handler are at EOL and I have my first quote for replacements, was hoping some folks here can give their input on how well it prices, alternatives, and other thoughts to chew on. Don't have much history on the current equipment because we just purchased the home last fall. But I can say it's not it good condition.
Heat Pump: Carrier 25HCC536 (15/16 SEER, 9 HSPF)
Air Handler: Carrier FV4CN5002 + 15kw Strip
for a little over $6000.
Location is Northern VA with about 2000 sq ft. Personally it feels a bit pricey but I'm not experienced in this arena so I honestly have no idea what a typical price range is, or quality for that matter. Other than these Carrier items fall in the mid range of available equipment, so the inter-webs say.
Lots of good information browsing the forums here so I'm hoping for a good collection of opinions.
I found a link in the forums from last year referencing the air handler :
Price from that link states $5.5-6k in same area (NOVA). I guess it's close, but that was Nov '12, I'd think pricing would come down a bit in over a year...maybe not though.
I appreciate your time.
