Replacement air cost?

Justn2899February 9, 2013

I am looking for opinions on whether or not I'm getting a fair price on a replacement air conditioner. I live in North West Florida in a 2200sf single story home. I got a quote today on replacing both the air conditioner and air handler. I got prices on two different systems. First system is a Trane XB13 with a 4 ton 14 series air handler. Price installed, including adding two bedroom return transfers is $6200.
The other system is a Trane XB14 with a 4 ton 15 series for $9900. Not sure how much better the XB14 is but that is a pretty large price difference between the two. I went through Lowes hoping they would give me a fair price, but they sub'd it out to a local AC company. Any feedback would be appreciated.

Would need to see all model numbers.

And to be clear, these are HP systems?

Post back.

HP (Heat Pump?), is so then yes. The only model numbers I have are the ones I posted. The XB13 with a 14 series Hyperion XR air handler for $6600, or the XB14 with the 15 series Hyperion XR.

Sorry, can't give you informed opinion without mdl numbers of outside condenser and inside air handler.

What size strip heat? Will it be staged?

New thermostat?

Any air filter cabinet?
