Replacement air cost?
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.
