New Addition/New American Standard HVAC help
I am in Chicago and am adding a 2 story 1000 sq ft addition. The HVAC segment of my bid includes either a 95 AFUE (gold?) American Standard two stage and 15 SEER AC unit for $7900 plus $4k for additional duct work. The other option is the 95 AFUE modulating unit (platinum?) and 16 SEER AC for $8900 plus $4k ductwork. Is the AC unit overkill since I have variable or modulating on my furnace? Should a heat pump take the place of the ac unit?
Does these seem like reasonable bids?
