sounds reasonable but still a few questions
I've got 28 year old Rheem furnace/ac and while they continue to work fine, it's probably time to swap them out. I got a quote for American Standard and I'd like feedback on the quote:
95% single stage 100k $3312 installed.
95% 2 stage variable 100k $4751 installed.
Both above include 3" pvc to porch.
13 SEER 3 ton, new coil, condenser & pad. Reuse, flush & vacuum lineset $2600 installed.
I've asked for actual model numbers as I have since realized that a) they didn't originally provide them and b) it could be silver/gold/platinum models. Guessing lowest models though.
He recommended not going above 13 SEER for the AC since we only use it maybe 3 months a year. Also thinks the lineset is OK to reuse but would replace if I want to pay; would like feedback on that as well.
I did get another quote for Rheem or Amana but the numbers were about $11k which seems ridiculous to me as there's probably only about $5k (guess) of actual parts.
