New central A/C unit
My 30-40 year old a/c died yesterday. I am in the process of lining up some quotes for a replacement. My house is a 1950's rambler with a finished basement. I have about 1500 sq. ft. on the main floor and 700 sq. ft. in the basement. We had all new windows installed in 2009. When we use the a/c we keep the thermostat set to 76 or higher. I live in St. Paul, MN.
My first quote came back at $4163 for a 2 ton, 13 seer, R-401A Weather King. The quote also listed installing a new line set and a new condenser coil.
Is this reasonable? Can I do better? What questions should I be asking when they are doing the quote?
Thank you for the input!q
