Price check on Trane quote
I live in mid Michigan (a few hours north of Detroit) in a rural area and I just bought a house- 1,500 sq ft single-story brick ranch with basement. House has a 25+ year old natural gas forced air furnace and no central AC. I want to replace the furnace and add central AC.
Business must be good for HVAC folks in my area, because this is the only contractor who has called me back out of the 6 I've called this week to ask for quotes. Hopefully I'll be able to get quotes from at least two other dealers, but I thought I'd post this one and see if it looks like it's a fair deal.
Quote from Trane dealer:
"Remove existing gas furnace and replace with Trane TUH080 high efficiency 80k gas furnace (95%) and a Trane 2.5 ton AC package (SEER 13).
Install a cased A-coil in the hot air plenum of the new furnace, install programmable thermostat (no model number given, but mentioned a 5/2 model) and low voltage wiring for the furnace and AC.
The above complete and ready for operation with a one year warranty on all material and workmanship."
Total price = $5,519.00
Thanks for any advice you can offer.
