Sizing and Pricing in Westerville,OH
My A/C unit froze up last friday and had to get 2 lbs of freon put in...this is the second time in the last 2 years. Techs from 2 different companies recommend replacing the unit. The unit is 2 1/2 ton and 17 years old.
Got initial price quote from local company (Atlas Butler):
3 Ton 14.5 SEER Unit = $6395
Sale rep quoted 16 SEER with the variable speed furnace
Variable 2 Stage furnace 95% AFUE = $5795
Discount = $1500
Service refund = $298 (They installed the freon on Friday)
10% Discount = $1039
GRAND TOTAL = $9353
Including increasing the cold air return duct work at the unit - Sales Rep stated current duct work would only support a 3 ton unit
10Year parts and 7 year Labor
Yearly service included for normal check up

This price seems high compared to others posts in this forum?
My house is 2800 sq/ft with 29 windows (4 on north end and rest on east/west). Current unit is a trane xe80 furnace and a trane xe 1000 2 1/2 ton AC with a 8-10 degree difference between main level and upstairs. I have approximately 22 floor vents.
I would like advice on what brands are good quality, if anyone has dealt with dealers in Columbus, OH area, and what a cost range would be acceptable? I am getting a second quote next week but have no idea what is a good price for my home. I will update this post when the 2nd quote is received.
