Need new A/C head swimming!
My evaporator coil on my 13 year old Trane system is leaking badly. It would cost at least $1,500 to replace the coil, so it seems like I might as well change out the system considering the age of the unit.
Got a quote for Trane XB13 with Hyperion Air Handler including plenum, drain line, start collar, and drain pan replacement for $5,700.
Got a quote for a Heil 13 SEER unit (similar grade to the Trane) with pretty much the same everything else for about $4,500.
I had never really heard of Heil before. I was actually kind of shocked at the prices. The mid range Trane unit the first company quoted was upwards of $8 grand! My house is only 1300 sq feet for goodness sake! Am I being unrealistic? I am going to try to get at least one more quote today, but it's hard with work and the fact that I need to get the AC working so I can get back in my house ASAP. I cant stay there right now in 90 degree heat and 95% humidity.
