Cost of new system

hvac-newbieSeptember 1, 2012

Hello All,

I am seeking advice. My 20 year old 8 SEER Goodman A/C system has finally croaked after a few years of patching here and there. I am receiving estimates from various vendors. One vendor added a dual fuel system as an option and I am very intrigued/interested in it. The quote I received if for a 13 SEER complete system -hybrid for roughly $6900 using Amana Distinction products. I do not have exact model numbers yet but does that price sound average for this kind of system. The basic system he quoted was $5900 which is inline with the price I received from another vendor f about $5500 but for a 16 seer Lenox system. I also received a quote from what I new to be a high priced vendor. The last vendor offers Kenmore equipment and their lowest system 13.5 SEER is $7470 (not even considering these guys). I have a few more vendors coming today but I wanted to gauge the information I have so far.

For all system is would be a 2 1/2 ton, 10 years parts and labor warranty. I am doing a lot of research this weekend before making a decision and haggling over price. Any input would be very valuable to me.

Thanks everyone.

Amana Distinctions is low end. Stay away from it.

What is your location?

What is your electric rate and nat gas rate? Dual fuel only works if you can leverage a cheap electric rate vs nat gas. Getting difficult in these days.

Post back.
