need advice about hvac replacement in north fl
Home is 2411 sq. ft. with about 800 sq ft upstairs, upper a/c unit has a leak in the coil, was recently recharged but will need a new system as its 12 yrs old. I have received quotes for what seems like the same system yet they are worlds apart.
The first was for trane 2.5 ton 15 seer system. this system will include a variable speed air handler matched with a XL15i condensing unit. the price for that system is $ 5,885.00, price includes: installation of the new system, removal of the existing equipment, all labor, materials, and permits required. No model numbers were provided. I was disappointed with the unprofessionalism that this quote reflected. I had used this company to handle a fiasco involving a design/installation defect in my moms condo and they handled it amazingly. I haven't decided whether to contact the owner and advise of same.
The second quote I received was for $6700.00 with 0% for 36 mths. I am wondering if the increased price is to account for the financing option?
