Reasonable HVAC for small condo in Northern Virginia
The HVAC in my 1,100 sq ft condo in Northern Virginia stopped working, and due to the age of the system (20+ years), the motor that is broken is no longer available, so repairing the unit unfortunately is not an option.
The contractor I've been using for maintenance quoted me $7,600 to install the following:
Carrier Comfort Gas Furnace, 58STA070-08, 70,000 btu
Carrier Coil, CNPVP2414, 2 ton
Aerosys A/C, THDC24, 2 ton
I only plan on keeping the condo for another year or so, and sinking almost $8k into the unit is simply not within the budget. Does anyone have any ideas for alternative systems?
I've been trying to quickly get up to speed on HVAC systems but would appreciate any advice readers may have.
