You were quoted 8 tons of AC cooling! How big is this house and where is it located? Did the contractor show you a Manual J (heating and cooling load) calculation? Also why a Merv 16 filter?

It is difficult to comment on the price of the equipment with the duct work included. Is this new construction?
