Carrier System Quote and Furnace question
My furnace went this week. It's a 17 years old carrier Model 58SSB so it's lived a long life already. Technician came out one day and repaired it replacing the circuit board and the pilot assembly for $800. It was was working when he left, but it died again the next morning and I was told the inducer motor now had seized. Another $350 plus $100 in labor. The service company is now offering to credit me that whole amount toward a new furnace. A Carrier Perfomance 80 Gas Furnace CTA 110-112 for roughly $4,000 in total.
If I relace my AC unit too they are suggesting a 3 Ton unit 95,000 BTU Carrier Perfomance Series AC unit with new Perfomance Series Evaporator Coils for another $5300.
It's the first quote I've gotten but they've had my business for a long time and have seemed compentent up until this week. The whole thing with furnace breaking the day after it was repaired has shaken me my faith.
2 questions - do the quotes seem fair? And did the first repair on my furnace end killing the inducer or is it likely that the first repairs were necessary to begin with?
Thanks for your help
