Hello all, We are replacing a 14 yr old system (lennox furnace/carrier ac?) in which the AC unit took a dive on us.

Here's what we're getting Friday:
Coil #CX34-62-FDR 5 ton
Lennox G61MPV 95% gas furnace L.P. 3.5 ton
� Two stage heating and multi level airflow
� Lennox XP14 Heat pump 3.5 ton
� Programmable touch screen Honeywell control center
� Premium air filtration Merv 16
highest rated media air filtration, no ozone
� UV bulb for mold and bacteria remediation
� New refrigerant lines, service disconnect, outdoor electric line
� New condenser platform
� New return air ductwork drop only
� New furnace electrical switch
� New condensation pump and vinyl tubing
� Complete system start up and run test
� Removal of existing equipment
� 10 years "Can�t Write a Check" parts and labor warranty
� 1 year Maintenance visits 2X Initial Investment

Price is $7,800 ...does this sound like a good deal?

price is good considering all the stuff your getting and the size of the equipment. I would pull the trigger. As long as your properly sized. I'm assuming your replacing like sized equipment.

We're replacing a 3.5 ton unit on a 2100 sq ft colonial. Two different estimators said yes it's the right sized units. I cant read the numbers on the honeywell stat.. but it does also have the options for humidity control, if we ever get that. It says heat pump size, 90,000, furnace size 42,000 (BTU's?)
In northeastern Md.

I have those backwards:
Heat pump - 42,000
Furnace - 90,000

a nice system.

you want to make certain you get a two stg thermostat with humidity control, dual fuel compatibility, and outdoor sensor.

I would ask dealer to provide the AHRI matching number. I believe this is the one but you should verify.

1292551 Active Systems XP14 SERIES LENNOX INDUSTRIES, INC. XP14-042-230* CX34-62C+TDR G61MPV-60C-090* 43000 12.50 15.00 42000 9.25 26400

Good Luck

is ductwork sufficient to handle larger unit?
any duct/return sealing?

in new construction 30% duct leakage is not uncommon.
existing ducts usually have same or higher leakage.
you'll really need that uv system if ducts are
pulling in dirty attic air.

best of luck

I agree with Energy... they need to bring in some mastic and brush on or some mastic tape and seal things up or you can do it yourself. I would seriously omit the UV bulb thing unless you have tremendously horrible allergies. The cost to replace the UV bulbs can get old quickly. The benefit to dust control and efficiency with sealing ductwork is huge.

Thanks all. Yes its a 2stg stat with humidity, duel fuel, outdoor sensor, etc.
As for the ductwork, they are going to seal everything in the basement for us.
