Question Home A/C Pricing?

I know a few guys on here are in the a/c buisness. Im looking at getting a new 4 ton outside unit and coil put in. I am not changing out the furnace at this time. What is a reasonable price for new 4 ton outside unit and coil installed?

If you go 16 seer outdoor I would expect anywhere between 5 and 7 thousand. I would charge around $6,200

I just did the outside only. 4 ton 16 SEER for $4100 installed. My coils were sill in good shape and nothing was contaminated. I told my AC guy that I wasn't going to ask him to crawl up in the attic in this heat.

Also has a 10 year parts a labor warranty.

I would say to expect somewhere between 5-10k for a project like this from reputable companies.

I'll also state that usually adding a furnace typically doesn't increase the price all that much and can mean a much better warranty on the whole system.

I guess my a/c man was a good, honest one.
Paid $9500 TTL for a 4 ton 16 seer multi stage with dehumidifier option and duct work with five returns.
10 years parts and labor included.
You can hang meat in there too.

If its a small house, do multiple mini splits and save some money. Plus they are far more energy efficient. Can run 3 (a 2 ton 24,000 btu and 2- 9000 btu) units on my 7500 watt generator if needed.

It is because every house is different, every company is different, and every market is different.

There is a big difference between buying a unit from a guy that you have to wait to get your quote from until he gets back from a fishing trip and buying one from a company with 100 trucks on the road ready to serve you 24/7.

Odds are, that first guy will also be on a fishing trip when the first warranty issue comes up. It's just a matter of which level of service you prefer to pay for.

My AC guy said deals on ACs are hard to come by now. What I had done for $4100 he would have done for $3500 a year ago

Spot on.

We just signed up to replace rip out and replace our whole system. We got some great incentives but it was not cheap. But the company we went with is top notch and everything I've read says that the most important thing is the quality of the install.
