I have a proposal for a 13 seer and 14 seer Luxaire. price difference is $. Is the 14 seer going to be that noticeable of a difference?

Depends where you live, what indoor temp you maintain and how big the house is.

Unless you are in a hot climate and/or have particularly high electric bills, 1 SEER point usually makes very little difference in overall operating costs.
When I was selling, and rates here have changed little, there seemed to be a savings of $4 per SEER point per ton.
So the average house going from a 13 to a 14 SEER with a 3 ton unit could save $12ish per year. Probably gone up some but probably under $20 HERE.
I wonder what the salesmen are telling these people I see put 16 SEER units in our little homes in my neighborhood! The equipment will be dead and buried by the time they break even!

the house is 4br 2 bath 1700 sqft. The unit that is currently in it is a 3 ton gas package which is 18 years old. He told me he would go with the 13 seer. The 13 seer is a 2.5 ton gas package, he also said the 3 ton package was too big... I live in East Tenn mild climate at best

13 SEER 2.5 ton sounds good for your part of the world. Best bang for the buck I would think.
