We are closing on a used home and are planning on replacing the HVAC system. My question is I have three quotes I'm looking at as follows.
First quote is not to replace the furnance; only the units and coil. The people who quoted said furnace looks newer, but is "builder grade." I don't remember the name, but could get it if needed. Question is it a good idea to replace the AC without replacing the furnace? Would I be ok with this option? Cost is about 28% less than option 2. However, I want it done right and am willing to pay that cost if it would make a difference.
I don't think I'm going with the 2-stage system due to costs, but I'm wondering if I should upgrade the single stage to the G60V Furnace to get the variable speed motor if I got with option 2? Any advice is appreciated.
