Ok, please forgive me, I know enough about HVAC to be dangerous. From what I understand I have a 3 ton heat pump system with a gas furnace. The inside unit is a very old (guessing well over 20 yrs) Payne and the outside is a not so old gibbson unit. Well last summer when it was 103-105 here in south TX I could not get the house under 85 (Wife corrected me, I thought it was we could not get to 80, she says we could not get to 85), so I decided to get quotes before the summer heat gets here again.
I called a local contractor and they have quoted a complete Payne 3 ton 13 seer unit for **. This is to include the inside and outside units, a new pad for the outside unit a new thermostat and the box on top of the inside unit that goes up to the plenum.
This is **k less than the quote I got for low end Goodman unit. It is my understanding that Payne now comes with a 10 yr limited warranty.
k for a new system? Does this sound too good to be true?
edit****This is for a R22, NOT R410A system. House is about 1400 sq feet and it is in south Texas.
