I'm not a DIY, just want comments from pros on this system as replacement for 30yr old Carrier unit. How much should it cost (approx) installed with duct testing? It's a hall closet split-system, upflow with return air right below closet. Plenty of attic room for installers, house in clean tight condition. Old unit still working. Is this equipment a good matched system for this size home and are there any manufactuer promotion/rebates currently? Any help would be appreciated.
