    Thanks for the advice.

    Anyone have any advice on what type of whole house air cleaner is the best?

    I was rocking back and forth on this pricing thread.

    Lusker is lurking.

    docholiday,

    Thanks for the advice. Looks like I've got a little more research to do to figure out what I want, but now I know what to look for.

    One thing to consider on the SEER question. As stated there is an energy savings on the higher seer unit. It is fact that the higher SEER will save energy and is a good thing to do for environmental concerns, but if you calculate the energy savings versus the installation cost difference for a 10 to 13 SEER, you will find that the payback period will be many, many years. This is not to downplay the energy savings, but if your budget is tight, the 10 SEER will be a lower cost solution for the next 5 to 10 years.

    Yes, I was thinking that, especially living in the northeast it would be a long time before the higher efficiency unit would "pay for itself".

    I would go with a good service contract over the UV light

    Perhaps both media filter and a uv light.
    But as doc said, talk to your mothers doctor.
    I would suggest getting 2 more quotes.

    I think youor current contractor may be less then 100% trust worhty.


    As far as the badge that Lusker put up, he's just reminding that he is a modorator on this forum, and had to debate if he should edit out the pricing you posted.

    But he was in a good mood, and didn't spank you.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    Thanks again for all the advice. The contractor is a quasi-relative in-law and I've heard he is prone to exaggeration.
