Sure could use some advice; need to replace one of my heat pumps...
My 20 year old Comfortmaker (3 ton) was blowing hot air last night so I called a contractor out this morning. He said the comressor had lost all refrigerant, and it appeared the badly rusted accumulator tank was the culprit. He suggested reparing such an old, inefficient unit would be ill-advised and I figured that made sense.
I'm a commercial framing contractor but have no experience in this arena (or contacts on such short notice). Fortunately I have a two zone system, but the MBR is upstairs and it's HOT here in FL, so I authorized the following: Replace the old 3 ton Comfortmaker with (his recommendation) a 3.5 ton Goodman (13 SEER); cost including today's holiday service callXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
I know the forum rules say no pricing, but I'm hoping someone can tell me this is reasonable (I just don't wanna get ripped-off). I've read good & bad about Goodman in the little time I've had to research today. Should I go forward with this install tomorrow am or cancel??? HELP
