First, a big Hello to all of you and a big thanks for shareing you knowledge and time.
My 10 y/o heat pump has given up and Iam in the process of getting it replaced. I have decided on a Trane system and have gotten 3 quotes from local dealers. I have no idea what is a reasonable price and would like to get some feed back on the middle quote to see if Iam getting a new one ripped or if it seems reasonable to you. I would greatly appreciate your opinions.
