Replacing Natural Gas Forced Air Furnace in New York

I need to replace my natural gas forced air central furnace. I live in Scarsdale, NY. My furnace is 20 years old. The contractor we are speaking to wants to install one of the two furnaces below for a total charge of $3,300 [including labor and 1 year service contract]. I don't trust this contractor because he originally quoted us a price of $5,300 and reduced it to $3,300 when he heard a competitor would do the job for $3,500.

I also want to replace my air conditioning unit. The same man quoted me a price of $4,900 for parts, labor and 1 year service.

So, if you don't trust the fellow, then call a couple other companies for quote.
I think it's best to do the furnace and AC at the same time. Saves a lot of work. I did a quick look, you're near to NYC, so prices expect to be a bit higher, there. Saved two grand by shopping around. That's something.
