I posted a few days ago about a broken air conditioner thats 30 some years
ago. Well, I had someone take a look at it for an estimate. Basically it
boils down to it not being worth fixing. He gave me an estimate for a new
furnace and a/c (The furnace is just as old and probably on it's last leg as
well) I was quoted $1650 for the furnace and $1550 for the A/C unit.
The new furnace is the Carrier Weathermaker 8000-DLA. The new A/C is the
Carrier 38CKC. Both come with 1 year warantee parts and labor, 5 year parts
and the heat exchanger and compressor both have much longer warantees. The
price he quoted includes everything tax, labor, misc. parts, etc.
I live in the chicagoland area. I have a second floor condo roughly 1000
sqft, the A/C unit is on the roof. My association pays the gas bill (so I
do inderectly with my dues), I pay the electric.
Any input as to if these prices are good, and if the units themselves would
suit my needs or if there would be better options available.
thanks, you guys rock!
