Need help with York air handler replacement cost estimate

Proposal cost was $$ 4569
Does this seem reasonable.

Cost to replace York Air handler
220 line 2.5 ton uses 410A
Properly suspend fan/coil unit(s) in attic,

Measure, fabricate & install ductwork to adapt to existing

Install emergency drain pan & line with EZ-Trap & wet switch

Install Plasma air purification

This is ac only system
connected to a York Afinity .

This is to be installed in a
older colonial type home
with access to attic
via ceiling hatch.

Installer said unit must be replaced due
to mold.

Only the air handler for $4569? You could probably get the entire system replaced for that much $$$.

Mold can be removed.

The reason for the mold growth should be addressed first or you'll wind up in the same position as you are now.

Get a 2nd or even 3rd opinion.

Welcome to the forums.

The mold and mold growth definitely needs to be looked at as the duct work may have had mold blown through it also.

That is high for just the air handler. I'm sure having to lug everything up to the attic thru a hatch is figuring into that price.
