How much should it cost?

I want to replace my existing Bryant gas furnace and A/C. It's 20 years old and it breaks down once or twice per year.

After my latest repair, I asked the repair contractor to give me a quote on a new system. He proposed a 114,000 BTU Trane XV95 a Trane 4-ton XL19i with a new inside coil. The installed price was $12,420. There's no duct work to be done and he wasn't going to replace the thermostats (I have a zoned system.)

I know that no one could estimate the price without seeing the job, and Trane has a good reputation, but does this sound reasonable? I'm going to get more quotes. I'm just trying to get a ballpark idea of what this equipment should cost with installation.

Have you gotten a response yet?

Good evening,

I am looking at the same system but haven't gotten a price at all yet. I'm currently looking on the internet to see what it maybe. I was thinking of going Baxi boiler with radiant heat but someone told me it was way overkill and to much money.

It sounds about right for The Hamptons, Beverly Hills, or Palm Beach, Florida. Hopefully others weigh in on this. -considering no ductwork.

I've had one PM response. It provided a quote for a similar system, but it confirmed that my quote was too high. I'm currently considering a Rheem 95% furnace with a 14 SEER A/C. That quote is about %7K installed. That sounds much better to me. The system doesn't have as many bells and whistles as the Trane system, but I don't think the payback with the Trane system justifies the extra cost.
