Cost estimation for Furnace and Air conditioner replacement

I have a 2190 sq foot home in MI, both the air conditioner and Gas furnace are original. The furnace original was noted to be 125,000 BTU input. I have been recommended a XR13 3.5 tonne air conditioner and XV95 80000 BTU furnace. They have included humidifier, 5 yr labor warranty, 5 yr AC replacement, 10 yr furnance replacement, 10 yrs warranty on furnace parts, compressor, and air conditioner parts and lifetime on the heat exchanger. What should be a good reasonable estimate range? I have been quoted 6600 (additional 300 if I order by June 1st since TRANE has a promotion till then) and some additional credits from Consumer (460). Is this a good number? I am a newbie to the forum so apologize if this has been covered. I did a quick search but didn't see the exact combination model being covered

TIA

First I'd get a couple estimates. 2nd use know company that does not do a heat load. 3rd I'd spend tha few hundred dollars to get a heatpump. You can heat with it down to 35 then let the furnace take over. I'd also look at getting at least a 15 seer

Thanks, I did get one other and they were not even in this ball park, they were outrageously priced. I plan to get more but in the meantime wanted to get an opinion on if this is in the ball park. Neither one of them did a heat load.

No heat load say good buy to them. If they take this short cut what else are they going to skimp on.
