Question Advise on Heat Pump Quote

Hi All, my 16 year old compressor died and got a quote on a brand new system. The quote I received is for a 2 ton Frigidaire A/C Heat Pump, also changing the evaporator including changing my old manual thermostat to a new digital thermostat. With labor and taxes, I was quated $4300. Not sure if this is a decent quote or not, I have dealt with them before and I'm satisfied with there service.
Keep in mind that the price is for Montreal area.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Mario

Hello Everybody, what I really want to know is if I'm doing the right move to replace my old heat pump with a Frigidaire 2 ton heat pump. Did anybody experience any issues or heard anything about Frigidaire.
Thanks

It's smart to change it out at that age. The price don't sound to awful bad "maybe a tad high but it depends on the job" but I'm not to keen on Frigidare. I would reccomend getting at least 3 bids for the job and ask your current guy what other brands they carry.

I wish I had a quarter for every person that has asked 'is this a good price for ____?'.

Get some bids, and make sure they are offering comparable units. Only someone in your area, and provided with ALL the details of the job could really tell if you are getting a decent price.

Ask to see the Manual J from each bidder.

Ramacima, I live in Ottawa (Ont.) and replaced a month ago my old heat pump.

This is what I got installed: 2 tons HP, Trane XL15, Trane TStat, 10 years warranty, R22. Paid $5800 including taxes and labor.

Also, I should receive a refund of $400 from the Ontario Govt.

As Mattison said, go with 3 bids at least and compare brands.

I like Trane but Lennox and Carrier are also excellent brands.

If you will stay in the home for another 10 years. Id say go for one with a seer of 15 or better so you also get a higher HSPF on a unit for heat. Also ask for a V/S blower on the unit. You will like it and they do a better job. That XL15i is a good bet for sure
