-- One Lennox EL296UH090XE48C Two-Stage Furnace with ECM Blower Motor (88,000 BTU’s per hour input and rated at 96% AFUE).
-- One Lennox EL16XC1-036 Deluxe 'R410A' Energy Efficient Air Cooled Condensing Unit (35,600 BTU's per hour, 16.0 SEER / 13.0 EER and produces a sound rating number of 73.)
Lots of details about ancillary equipment they'll provide and work they will do that I barely understand but seems comprehensive. Ten year manufacturer warranty and two year labor warranty (inc. free repair of manufacturer defects).
Price: $8,747.00, but after manufacturer and electric company rebates, $7,397
I can upgrade the furnace to a variable-stage blower (instead of ECM) and slightly fancier thermostat for an additional $800.
I can upgrade the AC to a variable-stage unit with 35,400 BTUs / 20 SEER / 13.5 EER for an additional $1,300.
I can get a humidifier for $450. (We already have an existing one, the contract indicates this will be removed and patched if we don't elect to get a new one.)
There is also a cheaper option for both the furnace and HVAC for $6,300 but I don't think we'll do that. I'd like quality equipment.
- Does the price seem reasonable?
- Would you recommend the upgrades or should we stick with the standard (or consider the cheap one)?
