Default air conditioner prices

We have been quoted about $2500.00 for a 13 seer -3 ton. By Carrier

I have no experience buying air conditioning before .

This is the installed price - taxes extra. Any thoughts on if its a good deal and on the quality of Carrier.

Thanks

We are about to start shopping for ac ourselves. As per consumer reports, repair rates for carrier are the same as lennox and better than amana and goodman.

Get the quotes for 10/10 warranty on the lennox and carrier and post back... We are not comparing apples to apples here I would opt for the Kenmore based on the better warranty.But if you can get the carrier for the same money 10/10 warranty id go with that

We got our AC from the fine folks at AXIS (and i believe our neighbours did too). We got a 2.5 ton installed for just over $2k, and their service has been great so far (and the house is cool too! :P).

What brand and model did you buy? How are they for noise?
We got a quote for a goodman but I'm not so sure about that brand.

My neighbours on either side of me have Goodmans. I don't know if they bother other people, but I find them LOUD. I can here it on the top two levels of my house - most annoying at bedtime. My Maytag is super quiet.
