    Say farewell to this old mis matched leaking inefficient hvac system
    New system will be a American standard 3 ton 16 seer with natural gas 95% efficient furnace all single stage
    A duel stage system was $7500
    This system is $5900 installed

    Pics later today.

    I have to replace 2 units soon (1 upstairs, 1 downstairs). I got a quote for $7,000 each. Decided to let the current ones live until they are dead beyond resurrection.

    I thought about that but decided why wait until its either freezing cold out in the middle of winter or burning hot in the middle of summer heat wave. Trying to be proactive about this LOL...I will cry when I write the check today

    That's a good deal on a 16 seer system with a 95 percent furnace.

    And a new line set that's crazy. Pricing here in Arizona for that will put you in the poor house

    Just think of the money you will save on the power bill though! My power bill was cut by about 35% when I replaced mine.

    Ours is 22 years old and still limping along. The AC unit does not keep up when it's really hot and humid out....it was the bare minimum size for the square footage of our house...lowest bid to builder

    Here’s what they did to the lines that ran under the house 20 years ago
    They used pieces of copper and soldered joints wtf? Also no pipe insulation in the casement pipe

    Stuff in my condo is stupid old. Built in 1980, I think its been replaced once. I've been saying I'm going to replace it and have had the money set aside for a couple years now. Still though, it works, keeps up in the winter, keeps the temp at 74 in the summer unless it gets above 100 degrees. Decided to get a new fridge with part of the A/C $$$$. Old one was 20 years old and ran all the time, electric bill went down $20 a month with the new fridge. Also spent part of that $$$$ as well on some new stone counter tops, sink, and dishwasher in the kitchen, cabinets are original but were painted white when I moved in, they look nice.

    We replaced our HVAC with a similar system last month and paid around $600 more for the new system here in Tucson. I'd say you got a great deal.

    Nice! 6000 included the new central air unit and furnace? That seems like a great deal. I have two furnaces and two central air units and have been wondering how much it’s going to hurt to replace. The central units are smaller units and is one of the furnaces.
    It looks like that beast should keep you nice and cool!

    We have the builder installed Bryant unit still kicking after 20 years. The upstairs coils are very rusty, though so it's on borrowed time. A/c is more important than the furnace around here so I'm hoping to make it through this summer before we have to deal with replacing it.

    Be careful around that concrete pad with your line trimmer. It looks like the pads they are installing around here, made from that lightweight concrete that will fall part on the corners when the trimmer hits it. At least my neighbors pad has lost its corners.

    Found out today that the system I had installed qualifies for a $400 rebate from the company I get natural gas thru. Woot....

    FYI I do it for a living... By drawing the combustion air from the closet you won't get to 95% efficiency. It is still WAY better than what you had, but the air intake should have been piped to the outside. The joint in the old line set isn't a big deal, but no insulation was piss poor. The new system is a nice and clean install. Please make an effort to change filters in the furnace and cover the outdoor unit when it is not in use. Make sure the outdoor coil stays clean and the fins don't get squished. Finally I don't see a TXV valve on the indoor coil. This won't allow you get a full 16seer out of the rating. Again not a deal breaker, but not what you were sold.
    Please don't take the comment as being a dick... I just get frustrated when someone doesn't get what they were sold. I bid jobs every day. I don't mind losing as long as it is apples to apples.

    Pro tip for those needing to change out their A/C systems, wait until winter when the company/guys doing the work are slow. Not a whole lot of demand for A/C in December/January.

    That’s actually my plan

    I’ve been bandaiding my 1993 Tempstar for the last year since I bought the house...it works great when it’s working...I replaced the capacitor earlier this week and been mentally prepping for a full unit replacement

    You are fine sir.

    I asked the same question about running the combustion air intake thru the roof or a soffit, I was told since the existing air intake is drawn from the attic it was not necessary. I can get a pic later.

    There was more than one joint on the old line set, they actually pieced together multiple sections of copper, ya that kind of ticked me off, I paid for new construction in 1998, I expect a solid run of copper like I have now. It is what it is 20 years later.

    I have no idea about a txb valve.

    Never thought about a cover for the condensing unit, will look into it thank you.

    BTW the new system runs great, I have the temp set at 78, the ac only runs for about 5 minutes on average during the day, then off for about 15 or so then starts back up, at noght it only kicks on a couple times that I can tell. Has no problem keeping the house at temp, I am impressed.
