Install new furnace and A/C

Hey everybody, thanks for reading my post. We live in Maple Valley Wa. where everybody says it dosen't get hot enough for ac, I beg to differ. We have only lived in this home one summer and thats enough for me. The air just doesnt curculate and is just becomes very uncomfortable.

Anyway, I had a guy come out and take a look and he gave me a bid of 4900. This was a friend of a friend doing this under the table. I think its a great price but I can't shake the thought of doing it my self. I would love to try it and learn about the process. I have extensive knowledge of ac as I'm an automotive technician but don't know if this is something I can tackle.

I thought I'd let you guys know my thoughts and see what you think. The guy that came out was going with a 80% furnace and 14 sear ac unit. My home is a split level 2300 square foot.

Ive been looking on line and have found lots of goodman complete kits for around 2000. I'm not sure what quality those are.
Could I get into legal trouble by doing this myself??

Any imput would be great!

Still need a tech to do start up.

Stationary A/C is section 608. Your 609 doesn't cover it.

Goodman is the number one selling brand in the us. They have the strongest warrenty in the busness. If you buy any resuidental unit online (any brand) You will loose all warrentys. The manufactures keep very good records of where there systens are sold. Best to let a tech do this for you.
