New furnace and installation


So this morning we had a repairman come over to check out the furnace. Come to find out we need a new furnace and evaporator coil. The guy said for everything plus installation on a Trane furnace it would be $5,000. Does that sound about right or should I get another estimate?

Thanks,
L

Without knowing all the details I'd have to say that would be awful inexpensive where I am. I'd be suspicious of the quality of workmanship and service at that price.

Pricing questions are a bit off topic for a DIY forum. Moved to Off topic forum.

That price may be high or low for your area. Get other estimates.

About right price for here. Make sure it's a big enough unit that it won't run 24/7 without shutting off.

At design temps, it should run 24/7.

It should run in cycles. It shouldn't be lit and blowing constantly.

EG:
An area that has an outdoor design temp of 0F and indoor design temp of 70F. It should run 24/7(blow constantly) when its 0F outside, and the house is at 70F inside.
