reasonable heat pump price?


I have a friend who's father is an hvac installer. He quoted me $4k (based on the info I gave him, he's coming out on tuesday to look further) on a heat pump with a 10kw heatpack as well. He said I should have a 3ton heat pump (house is 1068 square feet, or 1168..one of those). Does this seem like a reasonable price? This will be for both heating and cooling of course.

EDIT: Yes, I know I just posted this in the wrong forum (belongs in off-topic).

No way to know about the price.

Only contractors that see the job site can know.

Get more estimates.

3 tons sounds oversized.

Have a load calc done.

Add insulation, caulk air leaks, etc, to help decrease the size you need. That will save money every year, in both heating and cooling season.
