Kenton Guidry :

When comparing bids it is best to do this.

Kenton Guidry :

Compare the Carrier bid to another dealer that also sells carrier.

Kenton Guidry :

The $6,300 bid sounds like a number for an entire system.

Kenton Guidry :

What exactly did the $2500 bid include? That price is closer to a condenser and evaporator replacement.

Kenton Guidry :

As far as the SEER ratings... You can get a minimum 13 seer, or as high as a 21 seer depending on the size of your unit.
