How much should I budget to replace a heat pump condensing

I assume 3.5 tons at 350 square feet per ton. Ceiling heights are mostly 8 feet, some 7 and some cathedral, so I figure average 8 feet $5000? $6000? My name is***** i am a licensed architect.

Hi, I'm Tim and I'm an HVAC expert here to assist you with your questions. Please provide all information I request as it makes it more difficult to troubleshoot something when I'm not there onsite. Essentially, you become my eyes and ears. Thanks for the opportunity to help. At the end of our dialog, you will have a chance to rate my service, but please wait until we are finished and you're satisfied you have all the information you need. Please be patient as many times we work with several customers at once.

Phil, a lot will depend on the installer you choose and type (brand) of equipment, but I think $7500 would be a fair estimate.
