what i sent is a quote - so i do not know if there is a 0 or 6 in between - are you still out there?
Expert:  airheatman replied 11 months ago.

In New York this s probably not far out of line.I do recommend getting at least 3 estimates though if you do not have a regular ac guy you trust as prices will vary among contractors even in same city due to each companies overhead and operating cost.

The basic wholesale cost of the 3 ton 16 SEER system is in the low to mid 3000 depending on company's buying power.

AS a rule of thumb you should expect to pay double wholesale cost for equipment with installation. So a fair price can be as low as 6K depending on companies necessary markup.

sounds like $6k is more appropriate?
Expert:  airheatman replied 11 months ago.

The missing number is ***** 6 , since it is a 3 ton (36000 btus)

5-6K would be about right here in Alabama but there it will be slightly higher due to cost of living difference.

I expect around 6000 to 7000 would be fair.But again I would get a couple more estimate ,usually free) so make a comparison on your exact market price.

I think the 8K is going to be a little high
