I have an existing electric, forced air furnace. I have ducts in all rooms and would like upgrade my furnace and add an air conditioning unit. My house is older and small (962 sq. feet) I'd like to keep the cost around $2000

Goodman is the least expensive but you are going to need some specialty tools like a brazing rig, vacuum pump and refrigerant gauges,
