Air Conditioning - Installed - Great Prices

After calling a few people for AC - Air conditioning units in the Toronto area I almost pulled the trigger until I saw a post from a fellow RFD'r who pointed in the right direction.

http://www.cozyworld.ca/goodman-air-con ... gsc13.html

He's got prices right on the webpage.

who DID you call for prices?
Goodman (and Amana) have plenty of problems and are not recommended.
For comparison, I just installed American Standard unit (SEER 13, R-22, 3-tonn) for $2100 including tax.

Your "deal" is -35 cold.

I actually work for A/C company so let me give you guys some info...

Best A/C out there: American Standard/Trane (they are one company)

Carrier is OK but the compressor will quite on you maybe within 5 years. York is also a very good brand.

Amana, Colman, etc stay away..

Wanna buy an A/C go for a R-410A unit not R-22 (R-22 will be banned for commercial A/C in 2012..

SEER13 is the minimum you can get in Canada now, if you have extra cash then for sure go for SEER19 it pays for itself in 3 years.

You must be an Am Stand dealer to start badmouthing Goodman. Compare warranties from Goodman and from Am Stand especially 14 SEER models.

Considering this is a thread about A/C's isn't that a good thing?

I have the Trane XR13 (along with a Trane XV90i furnace) and I can tell you, it's a fantastic product. It sits outside my bedroom window, so it's very important that it's quiet, and the Tranes are.

Btw, warranty specs:
Backed by Trane's industry-leading limited warranty

* Ten-Year Limited Warranty on compressors and outdoor coil
* Five-Year Limited Warranty on internal functional parts
* Optional Extended Warranties Available. Extended Warranties cover labor, refrigerant and other costs not covered by Manufacturer's Limited Warranty.

Anyone have a KeepRite?
I called a guy who put up a sign on my street, $1400 installed for the 2 Ton KeepRite 13 SEER; I don't know the model number.

The price seems too good to be true, although he said it's only this price until April 30, but I don't know if I believe that either.

I have a similar unit around the same price installed for about 7 years. Not too loud, no problem so far.

Just make sure to keep the outside unit clean by lightly spray the fins and the compressor area with water.

I read it somewhere that if you installed a 2 ton A/C unit, you can decrease the time it takes to cool down the house by installing a 2.5 ton coil unit in the furnace.

Or something like that!

I had another company quote me $1800 for a LUXAIRE, which is a YORK - 2.5 TON 13 SEER, debating between the two units.

Once again as I told you guys before I do work for an A/C company so no one should accuse me of trying to promote a product here LOL

I have Fagnan's here right now installing a Carrier Performance (4 ton) in my house in Calgary.

$4330+GST installed. They were quite a bit cheaper than any of the other installers. Friesen's, ARPI's, and Stein's all had higher prices. Based on my reading, Carrier was a decent brand. Friend's have had decent things to say about Fagnan's anecdotely.
