• Amana ASZC16 16 SEER Heat Pump Price

    Amana continues to grow their market share by producing highly efficient heat pumps that are affordable and that get high ratings from consumers.  They are also backed by the industry’s top warranty.  That’s a lot to like, and those are the reason Rhonda in Cape May, New Jersey chose one.  Here is the Amana ASZC16 16 SEER heat pump price she passed along to us.  We always appreciate HVAC prices from readers.  If you have one to share, use the Share an HVAC price form at the top of this page and let us know your story and your prices.  Here is Rhonda’s letter.

    “We’ve got a 3-unit bed and breakfast near the shore here and it is essential we keep it comfortable for our guests.  We had our old system repaired twice last year and so didn’t want to risk having problems during our upcoming tourist season. We just had a Amana ASZC16 16 SEER Heat Pump and air handler installed and so far it is working great.  We got heat pump prices from 3 different dealers and then researched the products on this site and elsewhere.  You didn’t have a price review for the exact unit but we read enough good things about Amana – and we checked out the dealer thoroughly like you recommend – so we were comfortable going with this system. The total estimate was closer to $7,550 but my wheeler-dealer husband offered the contractor $7,200 and he took it.  Here’s how the adjusted written estimate broke down:

    Amana ASZC16 4 ton heat pump and matching air handler: $3,900

    Installation: $3,300

    Total: $7,200

    We’ve used it for 2 weeks and the house has been toasty throughout, despite the cold temps here on the East Coast.  We expect it will cool just as well when the temps are in the upper 80’s and our house is full of guests.”

    Thanks for the letter Rhonda – and for the insight about offering the contractor a lower price.  Depending on the situation, the contractor may be able to negotiate a lower cost.  As they say, it never hurts to ask. This can be especially true when you are comparing heat pump prices for 2 very comparable systems and you want to know if the contractor you prefer will match the price of a competitor’s lower price.
