American Standard has been producing quality HVAC equipment for many decades and their American Standard Gold SI Heritage 13 Heat Pump is just another example of their commitment to performance and affordability. In this HVAC prices post from Artie in Lucas, Texas sends the American Standard Gold SI Heritage 13 heat pump price he paid along with a few details.
“I’ve been flipping houses here for years and am always looking for quality HVAC components to use in the houses. I choose nicer homes in good subdivisions because I get a much better return on them, so I also use higher quality HVAC systems. Some time ago I discovered how much better the current generation of heat pumps are than those of 15-20 years ago. I also found that American Standard makes a great line of affordable units that are reasonably efficient. They actually become a selling point for me when I show the houses to prospective buyers.
Last fall I bought another cheap house from the bank and like so many others it needed major work, including a new heating and cooling system. For me the answer was easy. I called the American Standard dealer and booked him to install a new heat pump and air handler. I used to get several bids on several heat pump prices but the American Standard dealer was usually the lowest, or close to it, and they always do a very professional job. In the 16-18 installations they’ve done for me there’s been maybe 2 minor issues and I’ve never heard of any of the units having serious mechanical problems. So after a brief discussion of options here’s the bid I got:
American Standard Gold SI Heritage 13 SEER, 2.5 ton / 30,000 Btu split system: $3,119
Installation: $2,400; Total: $5,519
In the bids I get on these systems the installation cost varies the most since every situation is different. The American Standard crew did another excellent job on this one and I sold the house for a nice profit within a couple of weeks of completion. I really think having a quality, brand new system helps me sell these homes.”
A nice system like the American Standard Gold SI Heritage 13 heat pump will definitely be attractive to a prospective buyer and will deliver quality heating and cooling for them. Here are the details on this unit:
Have a Pro Do it Right
Choosing the right installer is just as important as choosing the right heat pump. A properly installed heat pump will perform up to its capacity and run problem-free for a longer period of time than one that is improperly installed. That’s why it is always a good idea to choose a qualified contractor to do the work. You’ll get the best bang for your buck and if, like Artie, you sell your home the unit will be a sales point and you won’t have to be as concerned about the new owners having trouble with the system.
