When homeowners and contractors talk about Goodman air conditioners you hear words like “reliable, solid, affordable.” Models like the Goodman 16 SEER R-410A Refrigerant – DSXC16 Central Air Conditioner offer excellent value, good efficiency and a work horse mentality that is right for even the hottest climates. In a recent HVAC prices post on our Share an HVAC price page, Miguel in El Paso shared the Goodman 16 SEER R-410A Refrigerant – DSXC16 central air conditioner price he paid. Here’s his post:
“At the end of last summer our central air system wasn’t keeping up. It was 18 years old and the compressor was making noise. I also found out the refrigerant was leaking and therefore it was just a matter of time before we’d get no cool air at all. I researched replacing just the a/c but that made no sense since the indoor furnace – which we don’t use a whole lot – is just as old and wouldn’t be compatible with today’s efficient central air conditioners. So, I called local Trane, American Standard and Lennox guys to get bids. I didn’t like any of the prices I got and so my brother recommended I call Goodman. He knew their central air conditioner prices are low since he’d installed one last year in his shop. The Goodman salesman was knowledgeable and professional and offered a complete system at a great price. The unit I bought was the Goodman DSXC16. Here are the price details:
Goodman DSXC16 3 ton central air conditioner, coil, and Goodman 95% AFUE Furnace: $4,139
Installation: $2,800. Total: $6,939
I also received the maximum federal tax credit for this complete system. The furnace worked very well all winter and I expect the air conditioner will also. I highly recommend people look at Goodman if they don’t like the prices they’re finding with other brands.”
That is a quality system that Miguel had installed. Here are the highlights:
Keep Your Costs Down by Hiring a Professional
Installation costs are not cheap – but they cost less than having to prematurely repair or replace a unit that has been improperly installed. It makes most sense to hire a qualified contractor to handle the work. This will ensure that your warranty is in effect should anything go wrong. And when a gas furnace is also being installed as part of the entire system, you want a professional doing the work due to the danger of gas or carbon monoxide leaks. The safest bet in every sense of the word is to let a pro install your next system. They’ve got the skills and experience to install, setup and tune your system to be as safe and efficient as it was designed to be.
