“We’ve got a small cottage on the lake and spend as much time there as we can from spring through fall. Last year we added an a/c unit and it sure made it more comfortable in the hottest weather. I looked at central air conditioner prices from Goodman, Trane and Payne before deciding to go with Payne. I certainly didn’t need a high-efficiency unit like the 18 SEER Lennox I’ve got at home so the Payne is just right.
We built a small enclosure on the back of the cottage for the air handler and ran a few ducts to main rooms in the 1,100 square foot structure. We did that ourselves and the contractor installed the a/c and the handler/coil. Here’s what we paid:
Payne PA13NA 2 ton central air conditioner with coil and air handler, $2,379;
Installation, $1,800; Total: $4,179
According to the sales info, here are the basic specs:
The Payne is quiet and does a good job keeping the humidity and the temps at a very comfortable level, even with the door being opened often with grandkids running in and out all day!”
Enjoy Maximum Cooling and Savings with Proper Installation
Models in this competitive price range are popular with homeowners, builders and property owners who like to save money by doing it themselves. For many parts of a home, that’s a great idea. For HVAC systems and components, it doesn’t make as much sense. This equipment requires specialized skills that most DIY’ers don’t have, along with tools and the knowledge of how to adjust pressure switches and variable speed motors so that the unit runs at maximum efficiency and in a way that won’t ultimately damage the system. That’s why you’ll probably get better value over the life of the system if you hire a qualified contractor to handle the installation.
