Payne has been around for nearly a century and the brand has experienced a revival as part of the Carrier family. A small lineup of quality products is their current focus – not trying to do too much but doing it very well. We received a Payne PA16NA Central Air Conditioner Price 16 SEER R-410A review from Dottie in Keene, New Hampshire. We appreciate HVAC prices submissions because they give our readers a chance to get an idea of what different brands cost as well as their features, so thanks for sharing! Dottie writes:
“Last August we had a terrible storm here that tore a large branch off the neighbors maple tree – it wiped out our central air conditioner as well as doing some damage to the side of our home. The unit was just 5 years old. We called the heating and cooling company that had installed the unit and they were out of business, so started making other calls. We had a few of them come and give us central air conditioner prices and the Payne PA16NA was the most reasonable. Some research online indicated it’s also a quality unit, so we had it installed. We had a sweltering few weeks after it was installed and it handled the heat very well. Our home was cool, dry and comfortable. The guy who did the work thought the old a/c was undersized – a 3 ton unit. The new one is a 4 ton unit and seems to do a better job. The insurance covered most of the cost and we got a better central air conditioner. Here’s what we paid:
Payne PA16NA 4 ton air conditioner: $1,679; Installation, $1,300; Total: $2,979
I’d never heard of Payne, but we really think this is a fantastic air conditioner!”
Dottie should get many years of great service from the Payne PA16NA air conditioner. Here is what it offers:
Get what you Pay for with Professional Installation
The best way to get your money’s worth from a quality model like the Payne PA16NA air conditioner is to have it installed by a qualified contractor with the skill and experience to do it right. Even those with strong DIY skills often stay away from HVAC installation because of the specialized skill set and tools required to install, set up and adjust an HVAC system for good performance. A properly installed unit will run at its highest possible efficiency for the longest amount of time – factors that make it worth it to hire a pro to do the work.
