It all depends on what you are getting for the price. I had my heat pump
replaced in December. I'm not home at the moment, so I can't go out to
check the size rating on it, but it was sized for a 2000 sq ft house. With
only the outside unit replaced (and not the air handler), the cost was
$1500. It was not SEER 13, but SEER 10, I believe.
Now you may ask why only SEER 10? To get a higher rating, the inside air
handler would have to be replaced as well as all the piping. I think that
cost was going to be around $3000 or so. Since we usually keep the
temperature at 75 to 80, the AC isn't on enough to justify the cost

it. He's an independent and did an admirable job.
My previous heat pump was serviced by Lee. I wasn't too happy with the way
that they handled the last problem, which caused me to have to get a new
