You can find a LOT of previous questions with answers in the Home > HVAC link in Browse Projects at lower left, with some ballpark cost numbers and thoughts on HVAC systems and options and some comments on brands too.


VERY, VERY rough numbers - assuming I understand correctly that you want central heat furnace (assuming forced air type with ducts already in place) plus a new A/C added to that system - less than $5-7,000 (both units combined) you are probably dreaming or going with really cheap brands, around $10,000 likely for run of the mill better quality units, and probably $10,000-15,000 for high efficiency units.


You did not say if you have had the unit looked at - because it is pretty rare that a furnace repair (for a breakdown) runs over $1000 unless it has water or fire damage inside - so since the house is cold in winter conditions, that might be the priority unless it is totally shot, and might give you a few more years out of it. Tough call - because since you are in a bind weather wise, you will have to watch out for scammers trying to tell you that a repairable furnace needs replacement.


One other consideration - since your area is currently around or below freezing 24 hours right now and for another month or two, a new A/C unit could not be properly tested if installed now. So even if you get a new furnace, probably smart to wait on the A/C install for a time when it can be tested, and also not wasting say about 4-5 months of warranty with it sitting unused - best to install a unit when it is going to be used heavily in the next month or less, so you can detect and put in a warranty claim when it is still new.
