Depends a lot on your house configuration and layout and if central air or distributed air conditioning system and if forced air or hot water/steam heat, but you can find some ballpark numbers in the Home > HVAC link in Browse Projects, at lower left. Offhand, I would guess you are talking in $5-7000 minimum for normal contractor-grade equipment basically replacing exactly what you have with vdery similar sized units, on up to the $10,000 plus range as you get into the high efficiency units. If you are getting totally new units across the board, you might consider getting an energy audit to determine if putting a bit of money into weatherproofing or insulation might cut your system capacity (size) down - commonly, on older homes, a couple thousand in insulation and weatherstipping can save quite a few thousand in HVAC system size, plus the annual savings in energy cost of course. Then, after improving that factor, a totally new calculation of energy demand and unit sizing and such would be needed - do NOT just go with the same size units you had before.
