approximate cost of new HVAC (electric heat pump/AC) for condominum in Sacramento, CA

I own a condominium built in 1982. The condo is a ground floor unit, approx. 1100 square feet. The system that came with the condo is a GE Weathertron electric heat pump/AC unit,. which is no longer manufactured. For budgetary purposes and for the Condo Homeowners Association, I am looking for approximate costs to replace the unit. At the present time, I have selected an Angie's List provider to service the unit.

The size requied, efficiency, and features you choose will determine the cost.

Here in Florida that could be from $3000 to $6500 , for the most part.

Consider a high SEER and HSPF system, to lower your operating cost and protect against rising electric costs.

Consider variable speed indoor fan as well as compressor, like the Carrier Greenspeed Heat Pump.Tis has indoor humidity control and will provide low cost operation and fantastic indoor comfort.

If the duct system size will allow, look at better filters or a Carrier Infinity Air Purifier, to protect the indoor coil and improve your Indoor Air Quality.

Other brands have sytem that will come close.

Well, once we take into consideration the Square Footage of the structure, the Elevation(orientation) of the structure, the Square Footage of the Windows(per wall), the Insulation Value of the structure, the Number of Occupants, etc., etc., etc...., we then input all this information into a computer program(ACCA manual J) and come up with a Heat Load of the Building, then we input that information into another program(ACCA manual S) that advises us what equipment would be most appropriate for that Heat Load, then onto another program(ACCA manual D) to advise us of the Duct Sizing each room will need to be Comfortable and then to an additional program(ACCA manual T) to tell us which Grills and Registers to install for Optimal Airflow....

Then add on the Costs for Permits, Title 24 testing, other Regulatory agencies...

Approximate Cost to Install...Depends...
