Dear Fixer: Sometimes you print stories about businesses that are good to their customers. One that I have encountered is SmartShopper USA.
What is the typical cost for a new furnace replacement and addition of central air conditioning?

I need to replace my old furnace and I wanted to add on central air. I was quoted a couple of different amounts and I just want to make sure I wasn’t getting ripped off. I was told I would need a 70,000 BTU and I think that the best quote I was given was $5,000 for everything including installation. Please let me know since this is the first time I have ever had this done!

Adding central air conditioning to an existing forced-air heating system in a 2,000-square-foot house averages $3,500 -$4,000, and can be done by two technicians in 2-3 days, with little or no change to the existing ducting. If ducts must be added, the work time doubles, as does the cost to $7,000 -$8,000 or more.

Estimates for an older, smaller house of 800-1,000 square feet with no existing duct work run $2,100 -$6,000, or as high as $10,000 or more, depending on the type and quality of equipment installed, the amount of space available for installing ducts and vents, and the local economy.
