What the...do you even work bro?
Man you are always thinking and dealing!! We should all just have you come and negotiate deals for our next home improvements like that!!Well there she is. All communicating. Called a local HVAC guy off the Goodman dealer site to finish brazing the lindset, pull a vacuum, release the charge and top it off. $450 cash. He should be here tomorrow or Thursday.
In the end when adding in the +$100 in supplies from lowes, and subtracting a $300 federal credit and $400 local energy coop credit, the total out of pocket cost is $3,815. Since I got a payout from the home warranty company it's actually $2,615. Way better than the 7-8k a HVAC company would have charged me to install a 16 seer dual stage, variable speed communicating unit.
I'm going to hold off on getting rid of the old units. I need to pick up about a ton and a half of sand for a pool install and the scrap guy down the road has a dump trailer. Borrow the trailer for a few hours and bring it back with some valuable scrap. .
