Carrier is a fine brand the parent company ICP did have issues a few years ago with leaking evap coils however that has been fixed.
In ac installing it all comes down to the installers. Kinda like a Hybrid car. American Standard is a cheaper unit for contractors than Carrier also so this could have a impact on the price. Basically what you are saying is: I got a estimate for a BMW hybrid and im comparing it to my parents new Chevy cobalt.

Thanks for those that actually try to help. Funny how there are so many nay sayers out there. Leave it to the "Pros" and let them "calculate" the amount of freon needed.
They recharge until the gauges are in the "normal" range, then they are done. The only question I have is the "fitting" between the cooper pipes and the unit. Flared or brazed, how hard can it be. I think I can handle replacing my AC unit. I thank those who actually tried to help.
Dont know, but you do have the right voltage for the unit there so its not a motor that you smell. The smell may be is from the damp coil just after the compressor shuts off.

I would look at this as a major project to assure proper insulation and circulation as well as properly sizing the ac system. Seems like a lot considering the base cost of units. Are you replacing the air handler also. Ask for a complete break down inspection of the unit. I would be a little curious how good of an organization you are dealing with based off of a price like that.
Perhaps experiencing a "brown out" with supply voltages. The sad thing about newer units is that simplicity is gone.
Rob I just sent you a message. I could also get a Rough estimate from him. I would just worry that if we purchased a unit from the website for one of our flips and then had someone else install it, if there was a problem, would the installer try to blame the manufacturer and vice versa.
These were replacements not new installs requiring duct work or new line sets ect. I think I got a pretty good deal.
