My compressor just failed.

I just need it to be replaced. The current one is a Carrier 12 SEER 3-ton.
It's not DIY for me.

I have two contractors scheduled, and of course I don't want to get ripped off.

It cost me $4,200 to replace the outside compressor. The air conditioning contractor had to also replace the refrigeration coils in the air handler and the piping since they were incompatible with the newer type refrigerants.

I had to replace my entire central a/c system in 2015. I paid $6475 for a new Lennox 14ACXS-036-230A 3-ton 16.0 SEER system. That included new compressor, new 3.5 ton CBX27UH-042-230 air handler, new refrigerant lines, new filter grill, new wi-fi thermostat, etc. Very efficient system, uses about 40% - 50% less electricity than my previous Trane XL1200 system, which was 27 years old when it finally gave out in 2015. My July, 2019 electric bill was $182.11. FYI my home is an 1118 square foot ranch house.

These things cost like $1-2k with installation it shouldn't be more than $2.5k with existing piping. I had one installed for $2700 with just a few pipe replacement.
