As a reference point, if you were to do it yourself, it's possible to do it for $2.5k
Haier 3 ton 13 SEER heat pump $1699 (just A/C even cheaper) with 10 years warranty, $300 worth of electrical stuff (may be a little more if you need to add a subpanel) , $30 lineset, $30 thermostat, $10 plumbing for the drain, let's say roughly $500 for flexible ducts & registers.

I decided that when our HVAC croaks, I'll do it myself (famous left handed LBYM engineer thinking :-)
