    You will need to call an HVAC contractor. They can size your house and do a heat loss calculation. Try to get at least three estimates.

    I found my good old local oil supply company came in with the best price and deal with the regular full service contract. Sometimes your best deals are with your reliable neighbor businesman. (and it helps to be his good customer when you need that emergncy service or delivery in the snow stom!)
  • Listen to William, he is spot on. This is too important to do yourself. Anything with gas, oil, propane and electric should be performed by a professional that knows the building codes for your area. The safety of your family is priceless and every penny spent is worth it.

    I have done HVAC repair and install in the past and will say this. It's really easy to get overwhelmed and too easy to make costly and dangerous mistakes. If you have no previous experience, please get a professional to do it for you. Check for recommendations from your friends and also check at suppliers for whom they trust!

    Check with the Better Business Bureau. They will give you a list of names of reliable companies that install furnace and air conditioners. You can also view their complaints if they have any but they will tell you who the best is

    How about the ductless heating/air conditioners. My neighbor has about the same square footage as you do. She had to buy two units at $2,500 each and this was the installed price. She did her homework and got several estimates.
