To me, $1200 seems a bit high for a 10 year old unit that is only going to give you another few years.
Most of the numbers you gave do not help me.  I have no idea what kind of heat, nor do I have any idea what your home's heating/cooling requirements are.  I do not know if this size unit will work for you.
The unit likely uses R-22.  R-22 is the refrigerant in the system and it is being phased out.  The cost of it is getting very expensive right now.

I have been in the HVAC field for the past 18 years. I can help with most HVAC questions. I work on commerical buildings for the most part, and have yet to find anything I could not troubleshoot and repair, when repairable. I work on small 1 ton units to a 2500 ton chiller. Troubleshoot air flow, elect, and control problems. I attend regular classes to keep up with the latest and greatest.


I work on commerical sites, hospitals, gov't buildings. I can troubleshoot just about anything in the HVAC business.

5 years trade school, VFD training classes, Liebert factory training, some York and Trane factory training.
