Default A/C recommnedations?

I am in the process of purchasing a vacation condo in Southern Florida which needs a new air conditioner. Current unit is 24 years old, so not much sense in repairing. The condo is 1000 sq feet and won't be inhabited most of the year, so I don't want to spend too much money, but do want a reliable unit.
One heat/cooling company suggested a Comfortmaker 13 seer for $3500 does this seem like a good fit? Would anyone recommend something different?

There is not that much difference in the equipment. You want to check out you contractors so you know you will get a good install. If you don't use it full time then 13 seer should do a good job. Sounds like the price is in line. Paul

I agree side by side there is not much difference. Personally I prefer Amana air conditioning systems but having a good contractor is probably the most important choice as compared to the brand of AC
