New construction - cost difference between single and dual zone HVAC

Hi, we are building a 2200sf ranch home with 1000sf finished in the basement (office, bedroom, rec room) in southwest Ohio. Our builder has specified a "95% Gas Furnace - 1 Zone, 13 SEER Heat Pump AC", with the comment, "Complete HVAC System shall be sized by a mechanical engineer". Because I work from home full-time, and my office will be in the basement, I have asked to have a dual zone system instead. I'm told this is around $3200 extra. Does this seem reasonable? Thanks!
