So the HVAC company I selected to do a complete system install said I'd save several hundreds of dollars to hire my own electrician (or their recommended ones) to install the new 30a 230volt circuit to outdoor disconnect. The new xl14i will sit within 10 feet of the outdoor electrical meter -- seems to be an extraordinarily simple piece of work with short conduit run. Location is SE VA.

How much should I expect to pay (if I get good work at a fair price)?
