Hey Doug, Iam sure your a legend in your own mind and your brilliance is eclipsed only by the sun. Must be pretty hard for you to put up with us mear mortals.Originally posted by dougfamous
Yeah, that's waaaay too much. I'm sure you can find some guy working out of a station wagon to hack you a system in for a lot cheaper. Then you can pay the original bidder to come back and clean up the mess.
You see, Iam just an HO That doesn't have a clue about HVAC systems or what they cost. I feel that it is my responsability to my self and my family to make the best decisions that I can regarding our wellfare, quality of life , finances etc.
In my experience , if you don't know about something it's a good idea to ask someone who does, so that you don't end up really screwing things up. My post here was not meant to be derrogatory to any one , I was mearly asking the "Experts" what there thoughts on this matter were. As you probably already know ( iam sure you know EVERYTHING) Equipment pricing seems to be a highly gaurded secret, and even though the quality of the install is critical, there are unscrupulus people out there that will take you to the cleaners first chance they get. All I wanted to know was ... Does this sound reasonable for what Iam about to get? If I had been quoted $2,000.00 for the project I would of hoped that someone would have piped in with a " Umm sounds like somethings wrong there, you might want to get another quote " The same if I had been quoted $25,0000.00 for the same thing. Iam not looking to nickle and dime the contractor down, Iam willing to pay for what is reasonable, I just needed to find out what IS reasonable.
