Just had the first quote come back for my heating and AC repairs.
New Furnace(oil, trane), New AC(trane) New plenum, duct work trunk replaced, and new fuel lines ran to oil tank.
Only charging 900 in labor, rest is equipment and parts.
I need to see the quote, my wife is having the people give quotes. We are getting 4 people locally to quote the job. Feeling like they will all be around the same, really the only variable is labor cost, and the mark up on the equipment. So maybe 10% difference between them is what I am expecting. Am I wrong assuming this?
I about had a heart attack. I had sat aside 5000 for it. Now have to dig out another 4000. Argh!
Also it was funny because my wife took the guy out to see where the current AC was sitting, and she said he did a double take, looked at her and said, "was this old dinosaur still working? I haven't put one in like this since I started out in the 70s" She told him it had worked great up until last year when the darn thing died completely and froze up into an iceberg.
