Beware quoting prices to clients for new HVAC systems. In the last month I have heard about two cases of extravagant pricing around here.
$7000.00 to replace part of a 3.5 ton A/C system, I did not get the whole story but some part was not replaced, I think it was the gas furnace section.
A client yesterday is a HVAC contractor, he just replaced a system where the other quote was $10,000.00 for a 4 ton unit. He did it for much less and was laughing at the other company. Duct work was not part of the quote, just a simple replacement with about $2500 worth of materials.
This does not make me laugh, something should be done to protect these unsavvy consumers.
