Radiant Heat Systems We Trust
Selling Price of An HVAC Project
Every consumer out there has some great experiences in our world of commerce, and some horrible ones as well. Because this whole topic must remain somewhat hypothetical, how often does someone buy a product or service when he or she knows it won't work? Or that it won't last? What a ridiculous question! If we all had a crystal ball, wow, things would be different!
People that hire Plumbing, Heating and Cooling companies to perform work in their home or business rarely do it "just because". No, usually there's a need, a desire for something or a pain that needs to be eliminated.
One major temptation for Pioneer Valley homeowners would be to hire a
contractor who's recommending a larger system at the same, or even less
cost. Our little voices inside say, "bigger is better" and we sign the
agreement that gives us the most bang for the buck. However, did you
just get the best job? The guy who's going to install the lager system;
are you sure that the system wont be merely shoved into position and
turned on? Actually, because there's a little more energy capability in
the bigger unit, the cheaper contractor now has the ability to cut some
corners. Does this make any sense? Although the unscrupulous contractor
may spend an extra $300 or $400 in equipment, he just may sail through
the installation, saving terrifically more than $300 or $400 he
"overspent" making it up in labor.
Or, should you spend more for the quality contractor who's recommending
a full ton (12,000 BTUs) smaller in system capacity? This quality guy will spend $300
or $400 less for the appliances, but will need to spend perhaps an extra
half day (on a small job) to several days (on a large job) making all
the connections work in a streamlined manor. He'll spend much more time
setting up refrigeration charge, setting fan speeds, and checking out
and dialing in combustion with sophisticated combustion analysis tools.
