If you are in need of a new HVAC system, you may be obtaining quotes from multiple installation companies. This can help you to compare pricing and ultimately, settle on a company to install your new system. One of the mistakes that people make is to select a system based on their quoted price, without really looking over the quote to see what is included and not included in the quote. Here are a few elements that you should ensure are listed on an estimate for HVAC system installation. 

The Exact HVAC Unit You Are Purchasing and Installing

One of the factors that you need to look at when you are receiving estimates for an HVAC installation quote is the exact HVAC unit you are having installed, and whether you are purchasing it yourself or through the company. Different systems need to be installed differently and cost a different amount to purchase. One company may be quoting you the lowest installation costs, while another may be pricing out the costs associated with the unit you are most interested in. Ensure that the exact HVAC unit you plan on purchasing is listed as the unit being purchased and/or installed. 

A Detailed List of Each Task Being Completed

A great estimate will also have a detailed list of each task being completed during the HVAC system installation process, as well as the price for each task. This may include cleaning out the duct work or replacing torn ducts, and any duct work modification that needs to be done. This allows you to ensure your quote includes specific tasks and prevents potential disagreements in the future over what may or may not have been included in the original quote. 

The Cost to Remove and Dispose of the Old System and Parts

The final item that should be listed on a new HVAC system installation is the cost to remove and dispose of your old HVAC unit and any additional parts or components. You want to ensure that they are cleaning up and disposing of the items they remove and that you are not presented with a bill at the completion of the project for disposal fees. 

A great HVAC installation company will include as much information on a quote as possible to help ensure that you are seeing the full picture of what you are being charged for and to help you compare apples to apples when looking at estimates.
