Why so expensive for the install?

dcipherMay 13, 2011

Just got 2 quotes from 2 different plumbers to install new furnace and hot water tank.

Quote 1: Buderus GB142/45 gas wall hung condensing boiler

Super-Stor SSU 60 indirect water heater

$13,200 installed

Quote 2: Ray condensing cast iron gas FHW boiler

Superstor Ultra 45 Gallon Indirect Water System

$19,065 installed

Huh? Does it really cost this much to install this equipment. It seems like the furnace & hot water tank cost around $6k total. What's the other $$$ for?


Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

equipment cost 1/2 labor and expenses the other 1/2.
costs money in insurances, training, keeping trucks
and installers on the road.

best of luck
