I really think I am being ripped off...
You may remember my many posts about this njcleanenergy (.com) program where by acieving 20-25% more efficiency you can get 4000 or 5000 in rebates. You MUST get air sealing done in attic and basement as needed. Because the house will be so tight the water heaters need to be power vented or tankless. It seems like a good deal, BUT one contractor seems to be overcharging for the sealing, the other for the hvac and the other for everything! This is what is listed on one of my quotes. Keeping in mind that this in NJ the price for JUST THESE ITEMS is 11,888. How overpriced is that? (or isn't it?) It's not even the heat pump! That is 14,334 before the 650 Carrier rebate that is about to expire. I have existing PVC chimney from current furnace that will be used. It goes out the roof. Not sure how much they should be discounting for that. I know they have to recover their paperwork costs, which might be a lot, but I beleive they are upcharging me because I am getting the rebate. Mark it up to mark it down........I would like to see comparable quotes without the program...
