Yikes - GasPak/Install Prices Doubled?!
I need to replace my gas pak. In 2005 I had a new HVAC system installed (in the same size house in a slightly more expensive area than where I am now) -- new gas pak, new ducting, they removed the old gas furnace, etc -- for $5900. A few months earlier my neighbor replaced her gas pak (same model) for $2900. Now I'm being told by at least two different contractors that it will cost me around $6000 to replace my gas pak. Have prices really doubled in six years, or are they padding the bill because of the energy rebate? What should I do?
