What's a reasonable price for a New construction Geo Heat Pump
I understand there are quite a few variables but with the extreme variability in quotes and the large numbers associated with them its hard to tell what is reasonable.
I've read other threads, and some folks get very upset if you question how much is enough....so I don't plan on asking that question.
But what I would like to know is if there is guideline (similar to like $100 per sq. ft. to build a new home). Obviously that $100 a sq. ft is just a baseline and you could be slightly under or way over depending on the complexity of the home, location, etc.
I've heard numbers like 18-30k for new construction geothermal for a standard 2500 sq. ft. home but my quotes are way higher than that (39k and 46k). Even standard Heat Pumps (non Geo) are on the high end of that 18-30k quote (24k and 28k).
I don't consider my home elaborate and it seems pretty straightforward at 3000 sq. ft ranch with a 2500 sq. ft. below grade basement.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
