just had a quote for a heatpump and it came to $3200 (before applying the $500 gov subsidy) fully installed.
However, looking online I can find an identical model for $1500 (from a bricks and mortar retailer). which implies the cost of installation quoted to me is $1700.
It should be a pretty simple install - exterior wall, weatherboard house, timber frame, the usual. $1700 for installation sounds absolutely vast to me.
Any idea how much I should be paying? other research suggests around $800 for a 'normal' install.
So I feel like I should be paying $1500+$800-$500(subsidy) = $1800
Anybody got any real world costs to compare? (btw, I'm in auckland if that matters)
