5everything I needed, and then some
By JeffEd
As many HVAC estimators apparently know, this book has cost data for just about every mechanical system you can imagine. While the book would be overkill for most folks, those who are considering significant home remodeling projects may find it worthwhile as a way to fairly evaluate bids. A certain amount of time and knowledge is required to figure out how to use the book, but once you do it's a goldmine. As an example, I used it a week ago to verify a $65,000 quote for a big renovation job a coworker's friend was considering and found out that the heat pump piping was ten times too high - $20,000 versus $2,000! It breaks out materials, labor and profit/overhead so you know exactly what you are getting into. Money well spent, especially if you get last year's edition... so the costs are a little lower - it's a good spot to start bargaining with contractors!
