Estimating Your Heating and AC Project with Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning
The first item required for most of our clients is the estimated cost of completion. We are happy to provide you with a free estimate for our customers, but to do this accurately, we do need some information on the scope of the job.
Preparing for Your Estimate
To help ensure we have all the data necessary to give you the best value for your dollar, here are some items that you can gather before submitting your project to us for an estimate. The more information we have, the closer we can come to giving you the exact cost of the project you need completed.
With just these three criteria:
- Blueprints of the building
- Specifications of Equipment
- Scope of Work
Blueprints of the Building
Knowing the layout and structure of the building is important to composing an estimate for your project. To understand what we will be working with, the blueprints should show:
- All floors including the basement
- Elevations that show the wall heights
- Site plan that shows which direction the building is facing
- Electrical plan to determine fan locations
If plans are not available a site visit may be required.
Use and Comfort Level
We understand that houses and renovations come in all levels of budget and personal needs. To help you stay within your budget, and meet your customer’s needs, we have a large variety of equipment available. A basic description of your budget and special requirements (allergies, humidity, etc.) will help the selection process.
If we are replacing equipment, the specifications of what is existing is of great value. The model number of the current furnace (usually found on the inside of the cabinet) and the air conditioner (usually found on one of the outside corners) will be of help. Please include any other accessories that are attached to system (E.G. Humidifier, thermostat, air cleaner).
Scope of Work
To help us understand what will be required for installation, please provide a detailed outline of the scope of work you need us to provide. To help us visualize, photographs of the general area are greatly appreciated if you can include them.
By providing us with as much detail as possible, we can in turn provide you with an accurate estimate for your HVAC installation project.
