Absurd Minotair ERV quote
I received a quote of 17k to install the Minotair Pentacare V-12 in my 1600sq ft plus 1k sq ft of unfinished but insulated basement. Would be a retrofit for a 1915 bungalow outside of Boston. There would be some demo of drywall to get up to the 2nd floor for 2 bedrooms but would only be 2 supply ducts. The rest of the runs would be pretty easy in unfinished basements. I was looking at the Minotair giving its dehumidifying properties ( to help our ductless mini splits), ability to provide a small amount of heating/cooling (one very small bedroom without a head and basement), remove radon ( averaging 4pci/l over 6 months) and carbon filter with merv15 filtering (neighbors use wood as primary heating). I thought the quote would come in around 8k given that it’s been reported on this site that the unit costs approximately $6.5k. I keep trying to call the company but no one is picking up. Only one company is chosen in an area to be an installer in an area. Any thoughts? Zehnder quote I received was 8-9k not installed.
