Duct design costs-what are you paying?
I just got a quote for duct design and was a little surprised at the cost given my project is a small one. I’m interested in what others have paid for duct design?
Any recommendations in Canada?

Our firm does HVAC designs for residential construction in Ontario, prices usually range from $500 to $1500, depending on the complexity of the project. I think that's about standard. Be sure not to get your design from the supply houses, the quality of work I've seen from those providers is very low.
Could you send me the contact information? My place is 980sq ft and I was quoted more than the top end figure you mention.
Sure, as long as it's clear I'm not using this site as a billboard. Just trying to provide helpful information. :) You can reach me at our firm at e f o l e y @ n e x i c o m . n e t.
Out of curiosity, were you talking to an engineering firm or an hvac design only firm or...? That seems like a very high fee for a small house. Or maybe you are doing something out of the ordinary or complicated?
Thank you, it was an energy/mechanical engineering firm. I don't believe there is anything complicated about the layout or design at all, quite the opposite.
