Q: How much will it cost?
A: There is no easy answer to this question, but it all depends on your design, size of house, space constraints, and your dreams!
One rule of thumb that has helped many people is to allow 20% of total construction costs for mechanical. After all the mechanicals are not separate from the house, they are part of it, as the house is a system!
“It is unwise to pay too much, but it is worse to pay too little. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing you bought it to do”
John Ruskin (1819-1900),Author and Scientist, Oxford University

Questions you might have:
Q: Won't the building code ensure my heating system works right?
A: Not necessarily. The building code really is just a bare minimum, and will ensure that you do have some heat in each exterior wall room, that enough BTU's are being put into the house to keep the house average temperature at 20C on the coldest days, etc. However it is not designed to ensure you get the most efficient system, or that the heat distribution is even, or if the system will be too noisy.
We need minimum standards, but if something is "built to code", that may just mean it is the worst building you can legally build. Code inspectors hands are kind of tied beyond that.
Involve us in the design process, or call us in later. Either way we can help you design a system to fit your budget and designed to work.
A new build can be so exciting! So many dreams, so many options!
Sometimes the mechanical systems can be forgotten, however just like a wall or window in the wrong place, a poorly designed mechanical system could frustrate and cost additional money to you or your clients for years!
