The furnace will be directly under the supply and return duct work. The two lines will only be about 3 feet long and feed straight up into there respective sides. The stove pipe will be about six feet long and travel along the side of a stone wall and turn 90 into the chimney opening. The stove will be in place and assembled. The lines for the coal trol are run and the control panel is installed in the room i want it. The installer will need to set the draft and get the coal trol set up properly. I also have the optional cold air return box that he can tap directly into with the return line. The price quoted was $1250. I am sure I could do the work myself, however I am new to coal and want to make sure things are as they should be, and most importantly safe. I am more than happy to pay the price if it is fair, just looking for some input.
It would be hard to say will the installer also be moving and setting the furnace. To me it doesn't sound too far out there as long as it is a professional job and complete. If you are in doubt is there another HVAC company you can get a quote from?
Again I would have to know exactly what the scope is they are promising for a reasonable opinion. There is usually more to do than obviously appears.
