    Default Ducted air conditioning...

    We just got a quote for ducted air conditioning in our house.

    It came to $13,800 all fitted and installed.. It was for 5 outlets, 4 temp controllers for each of the rooms/areas and a 12kw inverter thingy.

    If anyone else has ducting, do you remember the rough cost?

    Does the quote we received seem fair?

    Anything I should consider upon agreeing or getting ducting?

    Thanks

    Wow that is alot more than we paid for ours! We are in regional WA and we installed last year a 14.5kw Mitsubishi ducted system. 11 outlets, 8 zones installed for $12 500. We got told Mitsubishi was the best over Fujitsu and Daikin as they were the only company left making them in Japan. The rest were getting made in China or Thailand. We have one LCD panel next to the control panel that does the whole house. We were also told it would be very expensive to run if you do not have insulation in the house. It is good but doubles our power bills in winter. (We are not on natural gas so have no other heating option) I have loved it this summer but am strict when using it. We do not have it on at night (only pedestal fans) and try very hard to leave it off until lunchtime (and it has been stinking hot here).

    I would ceartinly be shopping around.

    I paid $11000 for 11 out let's 4 zones and it's an inverter.
    They say $1000 an outlet is a rough guess
