Who defined this senior thesis? You really need to sit with your advisor or professor and explain there are too many variables to consider as pointed out here, and the resulting average, to be blunt, would be meaningless/useless. You need to redefine this these.

All joking aside, I'm sure there are many things you could study about the HVAC industry from a cost perspective that you could get a better handle on and we'd all be interested in reading and find potentially useful.

Hey Dac

Why don't you write the kid a note to take to his professor?

Just kidding. We have been having a litDac fun with
the topic.
Dac
is right. There are too many variables.

Or you could write WHY you cant get an average cost because of those variables.

Diff states have diff overhead. Larger companies can usually buy at
different
prices than smaller establishments.

Stuff like that.

Good Luck Guy.

So Phil...let me get this straight, your thesis program will allow you to take random comments from random individuals through a moderated message board and use a valid statistics for your research? YIKES!

I have to admit that's one of the most creative ways of asking the question of the users here what's the price for "X" since most here don't just toss that info out. Generally speaking there are too many variables for any given installation, to just toss out a number.

I'd suggest that if you're in need of a furnace, you call your local HVAC installer and inquire. If you're planning on doing it yourself...ask away. If your truly doing research for your thesis...then get on the 'net, locate plumbers across the nation and survey them.

Good luck with your "thesis"....I would of sworn UGA had higher standards....

This information would be like totaling up everyones social security numbers and then find the average.

This would be some really useful information.

Indeed! At this rate he must be going for a Doctorate....couldn't be a B.S. Or could it?

I really hate the fact that he thinks a clever crafting of a question will get him what he wants. Either way, homework or home work, he should get off his @$$ and do the research like the rest of us would have to.

Thank you all for your responses. I do not plan to use your answers by themselves as my research. Before posting, I made a number of calls but hoped to be able to get some other estimates to expand my results, and hopefully get more insight from all of you. RippySkippy, thank you for your "carefully crafted" response. Congratulations, you uncovered the fact that I asking essentially the same question about hot water heaters. If you go to the introduction board though, you will see that I directed people to both posts, and introduced the research I was doing.

I still welcome any figures you all can throw my way, despite the problems with the question I am asking.

Dude we've been trying to be considerate. But Skippy said in plain language what we have been delicately trying to get across to you:

You want a price on a furnace just call a local guy.

Nobody is buying this college project BS. I was a part time instructor at a local college and no professor I know would accept your research as scientifically
Valid.

JEEZE!
