Just a detail - An electric dryer is 120/240 volts. It requires both, which is why a 3-conductor w/ground cable is used.

I have a quote for the work from an electrician of $1800 CDN including parts and labour. The work involves fitting an entirely new panel with alot more circuits for the future, a baseboard heater, 2 bathroom extractor fans and fixing up a junction box so its neater. It also includes running the wires to wherever I need them for the washer/dryer. Does this seem a reasonable price?
