A/C Unit help - RE: cost
I have no idea about air conditioning so I come to the all knowing OT for help.

What should the cost be for a mini split a/c unit to cool a pool house of 350 square feet. I’m talking about all in - new unit, equipment, installation labor, etc. I was quoted a price close to $6,000 today. Is that in the ball park?

That's way out of line I own a Hvac business here in Arkansas and we install a unit that size for around 2500 to 3000 all the time.

You can buy a mini split kit and install it yourself. Probably 1/3 or less of that price.

If it is only 350 sq ft, buy a 5000 or 6000 BTU window unit for a couple hundred dollars, plug it in, and turn it on.

I know a window unit is cheap but I do not want to go that route.

ETA: thanks for the advice. Looks like the estimate was a little high. I will call around tomorrow and get a few more bids.

A 12,000 btu mini split would be around $1500 w/ taxes. Material a few hundred tops. Labor two men 1 day would be less then $700. Rest mark up. $3knspunds about right

You need to call the guys we use. Two brothers who work for a large company but do work on the side. They have saved us lots of money. Very good guys with great personalities. Call and get a quote from them before you buy from large AC company.

This dude is over thinking. Spend $300 on window unit and take difference you were going to spend and save for your kids education.

re: A/C Unit help - RE: cost
Problem is you have a pool house. They know you aren’t poor. They quoted you high hoping to make a ridiculous commission.

As said it should be under $3,000.

Btw prepare for some serious Bs on why it is high like the electrician has to run the power across your yard and that’s $3,000 type of BS.
