It is more than the going rate here, but Chicago's prices could be that much more. It is almost immaterial if all the contractors charge about the same price in your area. The time to price check would be before it is installed, not after.

: Location is Chicago suburbs. Bradford White 40 gal, 6-year warantee, new style safety system to prevent combustion of external vapors. They quoted $822 full install and removal (haul away) of old unit. They told me that the new style required is the reason for the high price. This sounds like a marketing course graduate to me. I agreed because I've not got the time to shop around and the family will get very ornery with no hot water. I just feel like this is way over the top, price-wise. Am I just out of touch?
