    Hello,
    I Wanted To Know How To Determine The Cost To Install (3) Ductless System Using The Inverter Technology? I've Been Going To Some Classes On Ductless A/C And Heat Pump Systems But I Never Installed One And I Have A Job Coming Up That I Would Like To Bid On And I Want To Make Sure I Don't Over Bid Or Under.
    Thanks!

    Eric, you may not want to figure much of a profit on your first install.

    If you've never even 'helped' anyone install a ductless, it's gonna take a bit more time.

    Once you do a few, it goes much faster.

    There's many tips and tricks, many of which I learned recently, and I've been installing these for over 10 years.

    feel free to ask some questions if you have any

    Eric,
    Are the systems your installing 1 to 1 or 3 indoor heads with 1 outdoor? Will the line voltage be ran for you or will you be running power yourself? Is this a single story or a two story home? This might help a little bit with your question.

    Eric,
    I find the biggest cost that is hard to quantify is the labor involved in trying to hide the lineset/communication-power line to make it aesthetically pleasing.  This is really time consuming, hard to control and can add to the job labor cost pretty quickly.  We use on average 4 hours to install the outdoor unit and 4 hours per indoor head.  The linehide application is where we struggle to control.

    Thank You

    What brand of line hide? The Fortress brand is time consuming to say the least. We use that brand through Rectorseal I believe, Slim Duct, it's a bit more costly but it installed much faster. 

    Installing the line hide should not be a pain,
