I am looking at purchasing a new gas furnace myself and having a contractor install it INSTEAD of going through them to purchase and install. Is there an estimate on how much install ONLY would be? I see quotes on sites of $1400 - $2800, but it seems that may include the cost of a cheap furnce as well.

I know there are other factors to consider like where it will be located, if any duct work will need to be relocated and such. Let's just say it will sit in the same spot as the old furnace.

Any ideas on just install cost alone?

I know the morals of buying something from a local shop with good recognition and service and paying more for that. I also know that if I can find a product somewhere else (happens to be a new furnace from an individual) for maybe eve thousands less, I probably won't pass that up. If the well regarded dealer doesn't want to have one of their installers install the furnace because I didn't buy it from them, I guess that's their loss in labor costs.

I'm not trying to stiff anyone from a little profit just to give them an "up-yours". I may have a chance to save, honestly, a couple grand on a top-of-the-line furnace. I just want to see what a installer, from a NON-shady establishment, may charge for basic install. If they up the price a bit because I didn't buy it from them, then that's what they'll do.
