What does an air exchanger cost?

These days homeowners have two main concerns when it comes to the HVAC systems in their home. They are concerned about air quality and also about mold and humidity. Today's homes are sealed up very tight so it is critical to get a frequent exchange of air to prevent mold within the ceiling and walls and to prevent germs from remaining in the sale air of a sealed home that does not exchange air. But how much does an air exchanger cost? How much money can you expect to pay for an air exchanger? When planning to add one of these units to your home the air exchanger cost should be assumed to be between $2000 and $3000 depending on the size of your home. There are other costs that could cause the price to increase such as higher labor costs, high permit fees etc. However what is the cost to not having an air exchanger? Mold remediation can cost $10,000 or more so if you have a modern house with house wrap under the siding be sure to install an air exchange to keep fresh air in and stale air pushed out.
