How Michael & Son determines your quote
- The feed type. You have two types of disposals to choose from: a continuous feed or a batch feed disposal. The type of disposal you choose will impact your installation cost. Continuous feed disposals are more common and turn on and off with a switch on the wall. Due to their popularity, continuous feed disposals are less expensive to install. Batch feed disposals are considered "safer" to use because they require a stopper lid in order to turn on, but they're typically more expensive.
- The size of the motor. Depending on the size of your garbage disposal's motor, measured in horsepower (HP), your installation costs can vary. The higher the HP of the garbage disposal, the more expensive it will cost to install. Motors with a range in the ⅓ and ½ for HP tend to be best for a household of 1-4 people and will be less expensive to install. However, you pay more for repairs down the line because smaller motors tend to jam more frequently. If you have a large household or know you'll use your garbage disposal a lot, we recommend getting a motor size between ¾ and 1 HP for smoother operation.
- The type of steel used. Most manufacturers make garbage disposals with either stainless steel or galvanized steel. The type of steel you choose will impact your installation costs. Stainless steel disposals are more expensive to install. However, if you use your garbage disposal frequently, stainless steel disposals are a great choice because they are more durable. Galvanized steel garbage disposals are acceptable for most households and are less expensive to install. However, they are more prone to corrosion and rusting, so you might pay more in repair and replacement costs over the disposal's lifetime.
