How Michael & Son determines your quote
- The feed type. The type of garbage disposal you choose (continuous or batch feed) will impact your installation cost. Continuous feed garbage disposals are turned on and off with a switch on the wall and are commonly used in Charlottesville. Due to their popularity, continuous feed disposals are less expensive to install. Batch feed disposals are typically more expensive but are considered "safer" to use because they require a stopper lid in order to turn on.
- 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. The type of steel you choose will impact your installation costs. Most manufacturers make garbage disposals with either stainless steel or galvanized steel. Stainless steel disposals are more expensive to install but are often more durable. Galvanized steel garbage disposals are adequate for most Charlottesville households and are less expensive to install. But keep in mind, they are more prone to corrosion and rusting which could cost you more in repairs over time.
