Price for the construction of a Canadian well

There are several things to consider in estimating the cost of installing a Canadian well. First, there is earthworks and digging to prepare the ground for receiving the various elements of piping. For this, it is necessary to 1,000 and 5,000 euros depending on the type of soil and the difficulty of access to the land.

Then, consider the selected controlled mechanical ventilation model (VMC). If it is a VMC simple stream, the price oscillates between 350 and 650 euros approximately.

In the case of a VMC double flow, the price is higher: of the order of 750 to 2,800 euros on average.

The price of a VMC depends of course on the size of the house, the quality of the ventilation / VMC and its features (self-adjustable or humidity-controlled).

It must not be forgotten the different fittings which will cost around a hundred euros.
