Average Costs of an Outdoor Misting System
There is no doubt that in warmer areas, adding a misting system to any outdoor space can make the area more appealing. However, price is a big factor that you will need to take into consideration. The price of the materials, including the compressor, the pipes and any spray heads, is only part of the equation. Along with labor costs, which can be significant, expect to pay about $2,541 to have an outdoor misting system professionally installed on your property.
How Location Affects Total Price
Where you choose to install the outdoor misting system plays a big role in how much it will cost. Having an unusual shape may require custom pipes to be made for the project, or high ceilings for a covered outdoor space could require additional compressors to create enough pressure at these heights. Before you get a quote from a professional installation team, ensure that they have seen your property or at least an accurate photo of the space.
Tackling This as a DIY Project
Since this job is so labor-intensive, many homeowners decide that the best way to save money is to tackle it as a DIY project. In a relatively small setup, this is not a bad idea, but you should be prepared for a lot of time and effort in order to get to the misting system finished. Also, the most difficult aspect for homeowners will be hiding the pipes and making the area look finished. If you want to install fans or any other additions to the misting system, it may be best to leave it to the professionals.
