hole cut through hardwood floor...

we just bought a 1950's california home and the previous owner cut holes straight through the hardwood and sub flooring to accommodate an old heating unit. what would it take to repair it and what is a reasonable estimate to have a professional do it? thanks.

The easiest would be to drill the holes out to the next dowel size and glue in dowel pieces of the same wood species. If done properly, it wil barely be noticeable.

they are fairly large holes roughly 6 inch by 8 inch rectangles.
