It’s a terrible feeling when you know you’re close to having to replace your furnace. But alas, it’s part of life, and the U.S. homeownership, and so is budgeting for a new furnace. So when that awful day comes, where do you start?
The price of a new furnace will vary depending on many factors, like the lifestyle and behaviors of individuals in the home. Health issues may also result in air filtration systems, which also factors into which furnace is best for your family. Even collections can help determine which furnace is right for your home. Does anyone collect art or are you a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can affect the integrity of these items so you may have to include a whole-home humidifier in your HVAC system.
Something else to take into consideration is the home itself. What is the window count in the home and which direction do the windows face? What sort of insulation is currently in the home and how effective is it at trapping air in your home? How well installed the ductwork is, the favored power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home layout can help determine which furnace is right for your home.
Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing will set-up a complimentary consultation where they will visit your home and analyze your current set-up. They will go over your options with you and provide you a no-charge estimate on a new furnace installation based on your home’s design and unique features.
The next thing that will go into determining the price of your furnace is which business you choose to complete the install. One contractor may have the equipment you want at a lower cost, but proceed with caution and verify that they are licensed, bonded, and insured in the event something should take place while they’re on your premises. If a contractor who was not insured was injured on your property, you can actually be held liable.
All of these things go into determining how much a new heating and air conditioning system will cost, but let’s get down to the nitty gritty. We’ve provided a few estimates on the amount you can expect to pay depending on the sort of home you live in.
