It’s never fun thinking about having to replace your furnace. Sadly, it’s part of life, and Elkhart homeownership, and so is investing in a new furnace. So when that dreaded day comes, where do you start?
The value of a new furnace will vary depending on multiple factors, including the lifestyle and customs of individuals in the home. Health issues may also mean you need air filtration systems, which also helps determine which furnace is ideal for you. Even collections can factor into which furnace is right for you. Does anyone collect art or is anyone a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can impact the integrity of these products so you may consider investing in 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 level of insulation is currently in the home and how effective is it at trapping air indoors? How new the ductwork is, the favored power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home layout can go into deciding which furnace is right for your home.

They will go over your options with you and present you a free estimate on a new furnace installation based on your home’s construction and unique characteristics.
The next thing that will affect the price of your furnace is which contractor you choose to complete the install. One business may have the equipment you want at a lower cost, but be careful and verify that they are licensed, bonded, and insured given something should happen while they’re on your property. In the event a contractor was injured on your property and the contractor was not insured, you can be held liable.
