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 purchasing a new furnace. So when that awful day arrives, where do you start?
The value of a new furnace will vary depending on several factors, like the lifestyle and habits of individuals in the home. Health problems may also require air filtration systems, which also factors into which furnace is ideal for your family. Even collections can help determine which furnace is right for your family. Does someone collect art or is someone a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can alter the integrity of these items so you may consider investing in a whole-home humidifier in your heating and cooling system.
Something else to take a look at is your actual home. How many windows are there and which direction do they face? What sort of insulation is currently in the home and how efficient is it at trapping air indoors? How well installed the ductwork is, the chosen power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home design can affect which furnace is right for your home.
Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing will set-up a no-charge consultation where they will come to your home and analyze your current set-up. The technician will go over your options with you and present you a no-charge estimate on a new furnace installation based on their review of your home’s design and unique traits.
Another factor that will affect the price of your furnace is which company you hire to perform the installation. One contractor may have your desired system at a lower cost, but proceed with caution and confirm that they are licensed, bonded, and insured in the event something should take place while they’re on your property. If a contractor who was not insured was injured on your property, you can actually be held liable.
All of these things go into deciding how much a new heating and cooling system will cost, but let’s get down to what you came for. We’ve provided a few estimates on the amount you can expect to pay based on the style of home you live in.
