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 dreaded day arrives, where do you start?
The value of a new furnace will vary depending on many factors, including the lifestyle and behaviors of people in the home. Health ailments may also mean you need air filtration systems, which also factors into which furnace is best for your family. Even hobbies can help determine which furnace is right for your family. Do you collect art or is someone a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can affect the integrity of these items so you may consider investing in a whole-home humidifier in your HVAC system.
The next thing to take into consideration is your actual home. What is the window count in the home and which direction do the windows face? What sort of insulation is currently installed and how effective is it at trapping air inside? How well installed the ductwork is, the favored power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home layout can help determine which furnace is best for your home.
Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing will set-up a no-charge consultation where they will visit your home and analyze your current set-up. They will go over your options with you and give you a free estimate on a new furnace installation based on their review of your home’s design and unique characteristics.
Another factor that will determine the price of your furnace is which contractor you choose to complete the install. One contractor may have the equipment you want at a lower cost, but be mindful and make sure that they are licensed, bonded, and insured just in case something should occur while they’re on your site. If a contractor who was not insured was injured on your property, you can actually be held liable.
All of these pieces go into determining how much a new HVAC system will cost, but let’s get down to what you came for. We’ve provided a few estimates on how much you can expect to pay based on the type of home you live in.
