It’s a terrible feeling when you know you’re close to having to replace your furnace. Sadly, it’s part of life, and West Chester homeownership, and so is budgeting for a new furnace. So when that scary day arrives, where do you start?
The cost of a new furnace will fluctuate depending on many factors, like the lifestyle and behaviors of people in the home. Health issues may also require air filtration systems, which also helps determine which furnace is right for your home. Even hobbies can factor into which furnace is right for your home. Does anyone collect art or is anyone 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.
Another thing to take into consideration is the home’s design. How many windows does your home have and which direction are they facing? What type of insulation is currently installed and how effective is it at trapping air inside? How new the ductwork is, the favored power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home layout can go into deciding which furnace is best for you.
Wesley Wood Service Experts will set-up a no-charge consultation where they will visit your home and evaluate your current set-up. The team will go over your options with you and give you a no-charge estimate on a new furnace installation based on their review of your home’s structure and unique features.
Another factor that will affect the price of your furnace is which contractor you select to install your system. One business may have your desired system at a lower cost, but be careful and confirm that they are licensed, bonded, and insured just in case something should happen while they’re on your site. In the event a contractor was injured on your property and the contractor was not insured, you can be held liable.
All of these factors go into determining how much a new heating and cooling system will cost, but let’s get down to what you really want to know. Below are a few estimates on the amount you can expect to pay based on the type of home you live in.
