Nobody looks forward to the day that they have to replace their furnace. Unfortunately, it’s part of life, and the U.S. 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 adjust depending on many factors, such as the lifestyle and customs of people in the home. Health issues may also mean you need air filtration systems, which also helps you decide which furnace is ideal for your home. Even hobbies can factor into which furnace is right for your family. Does anyone 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 heating and air conditioning system.
Something else to take a look at is your actual home. How many windows does your home have and which direction are they facing? What level of insulation is currently installed and how efficient is it at trapping air in your home? How well installed the ductwork is, the chosen power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home blueprint can go into deciding which furnace is right for you.
Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing will set-up a complimentary consultation where they will visit your home and analyze your current set-up. The team will discuss your options with you and provide you a complimentary estimate on a new furnace installation determined by your home’s design and unique characteristics.
Another factor that will affect the price of your furnace is which company you choose to install your system. One contractor may have your desired system at a lower cost, but be mindful and confirm that they are licensed, bonded, and insured just in case something should take place while they’re on your property. You can actually be held liable if a contractor were to get injured on your property if they are not insured.
All of these things go into influencing 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 how much you can expect to pay determined by the style of home you live in.
