Nobody looks forward to the day that they have to replace their furnace. Sadly, it’s part of life, and Waldorf homeownership, and so is investing in a new furnace. So when that scary day arrives, where do you start?
The cost of a new furnace will vary depending on many factors, like the lifestyle and habits of people in the home. Health issues may also mean you need air filtration systems, which also helps determine which furnace is right for your family. Even interests can factor into which furnace is right for you. Does anyone collect art or are you a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can impact the integrity of these things so you may think about purchasing a whole-home humidifier in your heating and air conditioning system.
Another thing to take into consideration is the home itself. How many windows does your home have and which direction are they facing? What type of insulation is currently installed and how well does it trap air indoors? How well installed the ductwork is, the chosen power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home layout can affect which furnace is right for your family.
A-PLUS Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning will set-up a free consultation where they will visit your home and assess your current set-up. The technician will review your options with you and present you a no-charge estimate on a new furnace installation determined by your home’s design and unique features.
Something else that will determine the price of your furnace is which contractor you choose to complete the install. One contractor may have the system you want at a lower cost, but proceed with caution and make sure that they are licensed, bonded, and insured just in case something should happen while they’re on your premises. If a contractor who was not insured was injured on your property, you can actually be held liable.
