How Much Should a Furnace Cost in the U.S.?
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 budgeting for a new furnace. So when that dreaded day comes, where do you start?
The cost of a new furnace will vary depending on several factors, including the lifestyle and habits of residents in the home. Health issues may also require air filtration systems, which also factors into which furnace is right for you. 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 have to include a whole-home humidifier in your HVAC system.
The next thing to take into consideration is the home itself. How many windows are there and which direction do they face? What type of insulation is currently installed and how efficient is it at trapping air inside? How efficient the ductwork is, the preferred power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home layout can affect which furnace is right for you.
Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing will set-up a complimentary consultation where they will come to your home and assess your current set-up. They will review your options with you and provide you a free estimate on a new furnace installation based on your home’s construction and unique features.
Another factor that will determine the price of your furnace is which contractor you choose to perform the installation. One company may have your desired system at a lower cost, but proceed with caution and verify that they are licensed, bonded, and insured just in case something should happen 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 factors go into determining how much a new heating and air conditioning system will cost, but let’s get down to the nitty gritty. We’ve provided a few estimates on what you can expect to pay depending on the type of home you live in.
