How Much Should a Furnace Cost in North America?

September 24, 2016

It’s a terrible feeling when you know you’re close to having to replace your furnace. Sadly, it’s part of life, and North America homeownership, and so is budgeting for a new furnace. So when that awful day finds you, where do you start?

The value of a new furnace will adjust depending on many factors, like the lifestyle and habits of individuals in the home. Health problems may also require air filtration systems, which also factors into which furnace is right for your home. Even hobbies can help you decide which furnace is right for you. Do you collect art or is someone a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can impact the integrity of these products so you may have to include a whole-home humidifier in your heating and air conditioning system.

Something else to consider is the home’s design. How many windows does your home have and which direction are they facing? What sort of insulation is currently in the home and how effective is it at trapping air indoors? How efficient the ductwork is, the preferred power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home design can help determine which furnace is right for you.

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 provide you a free estimate on a new furnace installation determined by your home’s design and unique features.

The next thing that will determine the price of your furnace is which contractor you choose to complete the install. One company may have your desired system at a lower cost, but proceed with caution and make sure that they are licensed, bonded, and insured in the event 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.
