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 helps determine which furnace is best for you. Even collections can help you decide which furnace is right for your family. Do you collect art or are you a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can affect the integrity of these products so you may consider investing in 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 well installed the ductwork is, the preferred power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home design can affect which furnace is right for your home.

Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning will set-up a complimentary 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 complimentary estimate on a new furnace installation determined by your home’s design and unique traits.

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 verify that they are licensed, bonded, and insured just in case something should occur while they’re on your site. You can actually be held liable if a contractor were to get injured on your property if they are not insured.
