It’s a terrible feeling when you know you’re close to having to replace your furnace. Unfortunately, it’s part of life, and the U.S. homeownership, and so is purchasing a new furnace. So when that awful day comes, where do you start?
The value of a new furnace will fluctuate depending on multiple factors, such as the lifestyle and customs of people in the home. Health issues may also require air filtration systems, which also factors into which furnace is right for your home. Even hobbies can help determine which furnace is right for your family. Does anyone collect art or is someone a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can alter the integrity of these products so you may consider investing in a whole-home humidifier in your heating and air conditioning system.
The next thing to take a look at is the home itself. What is the window count in the home and which direction do the windows face? What sort of insulation is currently in the home and how effective is it at trapping air inside? How new the ductwork is, the chosen power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home design can affect which furnace is best for you.
Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing will set-up a free consultation where they will visit 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 determined by your home’s construction and unique characteristics.
Something else that will go into determining the price of your furnace is which contractor you select to complete the install. One contractor may have the system you want at a lower cost, but proceed with caution and verify that they are licensed, bonded, and insured given 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 things 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 based on the type of home you live in.
