How Much Should a Furnace Cost in Rochester?

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 Rochester homeownership, and so is purchasing a new furnace. So when that scary day arrives, where do you start?

The value of a new furnace will fluctuate depending on multiple factors, such as the lifestyle and behaviors of residents in the home. Health problems may also result in air filtration systems, which also helps determine which furnace is right for your home. Even interests can help determine which furnace is right for you. Does anyone collect art or are you a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can alter the integrity of these products so you may think about purchasing a whole-home humidifier in your HVAC system.

Something else to take a look at is the home’s design. How many windows does your home have and which direction are they facing? What sort of insulation is currently installed and how efficient is it at trapping air in your home? How new the ductwork is, the preferred power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home layout can affect which furnace is right for your home.

Strogen's Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning will set-up a free consultation where they will come to your home and analyze your current set-up. They will go over your options with you and give you a free estimate on a new furnace installation based on your home’s structure and unique features.

Something else that will go into determining the price of your furnace is which business you hire to complete the install. One company may have your desired system at a lower cost, but be mindful and confirm that they are licensed, bonded, and insured just in case something should happen while they’re on your property. If a contractor who was not insured was injured on your property, you can actually be held liable.

All of these pieces go into influencing how much a new HVAC system will cost, but let’s get down to what you came for. We have a few estimates on how much you can expect to pay determined by the style of home you live in.
