Nobody looks forward to the day that they have to replace their furnace. But alas, it’s part of life, and Hillsborough homeownership, and so is investing in a new furnace. So when that dreaded day comes, where do you start?
The value of a new furnace will vary depending on several factors, such as the lifestyle and habits of people in the home. Health problems may also result in air filtration systems, which also helps you decide which furnace is right for your family. Even hobbies can help you decide which furnace is right for you. Do you collect art or are you a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can impact the integrity of these things so you may have to include a whole-home humidifier in your heating and cooling system.
Something else to take into consideration is your actual home. How many windows are there and which direction do they face? What level of insulation do you current have and how efficient is it at trapping air indoors? How efficient the ductwork is, the preferred power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home layout can go into deciding which furnace is ideal for your home.
Fras-Air/General Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning will set-up a no-charge consultation where they will go out to your home and evaluate your current set-up. The technician will review your options with you and give you a complimentary estimate on a new furnace installation based on their review of your home’s construction and unique traits.
The next thing that will go into determining the price of your furnace is which company you choose to perform the installation. One company may have the equipment you want at a lower cost, but be careful and verify that they are licensed, bonded, and insured just in case something should take place while they’re on your premises. 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 influencing how much a new heating and air conditioning system will cost, but let’s get down to the nitty gritty. Below are a few estimates on how much you can expect to pay depending on the sort of home you live in.
