It’s never fun thinking about having to replace your furnace. Unfortunately, it’s part of life, and Hillsborough homeownership, and so is budgeting for 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, including the lifestyle and behaviors of people in the home. Health problems may also result in air filtration systems, which also helps you decide which furnace is best for your family. Even hobbies can help you decide which furnace is right for you. Does anyone collect art or is someone a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can impact the integrity of these things so you may consider investing in a whole-home humidifier in your HVAC system.
Something else to take into consideration is your actual home. How many windows are there and which direction do they face? What type of insulation is currently installed and how efficient is it at trapping air indoors? How well installed the ductwork is, the preferred power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home design can go into deciding which furnace is ideal for you.
Fras-Air/General Service Experts will set-up a no-charge consultation where they will go out to your home and evaluate your current set-up. They will go over your options with you and provide you a complimentary estimate on a new furnace installation based on their review of your home’s construction and unique features.
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 proceed with caution and verify that they are licensed, bonded, and insured in the event something should take place 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 factors go into influencing how much a new heating and air conditioning system will cost, but let’s get down to what you really want to know. Below are a few estimates on what you can expect to pay based on the sort of home you live in.
