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 budgeting for a new furnace. So when that awful day finds you, where do you start?
The cost of a new furnace will vary depending on several factors, such as the lifestyle and customs of individuals in the home. Health issues may also mean you need air filtration systems, which also helps you decide which furnace is right for you. Even interests can help determine which furnace is right for your family. Does anyone collect art or is anyone a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can affect the integrity of these products so you may have to include a whole-home humidifier in your HVAC system.
Another thing to take a look at is the home’s design. How many windows does your home have and which direction are they facing? What level of insulation do you current have and how efficient is it at trapping air indoors? How new the ductwork is, the favored power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home blueprint can help determine which furnace is best for your home.

Another factor that will affect the price of your furnace is which company you select to install your system. One contractor may have the equipment you want at a lower cost, but be careful and confirm that they are licensed, bonded, and insured in the event something should happen while they’re on your premises. In the event a contractor was injured on your property and the contractor was not insured, you can be held liable.
