It’s a terrible feeling when you know you’re close to having to replace your furnace. But alas, it’s part of life, and Fort Wayne homeownership, and so is budgeting for a new furnace. So when that dreaded day comes, where do you start?
The price of a new furnace will fluctuate depending on several factors, including the lifestyle and customs of individuals in the home. Health problems may also mean you need air filtration systems, which also factors into which furnace is right for your family. Even interests can help determine which furnace is right for your home. Does someone collect art or are you a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can impact the integrity of these products so you may think about purchasing a whole-home humidifier in your HVAC system.
Something else to consider is the home’s design. What is the window count in the home and which direction do the windows face? What level of insulation is currently installed and how well does it trap air inside? How efficient the ductwork is, the preferred power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home design can go into deciding which furnace is right for your family.
Rolf Griffin Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning will set-up a complimentary consultation where they will visit your home and analyze your current set-up. They will review your options with you and provide you a complimentary estimate on a new furnace installation based on your home’s construction and unique features.
The next thing that will determine the price of your furnace is which contractor you select to perform the installation. One contractor may have the system you want at a lower cost, but be mindful and verify that they are licensed, bonded, and insured in the event something should happen while they’re on your property. In the event a contractor was injured on your property and the contractor was not insured, you can be held liable.
All of these factors go into deciding how much a new HVAC system will cost, but let’s get down to what you really want to know. Below are a few estimates on the amount you can expect to pay determined by the style of home you live in.
