How Much Should a Furnace Cost in Fort Wayne?

September 24, 2016

It’s a terrible feeling when you know you’re close to having to replace your furnace. Unfortunately, it’s part of life, and Fort Wayne homeownership, and so is budgeting for a new furnace. So when that scary day arrives, where do you start?

The price of a new furnace will vary depending on several factors, such as the lifestyle and customs of individuals in the home. Health problems may also mean you need air filtration systems, which also helps determine which furnace is best for your family. Even interests can factor into 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 type of insulation do you current have and how well does it trap air indoors? How efficient the ductwork is, the preferred power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home layout can go into deciding which furnace is best for your family.

Rolf Griffin Service Experts will set-up a complimentary consultation where they will come to your home and analyze your current set-up. The technician will go over your options with you and give you a free estimate on a new furnace installation determined by your home’s construction and unique features.

The next thing that will determine the price of your furnace is which contractor you select to install your system. One company may have the system you want at a lower cost, but be mindful and make sure that they are licensed, bonded, and insured in the event something should occur 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 the nitty gritty. Below are a few estimates on the amount you can expect to pay determined by the type of home you live in.
