It’s never fun thinking about having to replace your furnace. But alas, it’s part of life, and the U.S. homeownership, and so is purchasing a new furnace. So when that awful day arrives, where do you start?
The value of a new furnace will adjust depending on several factors, like the lifestyle and customs of residents in the home. Health issues may also require air filtration systems, which also factors into which furnace is right for your home. Even interests can factor into which furnace is right for your family. Do you collect art or is anyone a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can impact the integrity of these items so you may consider investing in a whole-home humidifier in your heating and air conditioning system.
Another thing to consider is the home itself. What is the window count in the home and which direction do the windows face? What sort of insulation is currently installed and how efficient is it at trapping air inside? How well installed the ductwork is, the preferred power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home design can help determine which furnace is best for your family.
Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing will set-up a no-charge consultation where they will come 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 features.
Another factor that will affect the price of your furnace is which company you select to install your system. One contractor may have your desired system at a lower cost, but proceed with caution and verify that they are licensed, bonded, and insured just in case something should happen while they’re on your property. If a contractor who was not insured was injured on your property, you can actually be held liable.
