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 Champaign 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 adjust depending on many factors, like the lifestyle and customs of individuals in the home. Health ailments may also mean you need air filtration systems, which also helps you decide which furnace is best for your home. Even hobbies can help you decide which furnace is right for your home. Do you collect art or are you a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can affect the integrity of these products so you may think about purchasing a whole-home humidifier in your HVAC system.
The next thing to take into consideration is the home’s design. How many windows does your home have and which direction are they facing? What level of insulation is currently installed and how effective is it at trapping air indoors? How new the ductwork is, the preferred power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home design can affect which furnace is best for your family.
Chief/Bauer Service Experts will set-up a no-charge consultation where they will come to your home and analyze your current set-up. The team will discuss your options with you and present you a complimentary estimate on a new furnace installation determined by your home’s design and unique features.
Another factor that will go into determining the price of your furnace is which company you hire to complete the install. 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 just in case something should take place while they’re on your site. In the event a contractor was injured on your property and the contractor was not insured, you can be held liable.
All of these pieces go into deciding how much a new heating and cooling system will cost, but let’s get down to the nitty gritty. We have a few estimates on how much you can expect to pay based on the style of home you live in.
