It’s a terrible feeling when you know you’re close to having to replace your furnace. Unfortunately, it’s part of life, and Champaign homeownership, and so is investing in a new furnace. So when that scary day arrives, 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 issues 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. Does anyone 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 heating and cooling system.
The next 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 type of insulation is currently installed and how efficient is it at trapping air indoors? How new the ductwork is, the preferred power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home design can help determine which furnace is right for your family.
Chief / Bauer Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning will set-up a no-charge consultation where they will visit 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 contractor you hire to complete the install. One contractor may have your desired system at a lower cost, but be mindful and verify that they are licensed, bonded, and insured in the event 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 air conditioning system will cost, but let’s get down to what you really want to know. We have a few estimates on how much you can expect to pay based on the type of home you live in.
