The fall and winter seasons will be here before you know it and you’ll be relying on your furnace to stay warm, so if you’re thinking that it’s time to get your system replaced, we can help. You’ve likely spent time online doing your research on how much you will need to budget for a new system. We also get a lot of questions from people that are wondering about the total cost of replacing a furnace, so we’ve put together some helpful information that can help you determine what your final cost might be.
The first thing to consider is what type of system you’ll need. There are a lot of different heating systems on the market today, so you’ll need to do your research on which one will be right for your home. We can also help determine what is a good match for your home’s size and specific layout. Most furnaces will last between 15 and 20 years, so remember that no matter what, this is an investment for the long term.
- Gas furnaces: Usually, a natural gas furnace can cost between $4500 and $7000.
- Hybrid heat: This comfort system gives you the comfort of gas heat and the efficiency of a heat pump. You control the system to provide the comfort you need year-round – warmth in the winter and cool air in the summer. These systems range in price from: $13,000 to $18,000.
- Ductless heat pumps: These are very energy efficient and have a great price point. Air-source heat pumps can sometimes be installed for less than $5,500 but can range up to $20,000 depending on the scope of work and space. Ductless heat pumps will provide heating AND air conditioning, so remember when you’re considering getting one of these, you’re getting dual comfort in one machine, making it a great investment for the long term.
- Electric furnaces: These machines come with many features including variable speed blowers, humidity control, and so much more. They range in price from $3,000 to $5,000.
Once you’ve done your research on the different types of furnaces and types of systems that are available we can discuss with you the products that have the best ratings for efficiency. New furnace models are usually highly efficient and have ratings that are generally rated 90% or higher in energy efficiency. This translates to lower utility bills for you and overall comfort.
The final step in determining the overall price range for your new furnace system is to talk to your experienced sales team about what rebates and other money saving incentives are currently offered. Many furnaces come with warranties that could save you money down the road and others come with rebates that knock money off the price right away. There are oftentimes tax incentives and other promotions that are happening that can help offset the cost, too. By combining these deals, you can save hundreds and even thousands of dollars.
