How Much Should a Furnace Cost in Kansas City?

September 24, 2016

Nobody looks forward to the day that they have to replace their furnace. But alas, it’s part of life, and Kansas City homeownership, and so is purchasing a new furnace. So when that dreaded day comes, where do you start?

The value of a new furnace will fluctuate depending on multiple factors, like the lifestyle and customs of people in the home. Health problems may also result in air filtration systems, which also helps determine which furnace is best for your family. Even collections can factor into which furnace is right for your home. Does anyone collect art or are you a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can alter the integrity of these products so you may consider investing in a whole-home humidifier in your HVAC system.

The next thing to take into consideration 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 in the home and how effective is it at trapping air indoors? How efficient the ductwork is, the favored power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home design can go into deciding which furnace is best for your home.

Neal Harris Service Experts will set-up a no-charge consultation where they will go out to your home and evaluate your current set-up. They will review your options with you and give you a free estimate on a new furnace installation based on your home’s construction and unique characteristics.

The next thing that will affect the price of your furnace is which contractor you select to complete the install. One contractor may have the system you want at a lower cost, but be careful and confirm that they are licensed, bonded, and insured given something should happen while they’re on your premises. In the event a contractor was injured on your property and the contractor was not insured, you can be held liable.

All of these things go into determining how much a new HVAC system will cost, but let’s get down to what you really want to know. We’ve provided a few estimates on what you can expect to pay depending on the type of home you live in.
