Nobody looks forward to the day that they have to replace their furnace. Unfortunately, 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 residents in the home. Health problems may also result in air filtration systems, which also factors into which furnace is right for your family. Even hobbies can factor into which furnace is right for your home. Do you collect art or are you a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can alter the integrity of these products so you may have to include a whole-home humidifier in your HVAC system.
Another thing to take into consideration is your actual home. How many windows are there and which direction do they face? What sort of insulation is currently in the home and how efficient is it at trapping air indoors? How well installed the ductwork is, the favored power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home design can go into deciding which furnace is right for your home.
Neal Harris Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing will set-up a no-charge consultation where they will go out to your home and evaluate your current set-up. The technician will go over your options with you and give you a complimentary estimate on a new furnace installation determined by your home’s structure and unique characteristics.
The next thing that will affect the price of your furnace is which company you select to complete the install. One company may have your desired system 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 property. 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 the nitty gritty. We’ve provided a few estimates on what you can expect to pay based on the type of home you live in.
