Nobody looks forward to the day that they have to replace their furnace. Unfortunately, it’s part of life, and Austin 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 vary depending on several factors, such as the lifestyle and customs of residents in the home. Health issues may also require air filtration systems, which also factors into which furnace is right for you. Even hobbies can factor into which furnace is right for your family. Do you collect art or is someone a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can affect the integrity of these items so you may have to include a whole-home humidifier in your HVAC system.
The next thing to take a look at is the home’s design. How many windows are there and which direction do they face? What type of insulation is currently installed and how efficient is it at trapping air inside? How efficient the ductwork is, the preferred power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home design can go into deciding which furnace is right for you.
Strand Brothers Service Experts will set-up a free consultation where they will visit your home and analyze your current set-up. They will review your options with you and provide you a free estimate on a new furnace installation based on your home’s design and unique features.
Another factor that will determine the price of your furnace is which business you choose to complete the install. One company may have your desired system at a lower cost, but proceed with caution and verify that they are licensed, bonded, and insured just in case something should happen while they’re on your property. If a contractor who was not insured was injured on your property, you can actually be held liable.
All of these factors go into determining how much a new heating and cooling system will cost, but let’s get down to what you really want to know. Below are a few estimates on what you can expect to pay depending on the type of home you live in.
