How Much Should a Furnace Cost in Austin?

September 24, 2016

Nobody looks forward to the day that they have to replace their furnace. Sadly, 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 cost of a new furnace will adjust depending on several factors, including the lifestyle and behaviors of residents in the home. Health ailments may also require air filtration systems, which also helps you decide which furnace is right for your family. Even hobbies can factor into which furnace is right for your home. Does someone collect art or is someone a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can affect the integrity of these items so you may think about purchasing a whole-home humidifier in your heating and cooling system.

Another thing to take a look at is the home itself. How many windows are there and which direction do they face? What level of insulation do you current have and how efficient is it at trapping air inside? How new the ductwork is, the favored power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home design can help determine which furnace is ideal for your family.

Strand Brothers Service Experts will set-up a free consultation where they will visit your home and evaluate your current set-up. The team will review your options with you and give you a no-charge estimate on a new furnace installation based on their review of your home’s structure and unique features.

Another factor that will affect the price of your furnace is which company you select to perform the installation. One company may have your desired system at a lower cost, but proceed with caution and verify that they are licensed, bonded, and insured in the event 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 things go into determining how much a new heating and cooling system will cost, but let’s get down to what you came for. We’ve provided a few estimates on how much you can expect to pay depending on the style of home you live in.
