How Much Should a Furnace Cost in Austin?

September 24, 2016

It’s never fun thinking about having to replace your furnace. Sadly, it’s part of life, and Austin homeownership, and so is investing in a new furnace. So when that scary day arrives, where do you start?

The cost of a new furnace will adjust depending on many factors, including the lifestyle and behaviors of people in the home. Health ailments may also require air filtration systems, which also helps you decide which furnace is best for your family. Even collections 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 things so you may think about purchasing a whole-home humidifier in your heating and cooling 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 level of insulation do you current have and how efficient is it at trapping air indoors? How new the ductwork is, the favored power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home layout can help determine which furnace is ideal for your family.

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

Something else that will affect the price of your furnace is which company you select to install your system. One company may have your desired system at a lower cost, but be careful and verify that they are licensed, bonded, and insured in the event something should occur while they’re on your premises. You can actually be held liable if a contractor were to get injured on your property if they are not insured.

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 type of home you live in.
