It’s a terrible feeling when you know you’re close to having to replace your furnace. But alas, it’s part of life, and Calgary 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 vary depending on many factors, such as the lifestyle and habits of people in the home. Health ailments may also mean you need air filtration systems, which also helps you decide which furnace is ideal for your home. Even interests can factor into which furnace is right for you. Do you collect art or are you a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can affect the integrity of these products so you may have to include a whole-home humidifier in your heating and cooling system.
Another 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 is currently installed and how efficient is it at trapping air in your home? How well installed the ductwork is, the preferred power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home design can go into deciding which furnace is best for you.
Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning will set-up a complimentary consultation where they will come to your home and analyze your current set-up. They will go over your options with you and provide you a free estimate on a new furnace installation based on their review of your home’s construction and unique characteristics.
Another factor that will determine the price of your furnace is which company you hire 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 happen while they’re on your site. 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 deciding 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 what you can expect to pay determined by the type of home you live in.
