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 Gaithersburg homeownership, and so is investing in a new furnace. So when that scary day arrives, where do you start?
The price of a new furnace will fluctuate depending on many factors, including the lifestyle and customs of residents in the home. Health issues may also require air filtration systems, which also helps you decide which furnace is ideal for you. Even collections can help you decide which furnace is right for your family. Does someone collect art or is someone a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can alter the integrity of these things so you may consider investing in a whole-home humidifier in your heating and cooling system.
The next thing to take into consideration is the home’s design. How many windows does your home have and which direction are they facing? What level of insulation is currently in the home and how effective 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 right for you.
Parker Pearce Service Experts will set-up a free consultation where they will come to your home and assess your current set-up. The technician will review your options with you and give you a free estimate on a new furnace installation based on your home’s structure and unique traits.
The next thing that will go into determining the price of your furnace is which contractor you select to complete the install. One company may have your desired system at a lower cost, but be mindful and confirm that they are licensed, bonded, and insured just in case something should occur while they’re on your site. You can actually be held liable if a contractor were to get injured on your property if they are not insured.
