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 dreaded day comes, where do you start?
The cost of a new furnace will vary depending on several factors, such as the lifestyle and customs of people in the home. Health ailments may also require air filtration systems, which also helps you decide which furnace is ideal for your home. Even hobbies can help you decide which furnace is right for you. Does someone collect art or are you a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can alter the integrity of these things so you may have to include a whole-home humidifier in your HVAC system.
Another thing to take a look at is the home’s design. How many windows does your home have and which direction are they facing? What type of insulation is currently in the home and how effective 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 best for your home.
Parker Pearce Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning will set-up a complimentary consultation where they will come to your home and evaluate your current set-up. The technician will go over 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 company 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.
All of these things go into influencing how much a new heating and air conditioning system will cost, but let’s get down to what you really want to know. We have a few estimates on the amount you can expect to pay depending on the type of home you live in.
