How Much Should a Furnace Cost in Columbia?

September 24, 2016

Nobody looks forward to the day that they have to replace their furnace. Sadly, it’s part of life, and Columbia homeownership, and so is budgeting for a new furnace. So when that awful day finds you, where do you start?

The cost of a new furnace will fluctuate depending on several factors, like the lifestyle and habits of residents in the home. Health ailments may also require air filtration systems, which also helps you decide which furnace is right for your home. Even interests can factor into which furnace is right for you. Does someone collect art or is someone a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can impact the integrity of these products so you may consider investing in a whole-home humidifier in your HVAC system.

Something else to take a look at is the home’s design. What is the window count in the home and which direction do the windows face? What sort of insulation is currently in the home and how well does it trap air inside? How efficient the ductwork is, the favored power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home blueprint can affect which furnace is best for your family.

Midland Air Service Experts will set-up a no-charge consultation where they will visit your home and analyze your current set-up. They will review your options with you and present you a complimentary estimate on a new furnace installation determined by your home’s construction and unique characteristics.

The next thing that will determine the price of your furnace is which business you select to install your system. One business may have the equipment you want at a lower cost, but be mindful and make sure that they are licensed, bonded, and insured just in case something should take place while they’re on your premises. 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 air conditioning system will cost, but let’s get down to the nitty gritty. Below are a few estimates on how much you can expect to pay based on the sort of home you live in.
