How Much Should a Furnace Cost in Columbia?

September 24, 2016

It’s never fun thinking about having to replace your 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 vary depending on many factors, like the lifestyle and behaviors of residents in the home. Health ailments may also mean you need air filtration systems, which also helps you decide which furnace is right for your home. Even interests can help determine which furnace is right for your family. Does someone 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.

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 indoors? How well installed 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 Heating & Air Conditioning will set-up a no-charge consultation where they will come to 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 based on your home’s structure and unique characteristics.

The next thing that will affect the price of your furnace is which business you select to perform the installation. 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 what you really want to know. We’ve provided a few estimates on how much you can expect to pay depending on the sort of home you live in.
