How Much Should a Furnace Cost in Jacksonville?
It’s a terrible feeling when you know you’re close to having to replace your furnace. Sadly, it’s part of life, and the U.S. homeownership, and so is budgeting for a new furnace. So when that dreaded day arrives, where do you start?
The price of a new furnace will fluctuate depending on several factors, such as the lifestyle and customs of individuals in the home. Health problems may also require air filtration systems, which also helps you decide which furnace is right for you. Even hobbies can help determine which furnace is right for your home. Does someone collect art or are you a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can affect the integrity of these things so you may think about purchasing a whole-home humidifier in your heating and cooling system.
The next thing to take a look at is the home’s design. How many windows are there and which direction do they face? What type of insulation do you current have and how well does it trap air inside? How well installed the ductwork is, the preferred power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home layout can affect which furnace is ideal for you.
Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing will set-up a no-charge consultation where they will come to your home and evaluate your current set-up. The technician will review your options with you and provide you a complimentary estimate on a new furnace installation determined by your home’s construction and unique features.
Another factor that will go into determining the price of your furnace is which business you select to perform the installation. One contractor may have your desired system at a lower cost, but be careful and confirm that they are licensed, bonded, and insured just in case something should happen while they’re on your property. If a contractor who was not insured was injured on your property, you can actually be held liable.
All of these factors go into determining how much a new heating and cooling system will cost, but let’s get down to what you really want to know. Below are a few estimates on how much you can expect to pay depending on the sort of home you live in.
