You’re here because you want to know what it will cost you to install a new furnace in Windsor. While furnaces aren’t cheap, you have to remember that furnaces are a financial investment in your home, health, and comfort. So, you don’t want to choose one based on price alone. Many factors affect the cost of a new furnace and they’re specific to your home. Therefore, we can’t provide an exact estimate of the cost of the furnace you need without a bit of investigation.
What Affects the Cost of a New Furnace
The first consideration is fuel source- natural gas, electric or oil? Generally, electric furnaces are slightly less expensive than natural gas furnaces. However, gas furnaces tend to be cheaper to operate.
House Size & Layout
We also need to evaluate the size and layout of your house to determine which type of heating system is most suitable for your home. A furnace that’s too big or too small for your home can lead to excessive energy use, improper heating, and other issues.
Furnace Brand & Efficiency
Another consideration that impacts is the brand and efficiency rating. Typically, you will have a few different options to choose from. A furnace with a higher efficiency rating may be more expensive upfront, but it’ll be cheaper to run as it uses less energy.
The complexity of the installation also affects the final cost. We need to inspect your home, including existing ductwork, to provide an accurate estimate. The more complex the installation work, the higher the cost.
Air Quality Systems
If your home requires additional home comfort accessories such as a humidifier or air purifier, it will add to the cost. However, it’s better to have these systems installed at the same time as your furnace installation as it’s more affordable than adding them later.
Other Factors That Affect Furnace Cost
Other variables that affect the cost of a furnace and its installation include:
- Number of occupants
- Personal comfort preferences
- Advanced features
- Time of year
