September 24, 2016

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 Canada homeownership, and so is budgeting for a new furnace. So when that dreaded day comes, where do you start?

The cost of a new furnace will fluctuate depending on several factors, including the lifestyle and habits of residents in the home. Health problems may also mean you need air filtration systems, which also helps determine which furnace is right for your home. Even interests can help determine which furnace is right for your home. Do you collect art or are you a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can alter the integrity of these products so you may consider investing in a whole-home humidifier in your heating and air conditioning system.

The next thing to take into consideration is the home itself. How many windows are there and which direction do they face? What level of insulation do you current have and how efficient is it at trapping air indoors? How new the ductwork is, the favored power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home blueprint can go into deciding which furnace is ideal for your family.

The technician will discuss your options with you and give you a complimentary estimate on a new furnace installation based on their review of your home’s construction and unique features.

Something else that will determine the price of your furnace is which business you choose to install your system. One business may have the equipment you want at a lower cost, but be careful and confirm that they are licensed, bonded, and insured just in case something should occur 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.
