It’s never fun thinking about having to replace your furnace. Sadly, it’s part of life, and Edmonton 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 customs of residents in the home. Health issues may also mean you need air filtration systems, which also helps determine which furnace is best for your home. Even hobbies can help determine which furnace is right for your family. Does anyone collect art or are you a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can impact the integrity of these items so you may consider investing in a whole-home humidifier in your heating and cooling system.
Something else to consider is the home’s design. How many windows does your home have and which direction are they facing? What level of insulation do you current have and how well does it trap air indoors? How new the ductwork is, the preferred power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home layout can help determine which furnace is best for your home.
McKinley Heating Service Experts will set-up a free consultation where they will go out to your home and evaluate your current set-up. They will discuss your options with you and present you a complimentary estimate on a new furnace installation based on their review of your home’s structure and unique features.
The next thing that will affect the price of your furnace is which company you choose to perform the installation. One contractor may have your desired system at a lower cost, but be mindful and make sure that they are licensed, bonded, and insured given something should occur while they’re on your site. You can actually be held liable if a contractor were to get injured on your property if they are not insured.
