Nobody looks forward to the day that they have to replace their furnace. Unfortunately, it’s part of life, and Clearwater homeownership, and so is budgeting for a new furnace. So when that awful day comes, where do you start?
The cost of a new furnace will fluctuate depending on multiple factors, including the lifestyle and behaviors of residents in the home. Health issues may also require air filtration systems, which also factors into which furnace is right for you. Even hobbies can factor into which furnace is right for your family. Do you collect art or is someone a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can affect the integrity of these things so you may have to include a whole-home humidifier in your HVAC system.
Something else to take into consideration is your actual home. How many windows are there and which direction do they face? What level of insulation is currently in the home and how efficient is it at trapping air inside? How efficient the ductwork is, the preferred power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home design can go into deciding which furnace is right for you.
Midway Services will set-up a free consultation where they will come to your home and assess your current set-up. They will discuss your options with you and provide you a free estimate on a new furnace installation based on your home’s construction and unique features.
Another factor that will affect the price of your furnace is which business you choose to perform the installation. One business may have your desired system at a lower cost, but proceed with caution and verify that they are licensed, bonded, and insured just in case something should take place while they’re on your property. You can actually be held liable if a contractor were to get injured on your property if they are not insured.
