Average Cost for a New Furnace
For starters, you can't just look at the furnace cost.
You have to look at the type of furnace, installation parameters, and what is needed for the furnace to run efficiently.
A furnace is a big chunk of money that will be tailored to your homes' needs.
So with that said, let's look into some of the questions that need to be answered...
Do you need to switch from oil to gas or electric to gas?
If so there are added fees for the extra products.
To switch from oil to natural gas, you need to consider the materials needed such as pipelines.
Running pipelines to your house can get costly depending on how far the closest gas line is, but it will save you in the long run on your monthly bill.
The old oil system will also need to be removed.
An HVAC technician will have to see if there are any other costume changes needed for your property.
Switching from electric to natural gas is different based on your current system.
Your home may have electric radiators or baseboard heaters. It might even have a forced air system already set up.
For a radiator or baseboard heat system to be switched to natural gas ductwork will need to be installed.
Depending on the house ductwork may not even be an option. This would rule out the transition.
If your house has a forced air system then the ductwork is already there. This would save time and money!
What size home do you have?
Your houses age, layout, and size will make up a big part of which type, size, and the model furnace would be best for you.
You might want to look at your heat load calculations by having a Manual J test done.
There are even apps that allow you to do it yourself.
Manual J Test looks at:
- What type of foundation your home has
- The type and color of your roof
- How well insulated your house is
- How many windows you have
- The location of your windows
- The type of windows (energy efficient or not)
- How many exterior doors your home has
- Where your exterior doors are located
- What temperature you want your house to maintain
- Where your house is located
- How big or small your house is
- The direction your house faces
- What materials where you use to build your home
- How much shade or sun hits you house during each season
What will installation fees be?
Here is a simple rule of thumb. The more expensive the unit, the more expensive the installation.
The installation process doesn't just include hooking up the unit it.
Installation includes connecting the unit, checking that everything runs correctly and that the homeowner is stratified and educated on their new furnace.
Take into consideration the type of thermostat you want.
Higher end thermostats have more features that will need to be gone over to ensure your home functions as smooth and energy efficient as possible.
If you have a zoning system installed it requires more thermostats and time to educate the homeowners on how to use it.
The total number of hours the job takes the more expensive it will be.
How long will my furnace last and what are the maintenance costs?
Most homeowners don't even think about the ongoing upkeep of their furnace or the expenses of parts if there needs to be a repair in the future.
Different systems have different costs, so do their pieces and parts.
It's much like a car.
Even if you can afford the fancier brand, it sometimes makes it too hard to keep up with its costly repairs and maintenance.
If you have the wrong size furnace, it will usually break down sooner.
With the proper system and annual tune-ups, a furnace should last 15-20 years.
The national average cost of furnace replacement is $4,193, with most homeowners spending between $2,510 and $6,056.
