How Much Should a Furnace Cost in Charlotte?

September 24, 2016

It’s never fun thinking about having to replace your furnace. But alas, it’s part of life, and Charlotte homeownership, and so is purchasing a new furnace. So when that dreaded day comes, where do you start?

The value of a new furnace will vary depending on several factors, like the lifestyle and customs of individuals in the home. Health problems may also mean you need air filtration systems, which also helps determine which furnace is best for your home. Even collections can factor into which furnace is right for you. Do you collect art or is someone a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can impact the integrity of these things so you may have to include a whole-home humidifier in your heating and air conditioning system.

Another thing to take into consideration is the home’s design. What is the window count in the home and which direction do the windows face? What type of insulation is currently installed and how effective is it at trapping air inside? How well installed the ductwork is, the favored power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home design can help determine which furnace is best for you.

Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning will set-up a free consultation where they will visit your home and evaluate your current set-up. The technician will review your options with you and provide you a free estimate on a new furnace installation based on their review of your home’s design and unique traits.

Another factor that will determine the price of your furnace is which business you select to complete the install. One contractor may have the system you want at a lower cost, but be careful and confirm that they are licensed, bonded, and insured given something should occur while they’re on your premises. You can actually be held liable if a contractor were to get injured on your property if they are not insured.

All of these factors go into deciding how much a new heating and air conditioning system will cost, but let’s get down to the nitty gritty. Below are a few estimates on how much you can expect to pay determined by the style of home you live in.
