How Much Should a Furnace Cost in Houston?

September 24, 2016

Nobody looks forward to the day that they have to replace their furnace. Unfortunately, it’s part of life, and Houston homeownership, and so is budgeting for a new furnace. So when that scary day arrives, where do you start?

The price of a new furnace will adjust depending on several factors, like the lifestyle and habits of people in the home. Health ailments may also result in air filtration systems, which also helps you decide which furnace is best for your family. Even hobbies can factor into which furnace is right for your family. Does anyone 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 heating and air conditioning system.

The next thing to take a look at is the home’s design. What is the window count in the home and which direction do the windows face? What sort of insulation is currently installed and how well does it trap air inside? How new the ductwork is, the chosen power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home design can affect which furnace is right for your family.

Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning will set-up a complimentary consultation where they will go out to your home and evaluate your current set-up. They will discuss your options with you and give you a free estimate on a new furnace installation based on their review of your home’s structure and unique features.

Something else that will determine the price of your furnace is which company you choose to perform the installation. One contractor may have the equipment you want at a lower cost, but proceed with caution and make sure that they are licensed, bonded, and insured just in case something should happen 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 things go into determining how much a new HVAC system will cost, but let’s get down to what you came for. Below are a few estimates on the amount you can expect to pay depending on the style of home you live in.
