How Much Does it Cost to Install a New Furnace?

New Furnace Costs | Fred's Home Services

The two most common questions that homeowners seek answers for when looking for a new furnace are, “what is the best brand for a furnace?”, and “how much does it cost?” In this article, we’ll examine the pricing factors that need to be considered and try to give an outline on how to find the best option for your home.

There is one thing that homeowners should keep in mind when seeking Cleveland furnace installation services, that is, every home has a unique set of variables that will ultimately determine what the best furnace option will be and therefore the price.

Choosing the right furnace installation that fits your home is critical to avoid regrets later. Many homeowners may find that the price has to change several times if they need to add extra options.

Many factors need to be considered in order to avoid making costly mistakes later. The factors listed here can help us decide on the most cost-effective system for your home rather than just going for the cheapest one which often leads to issues.

Size

The size of the furnace is an important factor that cannot be ignored. A system that is too small will be overworked and may even fail to catch up. A furnace installation that is too big will be forced to shut down and start again frequently to avoid overheating.

Zoning

Some areas in your home may have different heating needs than others. Therefore some areas may heat up faster while other areas remain cool. You may need to zone different areas of your home and have a thermostat installed.

Indoor Air Quality

Your furnace installation system may have a feature that cleans up the air as the heat is being distributed throughout your home. There are different types of indoor air quality systems to match your needs. Some of the common requests we receive for these types of furnace systems include:

High Efficient Air Cleaners: These air cleaners are much more efficient and last longer than the standard air filters. They can trap pollen, mold, and dust, up to 40 times more efficiently than a conventional system.

Whole House Humidifiers: Dry air can carry dust and pollen easily causing allergies. It can also cause discomfort to your skin and respiratory system. Whole house humidifiers evenly distribute air to every room and can be either automatic or manual. The other option is room humidifiers which are often portable appliances you can carry into different rooms and plug into a socket.

Efficiency

Energy efficiency is important to consider as it will determine whether you comply with regulations and also how much in cost savings you can make. Some of the energy efficient options often requested by customers are:

80% Efficient Gas Forced Air Furnace: This is the current government minimum standard for Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE). Many homeowners seeking new furnace installation systems are finding that their older installations are averaging 60% efficiency; way below the current minimum standards. An 80% efficient gas forced air furnace uses an open system and may require a less complex installation than the 95% efficient gas forced air furnace.

90+% Efficient Gas Forced Air Furnace: The average heat cost savings are about 10-15% better than the 80% Efficient Furnace. Furnaces rated higher than 90% can recapture lost heat from water vapor, thereby keeping more heat inside your Northeast Ohio home.

Two Stage Gas Valve: When a furnace only has a single stage, it operates at full blast each time it comes on. A two stage furnace allows for a full blast speed as well as a “slow” speed which it will operate at the majority of the time, thus saving on energy costs. Also, when a 2 stage furnace comes on it is usually quieter than a single stage furnace.

These are some of the options that need to be considered when replacing your old furnace. You can contact our friendly help desk and talk to our Cleveland furnace installation professionals who will answer your questions and help you choose the most cost-effective option for your home.
