Nobody looks forward to the day that they have to replace their furnace. Sadly, it’s part of life, and Fort Lauderdale homeownership, and so is budgeting for a new furnace. So when that awful day finds you, where do you start?
The cost of a new furnace will adjust depending on several factors, like the lifestyle and customs of residents in the home. Health ailments may also mean you need air filtration systems, which also helps determine which furnace is ideal for your family. Even hobbies can help you decide which furnace is right for your home. Do you collect art or is someone a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can impact the integrity of these things so you may think about purchasing a whole-home humidifier in your HVAC system.
The next thing to consider is the home itself. What is the window count in the home and which direction do the windows face? What type of insulation is currently in the home and how efficient is it at trapping air inside? How new the ductwork is, the preferred 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 no-charge consultation where they will visit your home and evaluate your current set-up. The technician will go over your options with you and give you a complimentary estimate on a new furnace installation based on your home’s construction and unique characteristics.
The next thing that will determine the price of your furnace is which company you hire to complete the install. One contractor may have the system you want at a lower cost, but be mindful and make sure that they are licensed, bonded, and insured just in case something should occur while they’re on your site. If a contractor who was not insured was injured on your property, you can actually be held liable.
