Nobody looks forward to the day that they have to replace their furnace. Unfortunately, it’s part of life, and Richmond homeownership, and so is purchasing a new furnace. So when that awful day finds you, where do you start?
The cost of a new furnace will fluctuate depending on several factors, like the lifestyle and habits of residents in the home. Health issues may also mean you need air filtration systems, which also helps determine which furnace is best for your family. Even hobbies can factor into which furnace is right for your home. Does anyone collect art or are you a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can affect the integrity of these products so you may have to include a whole-home humidifier in your heating and cooling system.
Something else to take into consideration is your actual home. How many windows does your home have and which direction are they facing? What type of insulation do you current have and how well does it trap air inside? How efficient the ductwork is, the chosen power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home layout can help determine which furnace is ideal for your home.
Eveready Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning will set-up a complimentary consultation where they will come to your home and analyze your current set-up. The technician will review your options with you and present 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 be careful and make sure that they are licensed, bonded, and insured in the event something should happen while they’re on your site. In the event a contractor was injured on your property and the contractor was not insured, you can be held liable.
