If your furnace is on its last leg and you’re looking at a costly repair, it might be time to consider purchasing a new furnace. Furnaces typically last 15-20 years, so you shouldn’t have to replace often, but when the time comes, you want to make sure you select the best furnace for your needs. You are expecting it to last you another couple of decades, after all.
Unfortunately, purchasing a new furnace coupled with a furnace installation isn’t going to be a cheap upgrade. There are many options on the market and the cost of the installation is a pretty wide range. There are many factors that go into determining the cost of the installation. The type of furnace you choose more significantly determines the cost. Gas furnaces are more expensive than electric ones, but before you decide to go ahead with the electric furnace, you need to consider the amount of space you are trying to heat. Electric furnaces are not as effective at heating large spaces, so depending on the size of your home, you might need to go with a gas furnace.
The size of your home will also determine the cost of your furnace installation and the pre-existing duct work. If your duct work is in good condition and where it needs to be, that will significantly cut down on the labour costs. If you need repairs to your ductwork or new ductwork needs to be installed, your cost will go up. Often this is difficult to determine until the installation has begun.
