How Much Should a Furnace Cost in Albany?

September 24, 2016

It’s a terrible feeling when you know you’re close to having to replace your furnace. Sadly, it’s part of life, and Albany 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 adjust depending on multiple factors, such as 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 best for your home. Even hobbies can factor into which furnace is right for your home. Does someone collect art or is anyone a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can affect the integrity of these items so you may consider investing in a whole-home humidifier in your heating and cooling system.

Something else to take into consideration is your actual home. How many windows are there and which direction do they face? What type of insulation is currently installed and how effective is it at trapping air inside? How efficient the ductwork is, the chosen power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home design can affect which furnace is best for your family.

D.A. Bennett Service Experts will set-up a free consultation where they will go out to your home and assess your current set-up. The team will go over your options with you and provide you a free estimate on a new furnace installation based on their review of your home’s design and unique characteristics.

The next thing that will go into determining the price of your furnace is which business you choose to complete the install. One contractor may have the equipment you want at a lower cost, but proceed with caution and confirm that they are licensed, bonded, and insured in the event something should occur while they’re on your property. In the event a contractor was injured on your property and the contractor was not insured, you can be held liable.

All of these factors go into determining how much a new HVAC system will cost, but let’s get down to what you really want to know. We have a few estimates on the amount you can expect to pay depending on the sort of home you live in.
