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 price 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 collections can help determine 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 things so you may consider investing in a whole-home humidifier in your HVAC system.
Something else to take into consideration is the home itself. What is the window count in the home and which direction do the windows face? What type of insulation do you current have and how effective is it at trapping air indoors? How efficient the ductwork is, the chosen power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home design can help determine which furnace is best for your family.

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 company may have the equipment you want at a lower cost, but be careful and confirm that they are licensed, bonded, and insured just in case 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.
