How much does a new furnace cost? Posted by on December 28, 2016 in Furnaces, Heating

This is probably one of the most common questions when it comes to furnace replacement.  Any qualified HVAC technician or company will not give you an accurate estimate without looking at your existing furnace and setup.  You should always be leery of an HVAC professional that gives you a price sight unseen.  Most reliable HVAC companies offer a free in-home estimate to thoroughly inspect your system and evaluate your heating needs.

Estimating the Cost of a Furnace

Based on the demand for this information we compiled some cost guidelines to give you an idea of what a new furnace may cost. With new options with high-efficiency units, the price can vary depending on the type of unit you choose for your home.

This cost chart represents cost estimates based on the size of the home and the type of furnaces available for installation.  Higher Efficiency options have become a huge factor in options available for customers.

This is not meant to replace an accurate in-home estimate. These are only ballpark estimates. There may be other factors that determine your actual estimate to install a new furnace.

*This does not reflect costs for homes over 2,500 sq/ft. As those homes will require more than one unit to heat the home. We are not able to give ballpark costs for homes over that size.


Do your homework:

If you know or anticipate that you might need a new furnace, you might want to do your research and know your options before it goes out. The last thing you want to do is feel forced into a decision because you have no heat. If you would like to upgrade your furnace to a higher efficiency unit compare different options. If you need help reach out to a professional HVAC company you trust. Most quality companies will give you a free estimate with no obligations.

Did you know:

Did you know that if you are considering converting to refrigerated air in the future you can prep your new furnace for conversion? In most cases, you need to replace your furnace when converting to central air conditioning. Typically the furnace is the air handler for both heating and air conditioning. When adding air conditioning an evaporator coil must be added to the furnace. You can install it now when replacing your furnace to save you when you decide to convert.  If you need to replace your furnace but are considering refrigerated air in the near future, talk to your HVAC professional about prepping your new furnace for the conversion.

Evaluate Warranties and Maintenance Options

You should ask your HVAC professional or research on your own the warranties on furnaces. Ask your technician if they will honor the manufacturer’s warranty, do they offer a warranty of their own as well? What about maintaining your new furnace? Did you know that just like a new car your warranty can be voided if you don’t perform proper maintenance on your heating and cooling system? If not you may find yourself in need of a local Albuquerque furnace repair service before to long. The bottom line is your heating system is vital to your family’s safety and comfort, make sure you stay informed and know what you need to ask your HVAC professional.  If you have any additional questions about new furnaces, feel free to ask our technicians.
