It’s never fun thinking about having to replace your furnace. But alas, it’s part of life, and Columbus homeownership, and so is budgeting for a new furnace. So when that scary day arrives, where do you start?
The value of a new furnace will adjust depending on several factors, like the lifestyle and habits of people in the home. Health problems may also mean you need air filtration systems, which also factors into which furnace is ideal for you. Even collections can factor into which furnace is right for your family. Does someone collect art or is someone a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can alter the integrity of these products so you may think about purchasing a whole-home humidifier in your heating and air conditioning system.
Another thing to take into consideration is your actual home. 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 in your home? How new the ductwork is, the favored power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home layout can help determine which furnace is right for you.
Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning will set-up a free consultation where they will come to your home and evaluate your current set-up. The team will discuss your options with you and give you a complimentary estimate on a new furnace installation determined by your home’s construction and unique traits.
The next thing that will affect the price of your furnace is which business you choose to perform the installation. One contractor may have the equipment you want at a lower cost, but be mindful and confirm that they are licensed, bonded, and insured given 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.
