Nobody looks forward to the day that they have to replace their furnace. Unfortunately, it’s part of life, and Louisville homeownership, and so is investing in a new furnace. So when that dreaded day comes, where do you start?
The value of a new furnace will adjust depending on several factors, including the lifestyle and habits of individuals in the home. Health issues may also result in air filtration systems, which also helps determine which furnace is best for your home. Even hobbies can help you decide which furnace is right for your home. Does someone collect art or are you a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can alter the integrity of these things so you may have to include a whole-home humidifier in your heating and air conditioning system.
The next thing to consider is the home’s design. How many windows does your home have and which direction are they facing? What sort of insulation do you current have and how efficient is it at trapping air indoors? How efficient the ductwork is, the preferred power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home layout can help determine which furnace is right for you.
Becht/Givens Service Experts will set-up a free consultation where they will visit your home and assess your current set-up. The team will discuss your options with you and give you a no-charge estimate on a new furnace installation based on your home’s design and unique characteristics.
The next thing that will affect the price of your furnace is which contractor you hire to perform the installation. One business may have your desired system at a lower cost, but be careful and make sure that they are licensed, bonded, and insured in the event something should take place while they’re on your site. In the event a contractor was injured on your property and the contractor was not insured, you can be held liable.
All of these things go into determining how much a new heating and air conditioning system will cost, but let’s get down to the nitty gritty. Below are a few estimates on what you can expect to pay determined by the style of home you live in.
