Nobody looks forward to the day that they have to replace their furnace. But alas, it’s part of life, and Louisville homeownership, and so is investing in 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, including the lifestyle and behaviors of individuals in the home. Health issues may also result in air filtration systems, which also helps determine which furnace is right for you. 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 items so you may consider investing in a whole-home humidifier in your heating and air conditioning system.
Another 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 effective is it at trapping air inside? How well installed the ductwork is, the chosen power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home design can help determine which furnace is best for you.
Becht/Givens Service Experts will set-up a free consultation where they will visit your home and evaluate your current set-up. The team will discuss your options with you and give you a no-charge estimate on a new furnace installation determined by your home’s design and unique characteristics.
The next thing that will determine the price of your furnace is which company you hire to perform the installation. One business may have your desired system at a lower cost, but proceed with caution and verify that they are licensed, bonded, and insured just in case 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 influencing how much a new heating and cooling system will cost, but let’s get down to the nitty gritty. We’ve provided a few estimates on how much you can expect to pay determined by the type of home you live in.
