How Much Should a Furnace Cost in Birmingham?

September 24, 2016

Nobody looks forward to the day that they have to replace their furnace. Unfortunately, it’s part of life, and Birmingham homeownership, and so is investing in a new furnace. So when that dreaded day comes, where do you start?

The price of a new furnace will vary depending on multiple factors, like the lifestyle and habits of people in the home. Health ailments may also mean you need air filtration systems, which also helps determine which furnace is best for your family. Even hobbies can help determine which furnace is right for your home. Does anyone collect art or is someone a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can affect the integrity of these items so you may consider investing in a whole-home humidifier in your heating and cooling system.

Another thing to consider is the home’s design. How many windows are there and which direction do they face? What type of insulation is currently installed and how effective is it at trapping air indoors? How new the ductwork is, the chosen power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home blueprint can affect which furnace is ideal for you.

Norrell Service Experts will set-up a complimentary consultation where they will go out to your home and analyze your current set-up. They will review your options with you and give you a no-charge estimate on a new furnace installation determined by your home’s structure and unique characteristics.

The next thing that will go into determining the price of your furnace is which company you select to complete the install. One contractor may have the system you want at a lower cost, but be mindful and make sure that they are licensed, bonded, and insured given something should happen while they’re on your property. You can actually be held liable if a contractor were to get injured on your property if they are not insured.
