How Much Should a Furnace Cost in Birmingham?

September 24, 2016

It’s never fun thinking about having to replace your furnace. But alas, it’s part of life, and Birmingham homeownership, and so is budgeting for a new furnace. So when that dreaded day comes, where do you start?

The cost of a new furnace will vary depending on multiple factors, like the lifestyle and habits of people in the home. Health issues may also require air filtration systems, which also factors into which furnace is right for your family. Even hobbies can help determine which furnace is right for your home. Do you collect art or is someone a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can impact the integrity of these things 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. What is the window count in the home and which direction do the windows face? What type of insulation is currently installed and how efficient is it at trapping air indoors? How new the ductwork is, the chosen power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home blueprint can help determine which furnace is ideal for your home.

Norrell Service Experts will set-up a free consultation where they will go out to your home and analyze your current set-up. The technician will go over your options with you and give you a no-charge estimate on a new furnace installation based on your home’s construction and unique characteristics.

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

All of these factors go into deciding how much a new heating and air conditioning system will cost, but let’s get down to the nitty gritty. We have a few estimates on what you can expect to pay based on the type of home you live in.
