It’s a terrible feeling when you know you’re close to having to replace your furnace. But alas, it’s part of life, and Albany 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 fluctuate depending on several factors, such as the lifestyle and behaviors of people in the home. Health ailments may also mean you need air filtration systems, which also factors into which furnace is ideal for you. Even interests can help determine which furnace is right for your home. Do you collect art or is anyone a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can impact the integrity of these products so you may consider investing in a whole-home humidifier in your HVAC system.
Something else to take into consideration is the home’s design. How many windows does your home have and which direction are they facing? What type of insulation is currently installed and how well does it trap air inside? How well installed the ductwork is, the preferred power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home design can affect which furnace is best for your family.

The team will go over your options with you and give you a free estimate on a new furnace installation based on their review of your home’s construction and unique features.
The next thing that will determine the price of your furnace is which contractor you choose to perform the installation. One business may have the system you want at a lower cost, but be careful and verify that they are licensed, bonded, and insured in the event something should happen while they’re on your site. You can actually be held liable if a contractor were to get injured on your property if they are not insured.
