How Much Should a Furnace Cost in Albany?

September 24, 2016

It’s a terrible feeling when you know you’re close to having to replace your furnace. Unfortunately, it’s part of life, and Albany 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 fluctuate depending on several factors, such as the lifestyle and behaviors of residents in the home. Health issues may also mean you need air filtration systems, which also factors into which furnace is ideal for your home. Even interests can help determine which furnace is right for your home. Does anyone collect art or is anyone a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can affect the integrity of these products so you may have to include a whole-home humidifier in your heating and cooling system.

Something else to take a look at 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 indoors? How efficient the ductwork is, the preferred power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home design can help determine which furnace is best for your family.

Roland J. Down Service Experts will set-up a complimentary consultation where they will visit your home and assess your current set-up. The team will go over your options with you and provide 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 select to install your system. 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 happen while they’re on your site. If a contractor who was not insured was injured on your property, you can actually be held liable.

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