The wide variety in pricing depends on furnace sizing, brand names, setup, and other a few smaller details.
What Identifies the Cost of a New Furnace?
When homeowners ask, "just tell how much it cost for a new gas furnace?" they are actually asking 2 different questions:
- How much is the actual furnace product
- What's the labor cost or cost of installation
The Expense of the Heating system Itself
Heating system price is identified primarily by dimension, efficiency, as well as brand name.
- Larger furnaces are more expensive
- High-efficiency furnaces will typically cost more than less efficient furnaces
- Brand-name furnaces are more expensive
Heating system installation can be extremely complex. However, when using a professional, it typically can take less than a day. Furnace installation cost relies on:
- Where in your home the heater will go as well as the difficulty in positioning your furnace.
- The style of your heater model
- What changes or repair work are required to your home's ductwork or electrical wiring to suit the heater
Having a professional Portland plumber install your new furnace makes the process quick and easy. It also ensures that everything is done correctly, ensuring the safety of your home and family and saving you time and money later on.
Should you Repair or Replace
Several property owners believe that repairing their furnace may cost them less than completely replacing it. In all honesty, the cost to change your gas furnace is often much less than it would cost you to do maintenance on your existing furnace
Consider replacing your furnace if it:
- It is 10 years or older
- Frequently needs service repairs
- Is not efficient (energy wise)
Gas Heating Furnaces
Residential gas furnaces are categorized by size and energy efficiency. Furnace size is measured using BTUs, with small furnaces starting around 40,000 BTUs and large ones running in the 135,000 BTU range.
Furnace efficiency is measured by AFUE or Annual Fuel Unit Efficiency scores. The higher a furnace's AFUE, the more efficient it is.
When exploring the answer to "how much to replace a furnace in Portland?" it is important to make sure you are considering both BTU output and AFUE. Otherwise, you may find yourself looking at the wrong furnace for your home and getting inaccurate estimates.

fast appointment. service tech was awesome.
My daughter Natalie Permenter actually ordered the service. I'm at her house during the day to keep my grandson. I was very impressed by Emanuel, the plumber that cam. He was very professional and seemed to really care about his clients. Natalie tells me the lady in the office also showed professionalism and a genuine desire to help. Emanuel was disappointed that he couldn't get the job done on day one; but promised to come back the next day. True to his word he was here bright and early. I am so impressed to finally find a company that really cares about the consumer; not just the dollar.
Exceptional service! I highly recommend them for your plumbing needs!
