Replace or Renovate: Pricing a new furnace?

Gas furnaces have an average life expectancy of twenty years. By 10-15 years, most Oregon homeowners begin thinking about the cost to replace a new furnace. You may hear yourself say "how much does a new furnace cost?" or better yet "is it much better to fix my heating system or replace it?"

Check out our quick overview below to answer some of those underlying questions.

How Much Does a New Heater Cost in Portland?

How much is a gas furnace with setup? Typically, gas heaters range between $2,000 and $6,000.

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

Installation

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
  • Labor

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.

Experienced Portland plumbing and HVAC professionals can answer questions like "why does it cost so much to install a furnace?" and help you pick the right furnace for your needs.

Emanuel came out to inspect why our commode was not flushing properly. After an inspection he describer the options. Since the commode was over 40 years old we picked the option to replace the commode with a new one. He Asked several questions about what we would like and the showed us two options. We picked the one that we liked and he obtained the commode from the ware house and installed it the same afternoon.. He completed the installation and did a great clean up of the area and answered answered all of our questions. I fully recommend Emanuel and 1-800-Plumber of Pearland
