Replace or Renovate: Pricing a new furnace?

Gas furnaces have an average life expectancy of twenty years. By 10-15 years, most Connecticut 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 Shelton?

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 Shelton 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

This was my first time with 1-800-Plumber Air of Pearland. I called with a minor issue with the dishwasher drain hose and asked that a tech be dispatched on Saturday so that I could be home from work. Chad was scheduled between 8am & 10am today (Sat) and arrived just before 9am. Chad was very knowledgeable and explained to me the entire process. He also answered my many many questions about what he was doing as he was doing it. I'm a smart guy but know very little about plumbing. I felt very comfortable with Chad doing the repair. The long and the short of it, 1-800-Plumber Air of Pearland has a new longtime customer and I will request that Chad be sent if possible the next time I have a plumbing issue.
