Everybody dreads the day when a furnace replacement becomes necessary. Should that day come sooner than you expected, where do you start?
The cost of a new furnace varies depending on many factors, like the lifestyle and habits of individuals in the home. Health ailments may require air filtration systems, which also factor into which furnace is best for you. Your interests can help decide which furnace is right for your family. For example, if you are an art collector or a wine connoisseur, humidity levels can affect your experiences. In this case, you may think about purchasing an HVAC system with a whole-home humidifier.
Overall Home Design Factors
The next factor to consider is your home’s overall design. How many windows are in your home and which direction do they face? What insulation is currently installed in your attic and exterior walls? How efficiently does it trap air inside? How well installed is your ductwork? Do you want to use gas, solar, or electricity as your furnace power source? What is the layout of your home?

Be choosy with which contractor you select to perform the installation. While one company may offer to install your desired system at a lower cost, proceed with caution. Before you hire a contractor, verify that they are licensed, bonded, and insured just in case any accidents happen while they are on your premises. If a contractor is injured on the job on your property and was not insured, you can be personally held liable.
