How Much Should a Furnace Cost in Fort Myers?

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 Fort Myers homeownership, and so is purchasing a new furnace. So when that awful day finds you, where do you start?

The cost of a new furnace will adjust depending on many factors, like the lifestyle and customs of residents in the home. Health problems may also require air filtration systems, which also factors into which furnace is best for your family. Even collections can help determine which furnace is right for you. Do you collect art or is anyone a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can affect the integrity of these products so you may consider investing in a whole-home humidifier in your HVAC system.

Another thing to consider is the home itself. How many windows are there and which direction do they face? What level of insulation do you current have and how well does it trap air inside? How efficient the ductwork is, the chosen power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home design can help determine which furnace is ideal for you.

Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning will set-up a complimentary consultation where they will visit your home and assess your current set-up. They will go over your options with you and give you a no-charge estimate on a new furnace installation determined by your home’s structure and unique features.

The next thing that will affect the price of your furnace is which contractor you select to complete the install. One company may have the equipment you want at a lower cost, but be careful and make sure that they are licensed, bonded, and insured just in case something should happen while they’re on your premises. In the event a contractor was injured on your property and the contractor was not insured, you can 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 really want to know. Below are a few estimates on the amount you can expect to pay depending on the style of home you live in.
