We don't need to remind anyone who lives in Rose Tree Upper Providence Township how cold it can get during the winter. Although the winter season is one of the reasons why living in the Midwest is so appealing, it also serves as a pleasant reminder of the importance of your home's furnace. In short, a furnace that isn't working properly or that needs to be replaced can be a major issue. Since 1980, PJ MAC HVAC has been meeting our customers' heating needs, and we understand that HVAC equipment is not inexpensive. So, if you find yourself in the unfortunate situation of needing to purchase a new furnace, know that we are here to assist.
The first step is to decide which type of furnace you need. You probably haven't bought a furnace in a long time (if ever), because most furnaces last between 15 and 20 years. This means that heating technology today is very different from what it was a few decades ago, especially in terms of efficiency. Sizing is also important; a unit that is either too small or too large will not function properly or efficiently. Square footage of houses, insulation standards, and the number and location of windows are all considered when sizing. That being said, here are some choices and a rough estimate of their costs:
Furnace powered by natural gas. Natural gas is the most commonly used fuel in residential furnaces. A typical productivity model would cost you between $3,000 and $6,000.
The use of an oil furnace. They are still available but are less powerful than gas furnaces. The price ranges from $2,500 to $5,000.
Thermostat. This alternative is gaining popularity because it can heat and cool by removing air from the home and replacing it with air from the outside or, in the case of geothermal technology, the earth. The cost can vary from $3,500 to $9,000.
Installation costs must be weighed since they may significantly increase the total bill. Costs may be greatly increased by factors such as difficult-to-reach ductwork or ductwork repairs/modifications, a complicated floor plan, or a larger, more energy-efficient unit. The costs of technician labor are also included in the number. To protect your investment, furnace installations should include two warranties. The first is a manufacturer's warranty, and the second is a warranty given by the HVAC contractor who installed the system. Make certain that you obtain these warranties in writing and that you understand precisely what each warranty covers and pays for.
