How Much Should a Furnace Cost in Austin?

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 Austin homeownership, and so is investing in a new furnace. So when that awful day finds you, where do you start?

The value of a new furnace will fluctuate depending on many factors, such as the lifestyle and habits of residents in the home. Health ailments may also result in air filtration systems, which also factors into which furnace is right for your home. Even collections can help you decide which furnace is right for your family. Does anyone collect art or is anyone a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can impact the integrity of these things so you may have to include a whole-home humidifier in your heating and air conditioning system.

Something else to take into consideration is the home’s design. How many windows are there and which direction do they face? What sort of insulation is currently in the home and how well does it trap air in your home? How new the ductwork is, the chosen power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home design can affect which furnace is ideal for you.

Strand Brothers Service Experts will set-up a free consultation where they will visit your home and evaluate your current set-up. The technician will review your options with you and give you a complimentary estimate on a new furnace installation based on their review of your home’s structure and unique characteristics.

Another factor that will go into determining the price of your furnace is which company you hire to complete the install. One contractor may have your desired system at a lower cost, but be mindful and confirm that they are licensed, bonded, and insured given something should happen while they’re on your property. If a contractor who was not insured was injured on your property, you can actually be held liable.

All of these things go into determining how much a new heating and air conditioning system will cost, but let’s get down to what you really want to know. We have a few estimates on what you can expect to pay depending on the type of home you live in.
