It’s never fun thinking about having to replace your furnace. Sadly, it’s part of life, and Kitchener homeownership, and so is investing in a new furnace. So when that scary day arrives, where do you start?
The cost of a new furnace will vary depending on multiple factors, including the lifestyle and habits of people in the home. Health problems may also mean you need air filtration systems, which also helps you decide which furnace is right for your home. Even collections can help you decide which furnace is right for your family. Do you collect art or is anyone a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can impact the integrity of these things so you may consider investing in a whole-home humidifier in your HVAC system.
The next thing to take into consideration is the home itself. How many windows does your home have and which direction are they facing? What type of insulation is currently installed and how effective is it at trapping air indoors? How efficient the ductwork is, the preferred power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home blueprint can help determine which furnace is right for you.

They will review your options with you and present you a free estimate on a new furnace installation based on their review of your home’s construction and unique characteristics.
Another factor that will determine the price of your furnace is which contractor you select to complete the install. One business may have your desired system at a lower cost, but be mindful and verify that they are licensed, bonded, and insured just in case something should happen while they’re on your site. If a contractor who was not insured was injured on your property, you can actually be held liable.
