How Much Should a Furnace in Kitchener Cost? Published on September 24, 2016 Nobody looks forward to the day that they have to replace their furnace. But alas, it’s part of life, and Kitchener homeownership, and so is budgeting for a new furnace. So when that awful day finds you, where do you start? The cost of a new furnace will adjust depending on several factors, like the lifestyle and behaviors of people in the home. Health issues may also mean you need air filtration systems, which also factors into which furnace is best for your family. Even collections can help you decide which furnace is right for you. Does anyone collect art or is someone a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can impact the integrity of these products so you may have to include a whole-home humidifier in your HVAC system. Something else to take a look at is your actual home. How many windows does your home have and which direction are they facing? What sort of insulation is currently in the home and how well does it trap air indoors? How efficient the ductwork is, the preferred power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home design can help determine which furnace is ideal for your home. Hammond Plumbing & Heating will set-up a free consultation where they will visit your home and analyze your current set-up. The team will discuss your options with you and present you a free estimate on a new furnace installation based on your home’s construction and unique features. Another factor that will go into determining the price of your furnace is which business you select to perform the installation. One contractor may have the equipment you want at a lower cost, but be mindful and verify that they are licensed, bonded, and insured given something should take place while they’re on your site. If a contractor who was not insured was injured on your property, you can actually be held liable.
