How Much Should a Furnace Cost in Charleston?

September 24, 2016

It’s a terrible feeling when you know you’re close to having to replace your furnace. But alas, it’s part of life, and Charleston homeownership, and so is investing in a new furnace. So when that dreaded day comes, where do you start?

The value of a new furnace will fluctuate depending on many factors, including the lifestyle and customs of residents in the home. Health ailments may also require air filtration systems, which also factors into which furnace is right for you. Even collections can help determine which furnace is right for your home. Does anyone collect art or is someone 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.

The next thing to take into consideration is the home itself. What is the window count in the home and which direction do the windows face? What sort of insulation is currently installed and how efficient is it at trapping air indoors? How new the ductwork is, the chosen power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home design can help determine which furnace is best for you.

Pardee Service Experts will set-up a free consultation where they will go out to your home and evaluate 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 design and unique features.

The next thing that will determine the price of your furnace is which company you hire to perform the installation. One business may have your desired system at a lower cost, but proceed with caution and verify that they are licensed, bonded, and insured in the event something should occur while they’re on your property. You can actually be held liable if a contractor were to get injured on your property if they are not insured.

All of these factors go into determining how much a new HVAC system will cost, but let’s get down to what you really want to know. We’ve provided a few estimates on what you can expect to pay determined by the style of home you live in.
