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. Unfortunately, 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 vary depending on many factors, including the lifestyle and customs of people in the home. Health ailments may also mean you need air filtration systems, which also helps determine which furnace is best for your home. Even collections can factor into which furnace is right for your home. Do you collect art or are you a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can affect the integrity of these products so you may have to include a whole-home humidifier in your HVAC system.

Another thing to take into consideration is your actual home. How many windows are there and which direction do they face? What sort of insulation do you current have and how efficient is it at trapping air indoors? How new the ductwork is, the preferred power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home layout can help determine which furnace is right for your home.

Pardee Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning will set-up a complimentary consultation where they will go out to your home and assess your current set-up. They will review your options with you and provide you a no-charge estimate on a new furnace installation based on your home’s design and unique traits.

The next thing that will determine the price of your furnace is which contractor you hire to install your system. One business may have the system you want at a lower cost, but be careful and verify that they are licensed, bonded, and insured in the event something should occur while they’re on your premises. 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 influencing how much a new HVAC system will cost, but let’s get down to the nitty gritty. Below are a few estimates on what you can expect to pay determined by the style of home you live in.
