Your furnace/HVAC system is a key component in your home. If you need to get it replaced, you might be wondering how much it’s going to cost and if you have enough set aside in your budget to pay for it. Furnace replacement costs will vary, but here are some important details you’ll need to know so you can plan ahead on getting a good system that meets your budget guidelines.
What furnace/HVAC system does your home need?
The first thing you need to determine is what kind of furnace you need to have for your home. Most furnaces last about 20 years if they are maintained well, so if your furnace is about that old, there is a good chance that you’ll need to replace it in the near future. Most commonly, a natural gas furnace will range in price between $2,500 and $5500. Your other option is installing a ductless heat pump, which is a great option for the weather that we have in Oregon. They’re efficient and affordable with air-source heat pumps usually cost less than $4,000, but ground-source units may be significantly more, sometimes between $12,000 to $60,000 range. The benefit with ductless heat pumps is that they provide heat in the winter and air conditioning in the summer. As a homeowner, they’re a wonderful investment that will be beneficial year after year.
Is there a certain HVAC system that’s more efficient?
If you’re focused on being environmentally conscious, you’ll want to do your research on which units have the best reviews and ratings for energy efficiency. Most new models are about 95% efficient, which means that you’ll be helping conserve energy, but also decreasing your utility costs each month.
