Picture this scenario: It’s winter in Southeastern Michigan and the winds are blowing. You find yourself turning your thermostat up bit by bit just to stay comfortable, but you still feel chilly.
No one wants to face the prospect of having their furnace replaced. However, once it appears that you can’t get more out of your existing furnace, installing a new furnace becomes inevitable. After all, with the kinds winters we’ve been having in the Troy area, no one wants to be stuck without heat once the temperatures drop.
But where does the average homeowner start when it comes to furnace installation? Here are tips to keep in mind while navigating the prospect of new furnace installation:
- It’s a good idea to consult with an HVAC expert, to figure out the best type of furnace for your home prior to making a purchase. An expect will be able to assess your ideal heating method (such as gas or electric), the correct capacity for your home, the most efficient models, etc. This will ensure that you’re getting the most bang for your heating buck.
- When figuring the cost of furnace installation, keep in mind the cost of labor as well. It can be easy to forget while you’re busy comparing prices of different models, and could prove surprising once the final bill is tallied.
- Keep in mind that a new furnace will almost certainly perform more efficiently than your older model and can help cut your heating costs, thus saving you money over time. When looked at in this light, the upfront cost of new furnace installation becomes easier to swallow.
