A furnace can last up to 20 years, but all furnaces will eventually reach the end of their lifespan. If your furnace needs replacement, call Trust 1 Services for professional installation of a new furnace or heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system.
Furnace Installation Options
There are three main types of furnaces: oil, gas, and electric. Oil and gas furnaces rely on combustion and are typically more powerful, but they can potentially pose more of a fire risk if they do not undergo routine maintenance. The average cost for a furnace, including furnace installation, is several thousand dollars, with electric furnaces being slightly less expensive than gas or oil furnaces. The reduced price of electric furnaces is due to lower furnace costs and lower installation costs.
Furnace replacement costs vary based on many factors, including the size of the furnace and its energy star rating. More energy-efficient furnaces will cost more than less energy-efficient models, but federal tax credits and other governmental incentives could reduce the cost of models with a high Energy Star rating. The energy efficiency program for Massachusetts, Mass Saves, offers rebates of up to $1750 for the replacement of heating and air conditioning systems with energy-efficient models.
Before choosing a furnace, it is important to consider the effect of the furnace on your energy bills. A more expensive furnace could wind up saving you money in the long run. Electric furnaces tend to work more efficiently with heat pumps, while gas and oil furnaces work best with forced air and central air heating systems.
If you choose Trust 1 Services for your new furnace installation, you will discuss the specifics of your house and heating needs to select the type and model of furnace that works best for you. Furnace installation can be done in one day, although the process may take a little longer if the newer model’s hookups are different from the old one. As with any furnace, we recommend that you have the furnace serviced each fall to extend its life and ensure that it is operating safely.
Trust 1 Services offers installation services for heating systems beyond the furnace, such as HVAC systems, water heaters, and heat pumps. When you call Trust 1 Services about repairing or replacing your heating system, a licensed heating and HVAC professional will explain the options and help you develop a plan that suits your needs. Replacing a heating system is a significant investment in energy efficiency, safety, and quality of life. If you don’t have money in your budget to replace your heating system, ask about our payment plans and financing options.
Keep in mind that buying a heating system with a high energy star rating could save you money on heating bills, which could in part offset the cost of the system. If you are about to sell your home, consider that a new heating system can be a selling point for homebuyers and could significantly reduce the amount of time that your house spends on the market.
HVAC systems are more complex than traditional furnaces because they consist of both heating and cooling systems, and the ductwork and ventilation system distributes hot and cool air throughout the house. HVAC installation can cost several thousand dollars, above $10,000 for larger systems with high-end brands. Installation of an HVAC system is likely to take three days to install, slightly longer than for a furnace.
A heat pump is an energy-efficient and cost-effective alternative to traditional HVAC and central air systems for moderate climates. Heat pumps work by moving hot and cool air to heat your home in winter and keep it cool in summer. Heat pumps can be part of central air systems as well as ductless mini-split systems. Mini-split heat pumps deliver hot or cool air to individual rooms of the house, rather than distributing air through a duct system that connects all rooms. The average cost for heat pump installation is less than for HVAC systems but can be as much as $10,000 for a larger home.
