Heating System & Furnace Installations
It’s the responsibility of every HVAC company to help you extend the life of your heating and air system by practicing effective furnace repair, but everything has a lifespan. When it’s time to replace your HVAC, let Poe’s Heating And Air help you make the right decision for your home.
When it comes time to replace your furnace there are several factors you need to take into account when selecting the next unit. It’s been our experience that business and homeowners don’t take the time to consider this as much as they should, and getting the wrong furnace will cost you more down the road. Here are some things to consider around furnace replacement:
Size of your home
Many of our customers don’t realize how much math is involved in the process of moving air effectively through your home. When it comes to your HVAC system, size matters. You need a unit that is big enough to heat and cool your home.
Type of Furnace
If your home has access to natural glass, you need to decide whether or not to go with an electric or gas furnace. We’ve outlined some pros and cons below.
Brand of Furnace
Like anything else, there are lower-end and high-end furnaces. We can talk to you about brands that we typically recommend and help you make an informed decision.
Our techs have the experience you need to help you understand the energy efficiency ratings each type of furnace provides. This helps you get a better read on your future utility expenses.
Furnace Installation Costs
When you’re facing a new furnace installation, it’s important to know whether the quote you have is a good deal or not. Around Loganville and the surrounding areas, the range of cost to install a new furnace is anywhere from $2,000 to as much as $7,000 or more. The average cost for a home that’s around 2200 square feet is around $4,000.
Factors that affect the cost of the installation include things like the size of your home, the brand of your new furnace, whether it’s a gas or electric furnace, energy efficiency, how quiet the unit operates, etc.
Gas Furnaces Versus Electric Furnaces
There are many homes around Loganville that still have an electric furnace, so we often find customers ask us which one is better. Like many questions, the answer is “it depends”.
For example, if you live in an all-electric house with no gas lines, you only have one choice. You have an electric furnace. No question! The truth is that in most cases, an electric furnace is cheaper to install than a gas furnace.
The choice comes when you have natural gas available to your home. That’s when you’re faced with a decision between the two options. This means it’s time for a pros and cons list:
Electric Furnace Pros:
No combustible gas so it’s less dangerous
Cheaper to install
Often more quiet to run
Has a lifespan of 20-30 years average
Electric Furnace Cons:
Is usually more expensive to operate – higher utility bills
Is slower to heat your home or office
Gas Furnace Pros:
Costs more to install
Heats your home or office quicker
Gas Furnace Cons:
Has a shorter lifespan of 10-20 years
Higher installation price
Can (but rarely) leak dangerous gas
