What Does a New Furnace Cost in NC?

In the market for a new furnace? Before you buy your new furnace, make sure to contact a trusted HVAC professional, like the team at Comfort First Heating & Cooling.

We can inspect your current furnace and confirm that a new furnace is your only option. Who knows. You might need some less expensive heating system repairs instead.

Major furnace repairs can cost up to $2,000. For just a few thousand dollars more you could replace your furnace with a new, more efficient unit.

Assuming that you’re 100% certain that you need a new furnace, you’re no doubt wondering how much it’ll cost.

Of course, this isn’t a one-size-fits-all kind of situation, but here are a few things to look for, and expect, as you look to purchase a new furnace in North Carolina.

Your Energy Source

The #1 factor to consider when determining your furnace cost is the energy source (electric, gas, oil). Typically, electric furnaces are the least expensive.

On average expect to pay $3,500 – $10,000* for the type of HVAC system needed in North Carolina. It all depends on a number of factors!

The Furnace Efficiency

Prices greatly differ between “standard” and “high” efficiency. Why is that?

Furnaces with higher AFUE ratings run more efficiently than their counterparts, and therefore cost more to purchase upfront. The key term here is ‘upfront’ because, in the end, you end up saving more money on your utility costs with a higher efficiency furnace.

Our team can help you figure out your best options based on your immediate, and long-term budget goals.

The Size of Your Home

When we work with a client, we talk at length about the importance of getting the right-sized furnace for their home. It can save them hundreds of dollars in energy costs over the years.

Well, it can also save you money upfront as well.

As you would expect, bigger home need larger HVAC systems to run efficiently. Our team will perform a Manual J HVAC load test to determine the right-sized furnace for your home. That way you don’t waste money on a piece of equipment that costs more upfront and increases your utility bills over the years.

Installation Cost

Installation costs include the time it takes to install the furnace, where it’s being installed, how difficult it is to install, and whether new ductwork needs to be installed.

Even if you have ductwork, it’s possible that you’ll need new ductwork because your new system is likely more efficient.

Typically, HVAC systems last from 15-20 years, but they can last longer with the proper maintenance. Although HVAC systems tend to have a long life, you may need to have them replaced sooner if you notice your energy bills rising, if the units start to lose efficiency or if the units frequently break down. Another sign you may need to have your HVAC units replaced sooner is if the cost to have them repaired is higher than the cost for replacement would be.
