How Much Does Furnace Replacement Cost?

When your home heating system is not really getting hot anymore or the unit fails to even come on, and you have checked the thermostat and the pilot light, you may be ready for a furnace replacement.

Before you order a new unit from a catalog or website, you will want to consult with a furnace replacement professional to ensure that you are selecting the best and most cost-efficient model for the size of your home and geographic region. Below we will discuss the costs involved in replacing various different types of furnace. Before you begin hunting for a new furnace, though, make sure you are up to date with the average cost to replace a furnace so you can avoid overspending. It would also be wise to brush up on your HVAC terminology so you are up to speed when speaking with a contractor.

Additional Costs To Consider

Your overall cost to replace a furnace may also include a few hidden repairs such as:

  • Replacement and installation of new ducting could cost between ?771 - ?3,855 (?6 - ?9 per linear ft).
  • Converting from an electric furnace to a gas furnace will require new ducting and piping installation which can cost between ?3,855 - ?11,566.
  • Furnace and ducting inspection costs can add about ?77, sometimes these are free.
  • Removal and disposal of the old furnace and equipment will cost around ?46. Local recycling companies also sometimes do free removals.
  • Air cleaners or humidifiers can add between ?308 - ?771.
  • Variable speed blowers, automatic adjusters, and other furnace enhancements can cost between ?385 - ?616.
  • Furnace Replacement Efficiency

    Aside from the cost of the new unit and installation, a third cost consideration goes into any furnace replacement job. This is regarding the average utility cost for powering your furnace.

    Fortunately, any furnace you may purchase has a standard rating called AFUE which stands for Annual Fuel Usage Efficiency. A moderately efficient unit will typically operate between an 80 and 85% AFUE rating, whereas a high-efficiency unit will have a rating above 85%. The higher the rating of your new unit, the higher the overall cost to replace a furnace.

    A big benefit of running an efficient furnace is the fact that you can apply for Federal Income Tax Credits. Energy Star rated furnaces and appliances can save energy, money, and the environment. Save up to 10% on energy when installing Energy Star certified furnaces.
