The cost of a furnace installation can vary depending on what type of furnace you are going to purchase. Variables include the efficiency level of the furnace, its brand and model, and whether it’s electric, natural gas, propane or oil. The cost of furnace installation also can be affected by how easy your current furnace is to access and remove.
You can prepare for this large upfront cost by calculating the probable useful service life of your current furnace. You can figure the range is between 15 and 20 years, with some lasting past 25. The higher range assumes regular professional maintenance, energy-saving usage and winters of average severity and length. Then begin a savings plan far enough ahead of time where you can significantly defray the upfront cost of purchasing and installing the new furnace. You can also assume that your replacement furnace will cost significantly less to operate, month to month, because of greater efficiency.
Realizing Efficiency Benefits
As stated, your new furnace is going to be a lot more efficient than your old one. The energy bills will decline, sometimes by quite a bit. You can plan to pay down the cost of borrowing for your new furnace with those monthly savings.
Cutting back just a little bit on luxury items for a couple of months before your furnace is installed can help increase your savings, and allow you to more readily see how much you will save on energy costs. The longer ahead of time you know you’re going to need a furnace installed, the longer you will have to prepare for it.
