Furnaces provide residential home and commercial properties with much-needed heat and air circulation during the cold winter months. These appliances are also essential in that they prevent water pipes from freezing or bursting when temperatures are below the zero mark for days on end. If you’ve purchased a property that does not yet have a furnace installed and you are situated in Ashburn City, VA or the surrounding areas, we will be able to assist you.
Approximate Cost of Furnace Installation
The cost of installing a new furnace will depend on factors such as the size of the property that needs to be heated, the brand of furnace being installed and whether it is a natural gas or oil furnace that is being quoted for. Property owners who are having a furnace installed that is powered by natural gas can expect to pay anywhere from $2,500 to as much as $15,000 for the installation. Oil-powered furnaces are the substantially cheaper option in that they range from $2,000 to around the $8,000 mark. This often does not include labor or installation costs, which can range between $75 and $100 an hour.
What is Included in the Cost of Furnace Installation?
Upon receiving a quotation for installation, property owners should inspect it carefully to find out whether the price includes the following items:
- All related plumbing parts and supplied needed to complete the job
- Electrical breakers
- Sheet metal used for fitting the furnace into an existing ducting system
- Replacement thermostat (if needed)
- All labor required to install the furnace according to current safety regulations
- Ventilation and ducting pipes as needed
- Permits and inspections to confirm that the installation has been performed correctly
- The furnace unit itself
Once we have installed a new furnace, we are more than happy to provide our customers with the option of signing up for a regular maintenance plan. This will help save a lot of money on costly repairs in the long term.
Factors Affecting the Cost of Furnace Installation
One of the main factors affecting the cost of furnace installation will be its physical location. If the installation has to be performed on the ground floor of a property, the cost will be lower than if it has to be performed in a basement or attic space. Another important factor in this regard is the type of furnace being installed. Gas furnaces may cost more to install than oil furnaces; however, they usually perform a far better job of keeping a property heated as well. Other factors that will affect the cost of installation include potential modifications that may need to be made to existing ducting (if applicable) and disposal fees for old units (if applicable).
