A 20-year-old furnaces have an annual fuel utilization efficiency, or AFUE, of 78% or less, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.  AFUE is the basic energy efficiency rating system used in the HVAC industry.  Now that you can identify when a furnace installation may be necessary, as well as why having an experienced tech help you is so crucial, let’s address the burning question — why is furnace installation so expensive?


Furnace Replacement

Here are just some of the factors to consider that will ease your mind when you choose to invest in a furnace installation:


1 – Long-Term Investment

The number one reason why your furnace installation costs so much is because you are paying for a long-term investment.  Like we mentioned earlier in this article, your furnace will last up to 15 years or more.  The costs upfront cover the fact that you will have your furnace for a very long time and will likely not have to worry about major repairs for a decade once your furnace installation is paid off.


2 – Complicated Components & Parts

Although online resources can make a furnace installation seem like a breeze, you are bound to run into complications you didn’t expect with an attempt at a DIY installation.  Every furnace and household is a little different, and compatibility between the two may not always be seamless.  There are tasks that YouTube tutorials alone can’t solve, and you are MUCH better off with a professional furnace installation.  With a technician on-site to get the job done, you’ll feel relief — rather than regret.


3 – Ensure Safety & Longevity

Your furnace is a safe system — as long as it is set up and installed properly.  Without oversight and installation from an experienced technician, you may risk carbon monoxide leaks or other hazards that could put your family in danger.  The possibility of a problem of this sort is simply not worth the risk.  We strongly advise you to work with a professional furnace installation technician based on safety alone.
