It’s furnace season once again, and for homeowners whose furnaces are too old or don’t function properly, it’s also time to think about getting a new one. But what model is best for your home? What does a furnace installation cost? The experts at Gross Heating and Air Conditioning have the inside scoop—here are the factors that determine furnace installation expenses.


There is no “one size fits all” when it comes to heating and cooling units—you need a heating expert to measure your home so you get a properly sized system. This step is crucial to ensuring you save money both on installation costs and on your energy bill down the line—a unit that’s too big won’t heat your home correctly, and one that’s too small will work harder than it should to circulate air. So if you have a bigger house, you’ll need a bigger heating system to keep it warm, which will affect your furnace installation cost.

Energy Efficiency

The energy efficiency of heating systems is measured by Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE), which tells you how much energy a furnace draws is converted into heat. The higher the AFUE, the more energy efficient your system is. While these models will save you money on energy bills in the long run, they also cost more to install than units with a lower AFUE.

Desired Comfort Level

How comfortable you want your home to be also affects price. If all you want is a furnace that will heat your home, you can opt for a more basic model. But if you want a unit with different fan speeds—which can run slower during milder weather to save you money and enable better air circulation even when the system isn’t running—you’ll end up paying extra for it.

How Long You Plan to Be in Your Home

Believe it or not, your future moving plans can affect how much you pay for a new furnace. If you experience a system breakdown but are planning to live in your home for several more years, it makes sense to invest in a higher-quality unit that has more bells and whistles that you can enjoy long-term. But if you’re planning to find a new home in the near future, you’re better off installing a more basic model—there’s no sense in paying for features that you won’t be around to use.
