Are you considering upgrading to a new boiler or furnace for your home? If so, you have a lot of things to consider, including the cost. Swezey is here to help! We sell, install, and service high-efficiency heating systems, and our affordable service plans help protect them with regular maintenance tune-ups and coverage of many parts and labor costs for repairs.
Some brands of boilers and furnaces cost more than others. But there’s more than just the name you must look at, and we’re here to help. We will go through your options to make sure that you get the best quality and energy efficiency you can afford in your new heating system.
As you have likely seen in the news in recent months, supply chain issues lingering from the COVID-19 pandemic are plaguing a wide range of industries. The HVAC industry has been affected as well, between labor shortages and shortages in materials such as copper and aluminum.
Swezey has worked hard to maintain reliable access to top-quality heating systems from our suppliers. If your home’s furnace or boiler is getting on in years and not performing as smoothly or efficiently, it is wise not to wait to begin the process of upgrading to a new one. We’ll come out and look over your furnace or boiler and give you a FREE estimate for a new one.
Where your heating system is located in your home can have an impact on the cost of installing it. The cost of installation may be higher if it is difficult to install in the desired location. Since a larger space may need a bigger unit, the size of your home can greatly impact both the price of the heating system as well as installation. The price will also be affected if the new furnace or boiler requires more space or is moved to a different location in your home.
If you currently have an electric furnace and are looking to upgrade to the efficiency and comfort of an oil-fired heating system, for example, it’s going to cost more. You will have to add a heating oil tank to your home and oil lines to your home and possibly make other adjustments.
If you have added finished space to your home since you last replaced your boiler or furnace, such as a home addition or a finished basement or attic, we’ll make sure that your new heating system is able to meet that added need. You will need to add ductwork to those spaces if you hadn’t already, which will add to your cost.
Recent years have shown us the importance of clean, healthy air in your home. If you are upgrading to a new furnace, you may choose to add indoor air quality equipment such as air purifiers or humidity control, which will be an additional expense.
