The cost of a new furnace will fluctuate depending on multiple factors, including the lifestyle and behaviors of individuals in the home. Health issues may also require air filtration systems, which also factors into which furnace is best for your home. Even hobbies can help determine which furnace is right for your family. Does someone collect art or is someone a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can alter the integrity of these things so you may consider investing in a whole-home humidifier in your HVAC system.
Something else to consider is your actual home. How many windows does your home have and which direction are they facing? What level of insulation do you current have and how effective is it at trapping air in your home? How efficient the ductwork is, the favored power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home blueprint can help determine which furnace is ideal for you.
