It’s a terrible feeling when you know you’re close to having to replace your furnace. But alas, it’s part of life, and Knoxville homeownership, and so is budgeting for a new furnace. So when that dreaded day comes, where do you start?
The cost of a new furnace will vary depending on multiple factors, including the lifestyle and behaviors of individuals in the home. Health issues may also mean you need air filtration systems, which also helps determine which furnace is best for your home. Even hobbies can factor into which furnace is right for you. 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 heating and cooling system.
Something else to consider is the home itself. How many windows does your home have and which direction are they facing? What level of insulation do you current have and how efficient 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.

The team will go over your options with you and present you a complimentary estimate on a new furnace installation based on their review of your home’s structure and unique features.
Something else that will go into determining the price of your furnace is which contractor you select to complete the install. One business may have the equipment you want at a lower cost, but be careful and verify that they are licensed, bonded, and insured given something should occur while they’re on your property. If a contractor who was not insured was injured on your property, you can actually be held liable.
