Replacing your furnace is an investment that requires some research and planning. If 2023 is the year that you’re planning to install a new heating system in your home or business, there are a few factors to consider when you’re being a proactive planner. Here are some tips.
#1: Think about how old your existing furnace is.
The average furnace lasts upwards of 15 years. If your system is about that old, it’s probably time to replace it. If you’re not quite there yet, but want to start looking at your options, now’s the time. Take a close look at how the technology has changed in that time. Then, research how big of a system you need and start gathering price quotes for comparison. At Specialty Heating and Cooling, we’re glad to talk about your furnace options and provide a quote that works within your budget.
#2: Determine what you need.
Most homeowners or commercial building owners aren’t sure which size furnace they need. That’s where we can help! We can talk you through your different options – gas furnaces, ductless heat pumps, heat pumps, and more! One of our experts can look at your existing system to see which is the most energy efficient and budget-conscious option for you.
#3: Compare prices.
Gas furnaces usually cost between $5,000 and $10,000. Ductless heat pumps can range from $6,000 to $14,000, depending on the design of the system and how big your house or business is. Heat pumps generally cost between $8,000 and $15,000. They are one of our most popular choices because they provide both heating AND cooling in one system. This is not only an energy efficient option, but it’s convenient for the varying weather we get in Oregon. In just a touch of a button, you can switch between heat and cool.

#4: Know what specials are offered.
Life is expensive and we understand that most of our customers are looking for the best price available. That’s why we regularly offer specials that can save you big money on furnaces! We will also let you know if there are any energy rebates, tax credits, or other promotions that are currently running. This could save you hundreds – maybe even thousands – of dollars!
So, no matter what type of system works best for you, we provide a variety of convenient financing options that make paying for your system easy.
