What does the word “furnace” mean to you?
Big? Noisy? A lot of work to maintain? Probably.
But the truth is, modern furnaces are anything but big, noisy and tough to maintain. Just the opposite, in fact.
Today’s furnaces have improved in each aspect – from form to function to efficiency. Newer gas furnaces actually can save a homeowner up to 50 percent in operating costs over a furnace that’s 10+ years old. Today’s furnaces feature minimum AFUE ratings (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) of 80 percent or more (some top-of-line models have AFUE ratings of up to 97 percent). In short – the furnace you buy today will be highly energy-efficient, cost-effective, and is likely to last quite a while.

It costs about $100-$300 to tune-up a furnace. A furnace tune-up usually includes the following:
- A cleaning of your furnace.
- An inspection and lubrication of your furnace’s parts.
- A replacement of your furnace’s air filter.
Some furnace tune-ups may also include minor repairs. To get the most out of having your furnace tuned up, you should have it done once a year before the heating season. To get your furnace tuned up, contact us today.
It costs around $5,000-$10,000 to replace a heating and cooling system. The overall cost can vary depending on:

Getting your heating and cooling system replaced has many benefits such as better heating and cooling and lower energy costs. Additionally, having your HVAC system replaced can also increase the value of your home. To get your HVAC system replaced, call us today.
A few things you should think about when deciding to repair or replace your furnace are:
- The age of your furnace.
- How well your furnace heats your home.
- The cost to repair your furnace.
If the cost to repair your furnace is more than half the cost to replace it and your furnace is nearing the end of its service life, it is more cost effective to have your furnace replaced. To get your furnace repaired or replaced, give us a call today.
