How much does it cost to replace a furnace in Ontario?
The cost of having your furnace replaced in Ontario varies for a variety of reasons, but can cost anywhere from around $3,000 to $10,000. This includes the removal and installation, plus the cost of the unit itself. This is a huge difference in pricing and we’ll talk about it in more detail throughout this article.
One thing is for sure, a furnace is a huge and important investment and it’s important to take good care of it. Pro Duct Solutions will remove your old furnace and expertly install the new one, making sure that your new furnace is handled properly and your investment is protected.
What kind of furnace are you looking for?
The cost of replacing your furnace is going to depend upon whether you’re looking to get a gas or electric furnace. The cost of electric furnaces is generally lower than the cost for gas furnaces and the installation is usually easier which means that it costs less for the labour too.
Next, you’ll have to consider what features you want your furnace to have. There are single stage furnaces which are the least expensive type of furnace. They only have one setting, a single stage furnace will heat your house on full blast until it reaches the desired temperature, then it shuts off. A two stage furnace has two heat settings which allows you to have greater control of the heat level in your home. The most expensive type of furnace is the variable speed furnace, or modulating furnace. It gives you the best control of the heat level and can be the most fuel efficient.
What kind of furnace do you have currently?
If you’re switching from an electric furnace to a gas furnace or vice versa, there may be a small additional cost for the installation. This would simply be to set up a new fuel line to make sure that your furnace is being powered properly.
Where is the furnace located?
The installation price will vary depending on how easy the furnace is to access. If the furnace needs to be removed from and installed into a crawlspace, the labour is likely to cost more as this makes the work a little trickier. If the furnace is being removed from and installed into a spacious, tidy basement, there is likely to be little effect on the labour costs.
Do you need modern building code upgrades?
If it’s been a while since your last furnace was installed, there could be some extra work required to ensure that everything is done according to modern building codes. Considering that some furnaces can last up to twenty years, this might be the case. Of course, any and all work needing to be done on your home, as well as associated costs, will be discussed with you beforehand.
What are your existing ducts like?
If you think about the upgrades that have happened with cell phones over the past fifteen years, then you won’t be surprised that modern furnaces are a lot different than older models. Furnaces these days tend to be smaller, more efficient, and easier to control when it comes to heat level. It’s entirely possible that your ductwork may need a bit of an upgrade in order to maximize the efficiency of your new system.
How large of a building are you wanting to heat?
Furnaces, much like air conditioners, are designed to suit different areas. If you have a larger home, you’ll need a larger furnace which generally costs more than a smaller one. If you’re looking to heat a commercial property, this will also add to the cost as there tends to be more open space that needs to be heated.
If you’re thinking of installing or removing a furnace yourself, there are a few things to be aware of. First of all, any work done by anyone other than a registered technician can void your warranty. You may save money by installing it yourself, but then all repairs will be out of pocket in the future. An improperly installed furnace can be expensive and dangerous. Technicians are trained to install furnaces for maximum energy efficiency, a DIY installation can severely affect efficiency and cost more when it comes to energy bills. Furnaces are large appliances and require many moving parts, improper installation could lead to electrical fires or gas leaks, both of which are incredibly dangerous.
