    What factors affect the cost of a furnace installation?

    • Efficiency of the unit: Furnaces come in a variety of efficiency scores, known as AFUE ratings. AFUE is important because it determines the cost-effectiveness of running the system. You can save on energy bills with a higher AFUE system, but the system itself costs more upfront to buy. The good news is there are high-efficiency systems for every budget, and an Golden Rule engineer can help you find the perfect one.
    • Unit add-ons: With the advent of smart home thermostats, whole-home air cleaners, and climate controls via zoning, customers have more options than ever to upgrade their furnace systems. All of these come at additional costs of course. But you’ll never catch a Golden Rule System Engineer trying to sell you something you don’t need. We only bring them up because they’re cool to have!
    • Home renovations: Your new furnace system may require additional renovations such as ductwork repairs or alterations to plumbing and electrical fixtures. The good news is we have service divisions that can help with all of it, so you won’t need to juggle multiple contractors.

    Furnace Installation FAQ

    If you know you want a furnace in your home, you need to figure out what type you want to install. When you contact Golden Rule for service, we can help guide you through the entire process.

    There are three basic energy sources that your furnace can use to heat your home, including:
    • Gas: Natural gas is a highly effective and energy-efficient source of energy for your heating system. We can provide comprehensive gas piping in addition to the furnace itself.
    • Propane: If you don’t have a gas line hookup near your home, then you may want to opt for propane, which can be stored in a tank outside the home.
    • Electricity: The conversion of electric to thermal energy is the cleanest possible energy source, but it may not be the most cost-effective. Nevertheless, for homes without gas piping installed, electric furnaces make a viable option.

    • Age: Check when your furnace was installed. If it’s over 10, it may be time to replace it. Although a well-cared-for furnace can last more than two decades, this is usually the point where it will start to decline steeply. You’ve already gotten a great service life from it, and you should be glad it lasted so long.
    • Rising heating bills: A furnace that is coming to the end of its mechanical life will start to drain more power than it should, and you’ll see this reflected in your utility bills. If repairs don’t reverse the rising costs, ask the technicians about replacing the system.
    • Loud operation: A single strange noise from a furnace often points toward a malfunction. But constant loud noises whenever it’s running usually warns that the system is too worn down to keep.
    • Incessant repair needs: Are you paying more than $500 in repairs each year to keep the furnace running? That’s too high, and it’s time to think about a replacement.
