How Much Should a Furnace Cost in Philadelphia?

September 24, 2016

It’s a terrible feeling when you know you’re close to having to replace your furnace. Sadly, it’s part of life, and Philadelphia homeownership, and so is purchasing a new furnace. So when that awful day finds you, where do you start?

The value of a new furnace will vary depending on several factors, like the lifestyle and behaviors of individuals in the home. Health problems may also result in air filtration systems, which also helps you decide which furnace is best for your home. Even collections can factor into which furnace is right for your home. Does anyone collect art or are you a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can impact the integrity of these products so you may think about purchasing a whole-home humidifier in your heating and cooling system.

The next thing to take into consideration is the home’s design. How many windows does your home have and which direction are they facing? What sort of insulation is currently in the home and how efficient is it at trapping air in your home? How efficient the ductwork is, the chosen power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home layout can go into deciding which furnace is right for your home.


Stallion Heating Plumbing Air Conditioning will set-up a no-charge consultation where they will visit your home and analyze your current set-up. The team will discuss your options with you and provide you a no-charge estimate on a new furnace installation based on your home’s design and unique characteristics.

Something else that will go into determining the price of your furnace is which contractor you choose to complete the install. One company may have your desired system at a lower cost, but be careful and confirm that they are licensed, bonded, and insured given something should happen while they’re on your premises. In the event a contractor was injured on your property and the contractor was not insured, you can be held liable.

All of these things go into determining how much a new HVAC system will cost, but let’s get down to the nitty gritty. We have a few estimates on what you can expect to pay determined by the type of home you live in.
