Furnaces are one of the oldest residential heating systems. Your furnace plays a crucial role in maintaining the comfort and livability of your home during winter. A functional furnace transfers heat to air before it is circulated through the blower. A dysfunctional furnace fails to perform this function. From clogged filters to tripped circuit breakers, there are a number of reasons why furnaces stop working. Getting a malfunctioning furnace replaced should top your priority list. If, however, your furnace is beyond repair or nearing the end of its service life, getting it replaced makes more sense. One of the most common questions we get from homeowners is what is the cost of replacing and installing a new furnace? We attempt to answer this question.
