What Does a Boiler or Furnace Replacement Cost?

furnace replacement costDetermining the most accurate boiler or furnace replacement cost depends on the efficiency of the unit, the size of the unit, the level of features and technology you choose, as well as your heating contractor. We’ll cover these four factors below.

But first, let’s make sure you really need to replace your furnace…

Do I (really) need to replace my boiler or furnace?

One of the most popular questions we hear at Brown’s is, “Do I need to replace my furnace or should I just repair it?” We typically respond by asking you three questions:

  • Is your furnace or boiler over 15 years old?
  • Are repair costs starting to creep up toward 50% of the cost of a new unit?
  • Do you want to upgrade your heating efficiency?

If the answer is yes to any of the above, we advise replacement over repair. In that case, let’s discuss furnace replacement cost factors, so you’re well prepared.

Furnace Efficiency

Furnace efficiency can have a big impact on cutting heating bills. Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) matter. In fact, newer models with higher efficiencies capture up to 97% of your fuel’s energy which can cut bills by up to 20%!

Bottom line? The higher the unit’s AFUE, the more furnace replacement will cost — BUT you will experience lower monthly bills to help justify some of this extra cost. Most new furnaces and boilers start at the 80% base of efficiency now—the higher you go, the better the AFUE is—the efficiency rating.

Furnace Replacement Size

Size can impact your furnace replacement cost. Bigger is not always better. If your old model was too large or too small for your space, you could have been wasting money on higher-than-necessary energy bills, shortened lifespans and too-frequent repairs. Therefore, it’s important that your replacement is sized accurately based on the square footage, design and layout of your space.

Bottom line? More BTU output = a bigger furnace replacement cost.

Features of the Unit

You want more bells and whistles? You’ll need to pay for that. From noise reduction technology to smart thermostats, home comfort has come a long way over the years.

Bottom line? The more features and tech you choose for your furnace replacement, the more a replacement will cost you.
