Get A Replacement Furnace That Will Last For Decades
There are countless furnaces in basements across the country, and for very good reason. The efficiency and effectiveness with which furnaces can heat your home and commercial space have made them one of the most popular heating methods available. As with any other heating system, though, a high quality installation is necessary if you hope to get the best performance possible from your heater.

Why is a Professional Furnace Installation So Important?
There is a reason that professional heating service technicians go through schooling and continue to train throughout their careers. With proper installation, your furnace is a safe, reliable way to heat your home. If you allow your furnace to be installed by a novice or non–professional, though, its performance will suffer and there is the potential for safety hazards. Avoid these concerns by contacting Comfort Central to handle all your furnace installation needs.
Choosing Your New Furnace for Installation
There are many decisions that must be made prior to the installation of your new or replacement furnace. First, you must be sure that your new furnace is appropriately sized for the heating space to optimize efficiency and reliability. If your furnace is too small it will run too long and too frequently, draining energy and putting unnecessary wear and tear on the components of the system. If it is too large it will short cycle, which can seriously reduce the efficiency with which your furnace operates as well as lead to damages. With a heat load calculation from Comfort Central, you can be sure that your new furnace is a good fit for your home.
You also need to decide on a fuel choice. While oil used to be a popular choice and is still a prevalent fuel source, many people now opt for natural gas or electricity to power their furnaces. Natural gas is largely domestic and very affordable. Electricity is available in just about every home and every location. Whatever fuel you choose, gas or electricity, we can make sure that your installation gets your furnace off to the right start.
Although the cost to replace a furnace near Asheville can vary, most furnace replacement costs will fall between $2,000-$7,000. Some factors that can affect the cost for replacement include the size of your home, the size and type of furnace you want to install and the cost to remove and dispose of the old furnace.
There are several factors that go into correctly sizing a home heating system, but you can get a rough idea by doing the following:
- Calculate the square footage of your home.
- Multiply your square footage by your climate zone’s heating factor.
This should give you an estimate of the number of BTUs required to properly heat your home. However, to get the most accurate idea of what size heating system you need for your Asheville area home, a professional HVAC technician will be able to help.
Having your furnace and AC replaced together can often be cheaper than having them replaced at different times. The main way bundling installations can help to save you money is by cutting down on labor costs. If you have your units replaced together, you’ll only need to pay labor costs for one replacement instead of two. When both of your units are replaced at the same time, your system’s efficiency can also increase, lowering your energy bills and improving your indoor air quality.
