Gas Furnace Prices

Gas Furnace costs, just like almost all major appliances, are likely to continue dropping throughout 2011. The main reason for furnace prices to drop is similar to everything else, and a direct result of the economy. Companies are dropping pricing to move older products out the door and get ready for new model year products! When you combine the need to stimulate spending with the federal energy tax credits, it means people like you and I get the best price on gas furnaces!

Gas Furnaces by Brand

While the installation costs associated with a gas furnace will vary from one HVAC  company to the next, there are several common factors that won’t affect the bottom line price of a new gas furnace! One of the most static factors, is in the brand name or manufacturer you decide you want to have installed. Just like almost every other type of product out there, different gas furnace brands come with a different price tag based on:

  • Quality of the Gas Furnace Parts
  • History of the Brand Name and Industry Recognition
  • Willingness of the Buyers Market to Pay a Higher Price

Effect of Output Size on Furnace Wholesale Prices

The larger the Furnace – the more it’s going to cost!

A general statement where size and cost are concerned, is that larger furnaces are naturally going to cost more!
