Size Makes a Difference

We’ve written before about how the right-sized furnace can save hundreds in energy costs over the years. Well, it can also save money upfront.

Just like most things in this world, bigger means more expensive. Have your contractor perform a Manual J HVAC load test to determine the right-sized furnace for your home so you don’t waste money on a furnace that costs more upfront and increases utility bills over the years.

Depending on the furnace’s energy source, an increase in size can have different effects on a unit’s initial price. For gas furnaces, for example, a 20,000 BTU increase costs around $400 for smaller furnaces and up to $1,200 for larger furnaces, while the same capacity increase for oil furnaces stays in the $300-$600 range no matter what the unit size.
