Heating System Cost Guide

Sep 9 ,2014

Heating System CostWhile we should still enjoy pleasant temperatures for the next few weeks, we know that it’s just a matter of time before we’re once again dealing with another brutal Minnesota winter. If you are thinking of purchasing a new heating system because the time has come to replace your old unit, there will obviously be several considerations you’ll need to keep in mind. Here’s some information on what goes into determining heating system cost so you’ll be better prepared when the time comes to shop around.

Labor Costs

When determining heating system cost, many people don’t think about labor – however, this will actually be a large portion of your overall expense. While it’s obviously important that you shop around and get quotes from different contractors, keep in mind that cheaper won’t necessarily mean better. If your system is improperly designed and installed, you’ll be dealing with problems for years to come. Not only will you be wasting a great deal of money each month due to inefficiency, you’ll probably need a lot of repairs that wouldn’t be needed if your contractor did the job right in the first place. Do some research and go with the contractor that will provide the best value, both now and in the long term.

Energy Efficiency

The more energy efficient your heating system, the less you’ll be paying each month to stay warm. A lot of people don’t consider this extremely important factor when they think about their heating system cost. However, you can find the most energy efficient model on the market and that won’t matter much if it is not installed properly. Again, you need to take your time and make the best choice possible when it comes to your contractor.

Rebates

Some local utilities offer rebates for installing energy efficient models. In addition, you may be able to take advantage of state or federal incentives that can help offset your heating system cost substantially. We can let you know what incentives may be available.
