Cost to Replace Furnace by Province

The vast majority of regions in Canada have one thing in common: very cold winters. Investing in a new or upgraded furnace that works efficiently and economically for your home is a necessity in our great and chilly country.

The following will give you a better idea of what it should cost to replace your old furnace according to the province you live. We have given a range of prices as the total cost will vary depending on the unit you choose, the size of your home, and the cost of installation charged by the company you choose. Please note that prices may also vary between the cities in your province.

Factors that Affect Cost to Replace Furnace

There are several different factors that will affect the total cost of replacing your furnace.

Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) Rating:

The annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE)  is a rating assigned to each furnace. For example, if your furnace has a 90% AFUE rating then that means that 90 cents of every dollar spent on heating. The higher the AFUE rating, the more efficient your furnace will be. It does not include, however, the electrical energy required to operate your fan, pumps, or controls. A higher AFUE rating usually also means a higher price tag. However, don’t be put off by an initial higher price tag. A furnace with a higher AFUE rating will in many cases save you more money in the long run in heating costs.

Extra Features:

There is a wide range of furnaces from very basic models to ones that have extra features such as advanced humidity controls, reduced noise levels, and the capability to give you diagnostic data. You can also choose from units that have varying fan systems that are designed to work best for homes of varying sizes and layouts. Talk to a reliable HVAC technician to get some professional advice on which type of model would best suit your home and which features would be ones that you really need.

Warranty:

Make sure that your furnace comes with a good warranty. A cheaper furnace may have a very short or poor warranty, which could be an indication of the quality of the unit. It is worth the extra money to go for a furnace that is backed by a good warranty. If a manufacturer is willing to give you a warranty for 10 years, that means that they are confident that their furnace is well made and will last that long. It will also give you peace of mind that you won’t have to pay to replace your furnace for another 10 years.
