How Much Should a Furnace Cost in Long Island?

September 24, 2016

It’s a terrible feeling when you know you’re close to having to replace your furnace. Sadly, it’s part of life, and Long Island homeownership, and so is budgeting for a new furnace. So when that dreaded day comes, where do you start?

The value of a new furnace will fluctuate depending on several factors, including the lifestyle and habits of individuals in the home. Health problems may also require air filtration systems, which also factors into which furnace is ideal for your family. Even collections can help determine which furnace is right for your family. Does someone collect art or is anyone a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can impact the integrity of these things so you may have to include a whole-home humidifier in your heating and cooling system.

Something else to take into consideration is your actual home. How many windows does your home have and which direction are they facing? What type of insulation do you current have and how effective is it at trapping air in your home? How new the ductwork is, the favored power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home layout can affect which furnace is ideal for your family.


Matz-Rightway will set-up a no-charge consultation where they will visit your home and analyze your current set-up. The team will review your options with you and provide you a free estimate on a new furnace installation based on their review of your home’s structure and unique features.

The next thing that will determine the price of your furnace is which company you select to install your system. One contractor may have your desired system at a lower cost, but be careful and verify that they are licensed, bonded, and insured just in case something should happen while they’re on your premises. You can actually be held liable if a contractor were to get injured on your property if they are not insured.

All of these pieces go into influencing how much a new heating and cooling system will cost, but let’s get down to what you really want to know. We’ve provided a few estimates on how much you can expect to pay based on the style of home you live in.
