How Much Should a Furnace Cost in Hilton Head Island?

September 24, 2016

It’s a terrible feeling when you know you’re close to having to replace your furnace. But alas, it’s part of life, and Hilton Head Island homeownership, and so is budgeting for a new furnace. So when that scary day arrives, where do you start?

The price of a new furnace will fluctuate depending on several factors, including the lifestyle and customs of people in the home. Health problems may also result in air filtration systems, which also factors into which furnace is right for your family. Even interests can help you decide which furnace is right for you. Does someone collect art or is someone a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can impact the integrity of these items so you may think about purchasing a whole-home humidifier in your HVAC system.

The next thing to take into consideration is your actual home. How many windows are there and which direction do they face? What level of insulation is currently installed and how efficient is it at trapping air indoors? How new the ductwork is, the preferred power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home blueprint can go into deciding which furnace is right for your family.


Epperson Service Experts will set-up a free consultation where they will come to your home and analyze your current set-up. They will discuss your options with you and provide you a no-charge estimate on a new furnace installation determined by your home’s design and unique traits.

Something else that will determine the price of your furnace is which company you select to install your system. One contractor may have the equipment you want at a lower cost, but be mindful and make sure that they are licensed, bonded, and insured in the event something should happen while they’re on your site. If a contractor who was not insured was injured on your property, you can actually be held liable.
