Purchasing a High-Efficiency Furnace
Size matters: Bigger isn’t always better when it comes to your forced-air furnace. If your propane or natural gas furnace is too small, you will not be able to heat your home adequately. If the unit is too large, your gas-fired furnace will cycle on and off more frequently, creating undue wear and tear on your system.
Expertise matters: The most common reasons for natural gas or propane furnace repair are human error rather than mechanical failure. Things like improper installation and failure to perform regular maintenance can affect the performance of your heating system. It is essential to do your research to ensure you hire the best furnace company to install your new high-efficiency natural gas furnace.
Warranty matters: A lifetime warranty is not worth the paper it is printed on if the company or manufacturer will not be in business to honour it. Research, ask for recommendations, and don’t be tempted to sacrifice quality for a lower furnace price.

Proper installation is an important part of keeping your high-efficiency natural gas furnace in good operating condition. The unit you purchase must be the right size for your home, as a too-small furnace will use too much energy and increase your heating and cooling costs. The install itself must also be compatible with site conditions and meet all applicable building and safety codes. A licensed and certified HVAC technician can recommend the appropriate furnace size for your home and ensure that the install is done correctly.
High-Efficiency Furnace Pricing
Hamilton consumers can expect to pay anywhere from $2500 to $4200, depending on manufacturer, model, and any requested add-ons or upgrades. A professional installation will typically cost between $500 and $1500, making the total cost of a new natural gas furnace in Hamilton anywhere from $2700 – $5700.
Factors that influence on furnace pricing include:
- The brand and model
- Unit size and BTU output
- Efficiency rating
- Whether the furnace is single, two-stage, modulating, variable speed or multi-speed
- Installation particulars, such as safety upgrades and age of your current system
If you buy a home heating system with higher BTU output and AFUE rating, you can expect to pay more. Installation particulars such as location, necessary safety upgrades, and age of your current system all influence the final cost.

By paying cash, you avoid paying any interest, but must have the money on hand.
