Furnace Prices in Ontario

Furnace prices vary greatly depending on a number of factors, but we can help you narrow down your choices to the options that are best suited to your needs.

Furnace Prices in Ontario

Living through cold Ontario winters you know just how essential a great furnace is to the comfort of you and your family in these months. Not only does a furnace regulate your home’s internal temperature, it also enhances your health by preventing the growth of mold and other harmful bacteria, ensures that your pipes don’t freeze or burst, and saves money on your monthly energy bill. A great furnace is really the unsung hero of home comfort during the wintertime. If you’re thinking of upgrading your home’s furnace to a new model, we’re here to help you navigate furnace prices and help you understand what you can expect to pay for a new furnace in Ontario.

Factors That Influence Furnace Prices

Average furnace prices in Ontario range between $3,400-$6,500 installed. When searching for the right furnace for your home, the factors that you should be considering include:

Fuel Type – A furnace can run on either gas, propane, electricity, or solar energy. Prices vary by fuel type so knowing which type is most suitable for your home is essential to choosing the right furnace.

AFUE Rating – A furnace’s AFUE rating, or Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency, measures how efficiently a furnace converts fuel to heat. The most efficient furnaces have an AFUE rating of 95%+. A high efficiency furnace will have a higher upfront cost, but it saves money over time by lowering the operation cost and as a result lowers your monthly energy bill.

Your Location – Furnace prices will vary by region as large cities benefit from having more HVAC contractors and no additional distribution fees. The general rule of thumb is that living 1h+ from the city increases the price of furnace installation by 20-40%. If you’re 2-3h+ away from the city then you can expect installation prices to increase 50-60% from the standard rate. For an accurate price quote for your area, contact DeMark Home Ontario today and one of our trained HVAC professionals can provide you with a free consultation.

Furnace Model – Of course, the brand and model that you choose will affect the price. Several brands make low or mid-range furnaces such as Goodman, York, KeepRite, Trane and Rheem. There are also premium manufacturer’s such as Amana or Bosch for those interested in top-of-the-line equipment.

Home Size – The size of your home decides the appropriate furnace size for your home. A BTU rating, or British Thermal Unit rating, measures the heat content of fuels or energy sources. Add 30 BTUs for each square food of your home to find the furnace size that your home requires.
