Knowing that the temperatures are dropping, now is the best time to start thinking about a new boiler or furnace. Not only is a new boiler or furnace going to be more effective at keeping you and your family comfortable, but it also may help lower your monthly utility bills.
Of course, there is the boiler or furnace system cost to consider. It can be challenging to figure out approximately how much it will cost to purchase a boiler or furnace and pay for the heating system installation. If you look up the prices of a new boiler or furnace online, you will see prices that vary greatly from those offered to you by boiler or furnace contractors. If you contact several contractors on your own, you will get quotes that may not be easy to compare because it’s not clear what is included in the price and if the price is fair.
Understanding Boiler and Furnace Contractors' Price Quotes for New Systems
A qualified boiler or furnace contractor is going to give you a quote that includes the boiler or furnace system cost as well as a variety of other costs. Your quote will typically include:
- Price of new boiler or furnace system equipment

In addition, some contractors may lump the following costs into your price quote for a new boiler or furnace and installation, or they may be presented as additional charges:
- Cost of local permits that are required to complete the job.
- Cost to clean up and remove existing equipment.
- Registration fees for the system warranty.
- Cost to submit applicable rebate forms.
- Administration costs to schedule the boiler or furnace installation and subsequent inspections.
Given the fact that each quote from the contractors that you consult could be different and may include additional costs, it can be difficult to compare them. Fortunately, there are now easier ways to find out exactly how much it will cost for you to get the new heating system that you need.
