Why Should I Replace My Furnace, Not Repair It?
The decision to replace your furnace is a significant investment. It can take some time to consider the overarching benefits of furnace installation. Luckily, the team at Short Pump Heating & Air has put together some of the advantages for you:
Your home will be more energy-efficient. A new furnace equals newer technology and modern design. And these features result in furnaces using a lot less energy than older models, meaning your energy bill will be lower at the end of the month!
Our technicians will be able to detect any issues with your home’s entire heating system. When a Short Pump Heating & Air technician comes to your home for a furnace installation, they’ll also be able to inspect your home for any additional issues you may be facing with your heating system.
You’ll be nice and cozy during Richmond’s colder months. It might sound obvious, but a newer furnace is just going to work better. It’s going to keep your home much warmer and more comfortable, even when our central VA temperatures drop below freezing.

Furnace Installation FAQs
Can I install my own furnace?
NO. Installing a furnace needs to be done by a licensed HVAC professional. Here in Virginia, we’re DIYers (do-it-yourselfers) – and that’s okay for many projects, but it’s never a good idea to install your furnace. Even the DIY websites say, “This is a very dangerous proposition, particularly if you are working with natural gas and electricity.” Just don’t do it.
How much does it cost to install a furnace?
There are many variables. It’s a real pain when the answer is “It depends,” but … it depends. Installing a gas furnace is different than a heat pump, which is different than an electric unit, and so on. HomeAdvisor says you can guesstimate $5,500 for installing or replacing a furnace. The cost of equipment, labor, and materials can be between $2,605-$6,306. A gas furnace is more ($3,800-$10,000), but if it is high-efficiency, it can save more money in the long run. Electric units are about $7,000, with labor costs between $500-$2,000.
Why is furnace installation so expensive?
Furnace installation is so expensive because it’s never a cookie-cutter job. There are so many unpredictables that HVAC professionals must consider all possibilities. You want the best materials, not unreliable, made-out-of-country parts. You want a knowledgeable installation professional, not somebody’s untrained niece or nephew.
If a furnace company offers much lower furnace installation pricing than others, you may find they encounter “surprises” during the project. Surprises always cost more. You might discover — after the Fly By Night Furnace Company has left town — inferior materials or even unsafe installation methods were used. Basically, furnace installation is so expensive because it requires careful, quality work, and you and your loved ones deserve the best possible service.
