Professional Furnace Installation in Western Wisconsin & Eastern Minnesota
If your home is no longer as warm as it should be, or your furnace has stopped working altogether, you may need to replace your furnace with a new one. Unless you have a background in furnace installation, replacing your furnace is a job best left to the professionals. By relying on our Hudson furnace replacement specialists at Stellar Techs, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that your system is installed correctly the first time. We’ll ensure you receive a quality solution and make the process as easy as possible for you.
The best time of year to replace your furnace is typically during the off-peak seasons, such as late spring or early fall. During these times, HVAC professionals are generally less busy, and you may have more flexibility in scheduling the installation. Additionally, replacing your furnace before the peak of winter or summer ensures that your heating or cooling needs are met when you need them the most. Planning ahead allows for a smoother installation process and provides time to address any unexpected issues that may arise during the replacement.
The average cost for a standard gas furnace replacement ranges from $2,500 to $7,500. Higher efficiency models or those with advanced features may incur additional expenses. Other costs include labor fees, permits, ductwork modifications, and necessary upgrades. To secure a fair price, homeowners should obtain multiple quotes from reputable HVAC contractors. This ensures transparency and allows for comparison of services and prices to make an informed decision about their furnace replacement.

Gas or Electric Furnace Replacement?
When trying to decide between a gas furnace and an electric furnace, homeowners should take into account several factors. Oftentimes it's a matter of what fuel is available, but there are a few points to consider as well.
Firstly, it is important to consider the cost of purchasing either unit. Electric furnaces are usually less expensive initially than gas models, yet they can be more expensive to operate in the long run due to the increasing cost of electricity. Gas furnaces may be cheaper for some homeowners as natural gas prices have been relatively stable compared to electricity prices. However, gas units have shorter lifespans (10-20 years) than electric furnaces.
There are other factors that need to be taken into consideration as well, such as effectiveness, durability and safety. Electric furnaces tend to be quieter and more durable with quicker installation times than their gas counterparts due to the fewer components required for their operation. Maintenance requirements are also lower in comparison with other types of heating systems because electric models do not rely on combustible fuels for energy production. Safety is an important aspect. Gas units must be kept in good condition since they burn natural gas which could lead to carbon monoxide poisoning if not properly monitored or maintained.
Both types of heating systems have their own advantages and disadvantages that need to be carefully considered before making a decision.
