Expectations for HVAC Replacement Estimates

November 30, 2023

Price estimates are a common exercise for high-value products or services, and a great example here is any kind of HVAC replacement you're considering for your home. Whether you're looking to replace a furnace, heat pump, AC unit or any other major fixture, an in-home estimate where professionals come to your home and evaluate your needs is a common part of the process - and one that's worth preparing for. 

At Thompson's Comfort Connection, we're here to offer AC, heat pump and furnace replacements for clients across Sandy and Draper. Price estimates are a common part of these services, and we're happy to assist you with simple, transparent consultations. Here are some basics on why getting a price estimate is important before a major replacement like this, plus some tips on how to prepare for your estimate and what will happen during the estimate appointment. 

Why Price Estimates Are Important for HVAC Replacements

Firstly, before we get into specifics, let's discuss why these estimates are important in the first place. Simply put, they give you a much better idea of what kind of costs you'll be looking at for your replacement project. 

When it comes to major fixtures like AC units and furnaces, there can be significant differences in cost from one model to another - price estimates help you avoid any surprises when it comes to the final bill. Plus, they give you an opportunity to ask questions and clarify any concerns you might have about the process or products being recommended.

How to Prepare for Your Price Estimate

Now that we understand why price estimates are important, let's discuss how you can prepare for yours. First, make sure you've done your research on HVAC replacement options and have an idea of what you're looking for. This will help guide the conversation and make sure all aspects are covered during the estimate appointment. 

Additionally, it's a good idea to have any questions or concerns written down beforehand so you can make sure they're addressed. Finally, be prepared to provide information about your home and current HVAC system, including some of the following:

  • Current or recent hot or cold spots: These are areas where you may have noticed temperature inconsistencies, indicating potential issues with your current HVAC system.
  • Energy bills: Have your recent energy bills on hand to provide an idea of current efficiency and potential savings with a new replacement.
  • Current air quality concerns: If you've been experiencing poor air quality in certain areas of your home, make sure to mention this during the estimate.
  • Any known issues with your current HVAC system: If you've had any repairs done or noticed specific problems, mention these to the professional during the estimate.
  • Recent remodeling: If you know of any significant remodeling that's been done since the previous furnace or AC unit was installed, this may impact the type of replacement recommended.

What to Expect During Your Estimate Appointment

During your estimate appointment, our professionals will come to your home and evaluate your current HVAC system and needs. They'll take measurements and ask you questions about your home and preferences in order to provide an accurate price estimate for a replacement. We'll also go over different options and answer any questions you may have about the process. 

Overall, the goal of our estimates is to provide you with a transparent and accurate understanding of what to expect for your HVAC replacement project. Some other considerations we may help walk you through here:

  • Warranties: We'll go over any warranties that come with the replacement products, and what they cover. These are very important for long-term cost considerations.
  • Noise levels: Different models may produce more or less noise than others - we'll go over which ones may be best for your preferences.
  • Maintenance needs and costs: Certain units may require more maintenance than others, and we'll help you understand what to expect in terms of cost and frequency here.
  • Financing: We offer financing options to make your replacement more manageable - we'll go over these with you and help determine which may be best for your situation. 

We hope this information has been helpful in understanding the importance of price estimates for HVAC replacements, and how you can prepare for them.
