Default Average price for new furnace install

My wife and I are about to buy a 1200SQ FT house in blue ash that will be needing a new furnace very soon. The current one is original to the house and needs to go. I realize prices vary based on size,model, and company but i wanted to get an idea of what we can expect to spend and also what others are using and are happy with.
Thanks
Dan

That's a good ballpark figure. If I may recommend a contractor, I was ridiculously happy with the work and service from Geiler.

Do realize that whatever you spend on a furnace will probably be recovered within 2-3 years in energy savings.

On my last house, I had a decision to spend $900 on repairs to bring the OLD furnace (30+ years old) up to code (CO and gas leaks) or $1900 for a new furnace. We purchased the new unit and never had a regret.

It all depends on what your goals are with your house. If you are settled in and are going to be there for the forseable future, then yes, a new furnance and insulation is the way to go. If you dont plan on being around for that long, then riding it out may be the way to go, like me.

I disagree with the above. If and when it's time to sale your home, a newer furnace can go a long way at sealing the deal.

I have to agree with unusualfire. A new furnace could be a great selling point when it comes time to sell, although my wife and i are in it long term with this home purchase. We love the neighborbood and the school district. $2000+ for a new furnace doesn't seem that bad at all!
Thanks
