This has always been a difficult question to answer because there are so many variables. Each home or business is unique and requires its own set of replacement considerations.
The choice of manufacturer, fuel type, building or home size, and installation modifications all contribute to the overall cost. This could range from $4,500.00 to $12,000.00+ for most homes.
This question can be answered by an HVAC contractor who takes the necessary time to analyze your home's needs for heating. A heat loss calculation is often done to determine the appropriate size or BTU requirement for each building. It is essential not to oversize your system for efficiency and long-term durability.
It is typical in New England for a home or building to need between 15 and 30 BTUs per square foot to heat that space to 70 degrees indoor at a 5 degree outdoor temperature.
Typically it is common for the installing contractor to properly remove and dispose of your old system. It is important to consider environmental impacts of disposal. How this will be done is a question that should be asked of your contractor.
It is not uncommon for a new system that has been properly serviced and maintained annually to have a service life of 20 to 30 years or more.
The short answer is yes, an old worn-out system in a home for sale will typically lower the value of that home and compensation to the new buyers is typical.
