Though not as commonly employed by most HVAC contractors, Heil furnaces are the quality economy buy when it comes to a new furnace. Offering an efficiency spectrum as broad as higher-end brands such as Carrier or Trane, Heil stands along with the big brands while maintaining low prices for good products.
As most customer reviews will explain, the common issue with Heil furnaces is maintenance. Whenever you’re investing in a new furnace, it’s important to look into customer experiences. It’s wise to shop for low furnace prices, but a low price isn’t the only factor you should consider. Oftentimes, spending a little more up front on your home heating system will save you maintenance cost in the long run.
The following is a list of estimates on Heil furnace prices, but remember: it’s more than the initial cost that counts!
High Efficiency Furnaces:
Annuel Fuel Usage Efficiency is the rating system by which furnace manufacturers must abide. The minimum AFUE for all furnaces as required by energy efficiency laws is 80%, with high end furnaces approaching nearly 100%. Highly efficient Heil furnaces vary from 95-97% in AFUE ratings.
Heil furnaces with AFUE ratings of 95% and higher will run from around $1,300-$2,000. This estimate includes the following models: QuietComfort VC 97, VT 96, IIX 96, DLX 96, and VS 95.
Medium Efficiency Gas Furnaces
Heil furnaces with AFUE ratings between 90% and 94% will run from around $900-$1,200. This furnace estimate includes the following models: PS 92, and QuietComfort VS 90, DLX 90.
