Cost to Install a Heating System or Furnace
Quote and Estimate
Whether you need to replace a dead furnace or install an entirely new heating system, you’re looking at a significant investment. Your HVAC pro can look at your particular house its size, configuration, age, and help you determine the best and most cost-effective way to heat it. GALVEZ AIR CONDITIONING & REFRIGERATION can explain you all details of Heating System.
Consider what kind of fuel you should use: gas, electric, oil or something else. Most homeowners stick to whatever their homes already had to minimize the labor and costs associated with extra installation of things like duct work or running electric lines.
But there could be reasons to change. Your location, house size, and energy bills will all factor in to your final decision on which furnace or Heat Pump type, model, and size is right for your home.
Dual fuel Heat Pump & Furnace Systems
Get huge savings on your monthly energy costs with a Heat Pump or Furnace System. The best of both worlds, Duel Fuel systems provide you with the most energy-efficient home heating and cooling system by pairing an electric heat pump with a traditional gas furnace. Heat pumps are extremely efficient for cooling all summer long, and for heating until temperatures drop below 35 degrees, at which point the natural gas furnace kicks in, saving you from high electrical bills in the winter.

FAQs about Heating systems or Furnace Install
Home Size and BTU Calculations
Since the difference in price between various heating capacities can span thousands of dollars, getting one that far exceeds the home’s size requirements can waste over $10,000. On the other hand, getting a furnace that is too small to meet the home’s needs means the furnace will run constantly. This level of use can drive up utility bills and require repair or replacement sooner than usual.
To figure out the average heating capacity that a home requires, calculate the square footage of the home. Homes typically require 30 to 60 BTUs per square foot. Whether a home needs more or fewer BTUs depends on the climate zone where the home is located.
A more precise way to determine the best furnace size for a space is to do a load calculation. Prior to the age of computers, many contractors shied away from this calculation. It’s very involved and requires a lot of information, but it results in a more exact calculation. With an accurate load calculation in hand, it’s much easier for homeowners to make an informed purchase.
The load calculation relies on the following data
- Foundation type
- Roof type
- Roof color
- Insulation values
- Type, location and number of windows
- Type, location and number of exterior doors
- Ideal temperature that the house will maintain
- House size
- House’s orientation or direction
- Primary construction materials
- Landscaping that affects how much sun or wind hits the home.
A heat pump is an air conditioner that can also work in reverse. In other words, in the summer it pulls heat out of your home, making the temperature in your home much cooler.
Then, during the few weeks of winter that we get in the Phoenix area, the heat pump reverses this process. Rather than taking the heat out of your home and transporting it outside, it takes heat from outside and puts it into your home.
If you’re in the market for a new air conditioner or furnace, you may want to consider a heat pump for a few reasons:
• More energy efficient – Heat pumps can be up to 400% more efficient. That means for each unit of energy used, they move up to four units of heat.
• Reliable – The technology in heat pumps is not new. They’ve been around for a long time and can last as long as a good air conditioner (up to 10-15 years.)
• Environmentally friendly – Unlike gas furnaces, heat pumps do not burn anything or directly release carbon emissions. They only use a small amount of electrical energy to move heat.

What a great guy/service, came out, had to redo/repair the mess I made putting in a new thermostat, replaced the parts that blew, generally checked the whole unit, and it cost much less than I had anticipated – I will always call Galvez A/C for any future A/C needs

IF YOU EVER HAVE A/C ISSUES – THIS COMPANY (CEO JOSE GALVEZ) SAVED US – LITERALLY! I have lived in Arizona my entire life and I am 37. I have had several different homes from the West Valley to the East Valley and graduated from ASU in 2009. I have NEVER seen a Company care more about their customers than this Company. Our air conditioning went out 3 weeks ago and I am a full time attorney with two children who are in the midst of home schooling now with the pandemic as Gilbert is providing online courses for my children. I had been going outside to flip the breaker on and off as well as turning off my unit just to get by until the a/c repair company came out. I had FOUR companies come out to fix my unit and most told me that it would be 3 to 4 weeks more because of COVID-19 and other issues. My compressor, in the meantime, completely quit and my house inside raised to 95 degrees in temperature. I lost 3 animals and have heart issues. I was worried about my family and worried about how I would be able to provide for them if something happened as heat worsens my condition. My kind neighbors ended up giving me a place to stay while we waited for everything to get fixed. The 4th company to come out told me they would treat me right and promised not to price gouge. They ended up telling me it would be $11,200 to replace my a/c. They didn’t even climb into my attic to really find the problem. To make matters worse, I found out that they were only paying $3,500 for the unit they were charging me $11,200 to fix. I was at a loss and called a close friend asking for help. I have been struggling to make ends meet as several of my corporate clients have gone under with so much going on in the world and now I was trying to work from my neighbor’s home. I was worried about this personal emergency causing me to be unable to work for the clients that I have left. My fried recommended Jose to me and I was leary because all of the prior 4 companies had been so dishonest and seemed to not care about my predicament. Jose came out immediately and told me it would cost half the price of what every other company quoted me. He was honest, fair, and showed me why my A/C had broken down. He climbed into the attic and took time to actually find out what had happened. My A/C had broken twice last summer and this was the second time this summer. We moved into this home last year and I was starting to believe we would never find someone to fix the real problem. Arizona heat is brutal and a broken A/C disrupts Arizonan’s entire lives, especially with children in the home and pets. It is a health emergency. Jose treated it that way and told me everything was going to be okay. I had broken down crying because it was all so much and he was so professional despite how embarrassed I was to be a corporate attorney who couldn’t even handle everything at the point he came out because so much had been disrupted in our lives without having shelter we could live in any longer. Jose ordered the new unit the same day he came to my home to find out what was going on. He came with his employees next morning at 5:30 am to install and cleaned everything before he left. He saved me and my family in a way I could never repay. I will NEVER use another A/C company and will be referring EVERYONE to him. We are back in our home and finally back to being able to live our lives and work. Jose, you have saved an attorney and her family. Thank you for being honest, kind, professional, and so hard working. Thank you for giving us our home back.

I needed someone to come out and fix my failing AC because of a previous installers poor workmanship. I saw Galvez had great reviews in my area. I ended up calling late in the day, but he was still able to come out. Mr. Galvez and his assistant showed up promptly, looking neat and professional. They redid my previous installers work quickly and accurately. Mr. Galvez was super nice, and super knowledgeable. He completed the work correctly at a fraction of what the previous installer wanted to fix their own mistake. I will definitely be using Galvez again for my future checkups and maintenance.

Galvez AC recently installed a new Ac and furnace for me. He beat out 2 other estimates, one by 4000 dollars and the other one by over $ 1000. They arrived on time and went right to work, no breaks and done in under 6 hours. Honest and very knowledgable and friendly. I cannot recommend them enough. We are highly satisfied.

Called and Jose was at my house within a few hours. Doesn’t charge a trip fee , you only pay for his time and parts which aren’t doubled in price. Couldn’t be happier. Nice to find a air and heat Company that’s trust worthy and so reasonably priced. He also has no problem working week ends without charging extra. Very satisfied. 😀
