heat pump price

joe_mnJune 17, 2011

build new house in MN. built with forced air gas HE furnace/central air unit. how much more would a heat pump unit cost. would cold MN temps require a specific type of heat pump system? i know its a hugely vague question. house size is not known. premium/cheap equipment may be used. some shops might charge 50% more than their competition. but as a rule, is there an accepted premium upcharge for a heatpump setup?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo


there is no rule of thumb or accepted premium upcharge going from the AC condenser to the same mdl HP condenser.

However, while HVAC markets vary in pricing, I think $500 on low end to $750 on high end would be fair to both homeowner and dealer.

I will say this. On furnaces, it's clear that the market is moving toward full modulating furnaces on the high end. You should study carefully your nat gas and electric rates. I would definitely consider dropping the HP idea for the full modulating furnace. If two story, I would want two systems or at very least zoning controls.
