You may also be noticing that your boiler or furnace has gotten up in years and is not performing as well or as efficiently as it used to and may be considering replacing it. Here are the current national average costs for heating installation:

Furnace: $4,697
Boiler: $5,806

Note that, again, these are national average costs. Several things could make a new boiler or furnace for your home less or more expensive. Pioneer Oil and Propane is here to help, with expert furnace and boiler installation services, as well as help with financing and rebates that can help you save money on your new heating system.

Now, let’s investigate what can affect the cost of a new furnace or boiler.


With so many different boilers and furnaces on the market, it’s hard to know which one is right for you. It’s important to consider more than just the name. We can help you figure out what kind of heating system will work best for your home and your budget.


The COVID-19 pandemic has severely disrupted supply chains across industries, including the HVAC industry. The effects of the pandemic have resulted in shortages of labor as well as materials such as copper and aluminum.

At Pioneer Oil and Propane, we know that a functional furnace or boiler is key to a comfortable home. If your system is getting old, it might be time for an upgrade. To ensure that you have the best experience possible, we only work with top-quality suppliers. We’ll visit your home, assess your furnace or boiler, and give you a complimentary estimate for a replacement, all without obligation.


The cost of your new heating system installation may go up or down depending on the size and location of your unit. If, for example, you have a large home, you will need a bigger unit which impacts both the product’s price and the installation process. Additionally, where you place your furnace or boiler can add to how easy or difficult it is to install; thus affecting the final cost.

Changing energy source

Although it may cost more upfront to upgrade your electric furnace to an oil- or propane-fired system, you’ll save money in the long run with its efficiency and comfort. You’ll need to add a heating oil or propane tank to your home as well as oil or gas lines, and you may have to make other adjustments.


We will make sure that your new heating system can accommodate any additional living space in your home, such as an addition or a finished basement, or attic. If the unfinished spaces in your home didn’t originally come with ductwork or baseboard radiators, you will likely need to add them now, which will increase the cost.

We have recently learned how important it is to have clean, safe air in our homes. If you are upgrading your furnace, you may want to consider adding indoor air quality equipment such as an air purifier or a humidifier. This will be an extra cost, but it will be worth it for the improved air quality in your home.

If your furnace or boiler is getting on in years, now is the time to start planning its replacement. Contact Pioneer Oil and Propane for more information and a FREE estimate!
