The cost of installing a new heating system depends on many factors. At a minimum, installing a new heating system can cost around $2,000. The more work that’s involved, such as additional ductwork or repairs, the more the price can increase. In some cases, you could be looking at a bill totaling tens of thousands of dollars.
Despite that staggering statistic, this will most likely not be the case for the average small to mid-size commercial building or home. There are many types of heating systems that homes and offices can use to provide heat during the colder weather. Knowing which one your home or office needs is key to understanding how much installing a new heating system might cost.

Types of Heating Systems and HVAC
HVAC is an acronym that stands for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. When you are considering a heating system for your home or office, you should know furnaces, boilers, and heat pumps are the three most common ways to heat a home.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, natural gas furnaces are the most common method of heating a home in the United States. Many offices also use furnaces. A furnace uses fuel to disperse the heat throughout a home or office. There are different fuel types out there. There’s even an electric version that does not require traditional fuels like oil, propane, and natural gas. Furnaces, depending on the fuel they use, can range anywhere from $2,500 to $4,500 to purchase and install. These prices vary depending on the state you live in. Costs can also fluctuate depending on the brand of furnace and the extent of work needed.
Boilers use water to heat your home or office. Instead of relying on ductwork and fans to disperse heat, boilers heat water. The hot water then gets pumped through a series of pipes, which disperse the heat through a radiator or coil. Boilers also produce steam, which serves as an additional heat source. On average, you will most likely pay around $3,000 to $5,000 to install a new boiler.
Heat pumps are like air conditioners, but instead of pulling hot air out of the air and replacing it with cold, the opposite happens. A heat pump pulls air from the outside or underground and heats it up to deliver it into your home or office. Above-ground, air-based heat pumps are more common due to the ease of installation and lower price points. Heat pumps in the ground rely on geothermal heat and are typically more expensive and harder to install, but they are more efficient. In general, heat pumps can be pricey and range between $4,000 to $7,000 or more, depending on the system’s complexity and how big the home or office is.
The Efficiency of New Heating Systems
Most people install a new heating system to replace one that is damaged or less energy-efficient. Heating systems that are old or in a state of disrepair to the point of breakdown need replacement.
When you consider a new heating system, be sure to look for the Energy Star® label. These labels tell you the new heating system you are purchasing is efficient and environmentally conscious. Energy Star® heating systems can also save you money on energy costs.
