I am a new homeowner so please forgive my innocence and lack of knowledge but I really need help with choice of new furnace and installation.
Location: New York: Long Island. Avg winter temp is 25 to 30 degrees. 1400 sq ft house.
Existing furnace: Brand: Crown 3 zone system
Problem: Recent rain (Over 18 inches in span of 5 days) caused basement to flood. Basement had 18 inches of water. 1/3 of the furnace was under water.
Inspection: Plumber said cost to repair would be just as much as new furnace. He said electrical is damaged and filter? is clogged with water. His estimate for new unit w/ labor is $2,800.
I just need opinion on ballpark figure for installation of new furnace and what type of furnace I should purchase. I am planning on moving within a year and don't want to spend extra if I don't have to.
Just need opinion.
