Mobile Home Furnace Costs (Materials)

Mobile homes require a different furnace compared to a traditional home. The main reason why mobile homes require special furnaces is due to the ductwork; mobile homes tend to have smaller duct and vent systems than traditional homes. A furnace for a mobile home is connected differently to your HVAC system and is only required to heat the mobile home space. This helps keep costs down and makes mobile home furnaces less expensive than traditional home furnaces. As well as lowering the overall project cost, compared to a traditional home.  

  • The minimum cost for a mobile home furnace is $950.
  • The average cost for a mobile home furnace is $1,075.
  • The maximum cost for a mobile home furnace is $1,200.

While the average cost of a mobile home furnace is just over $950, most homeowners end up paying closer to $2,500 after installation. On average, they take around eight hours for a team of HVAC professionals to install and connect the ducting.

  • The minimum cost for a mobile home furnace installation is $800.
  • The average cost for a mobile home furnace installation is $950.
  • The maximum cost for a mobile home furnace installation is $1,100

However, many installation companies will also charge for the additional supplies needed to complete the installation job. This can include insulation, materials, hoses, and more. Homeowners should expect to spend an addition $200 to $350 for these materials, which can drive up the total cost of the job closer to $2,500.

Mobile Home Furnace Cost Factors

Mobile homeowners looking to replace an existing furnace should keep some special considerations in mind to ensure they make the right decision. After all, there are many different models of mobile home furnaces on the market these days. Purchasing the wrong one could end up creating a big problem for you, and your new mobile home furnace. The furnace unit will not match up properly with your mobile home's existing ductwork and ventilation. Fortunately, most mobile home furnaces these days will clearly list the make and model that the furnace is compatible with.

It’s best for homeowners to ask questions from an experienced HVAC professional who has experience with mobile-home furnace units. An HVAC expert will show you what factors will increase the price of your mobile home furnace project:

  • Size
  • Location
  • Model year
  • Complexity of installation
  • Insulation

Of course, the complexity of the installation job can also affect the cost of labor. If the mobile home is new and is having a furnace installed for the first time, then it will likely take the HVAC company longer to complete the job as first-time hookups of hoses and other components will need to be done. On the other hand, if an existing furnace is being replaced and all the ductwork is in good shape, then the installation will be faster and save you some money.

Insulation improvements/repairs can be another added cost. It’s possible to pay HVAC companies a little extra to ensure that the unit and the space in which it's housed is as highly-insulated as possible. This will cost a little more money up front, but the energy savings over time will pay for it.

Different Types Of Mobile Home Furnaces

Just like a furnace for a traditional home, mobile home furnaces also have different types of fuel sources. The three most popular types are natural gas, oil and electric.

Natural Gas: This fuel source is by far the most popular option. Typically, natural gas furnaces perform at 80% efficiency and cost around $800. If you want the efficiency to be higher, around 95%, you can expect to pay a more, around $1,300.

Oil: This fuel source is different from natural gas, in that is runs off of fuel being sprayed into the combustion chamber. This type of furnace runs at 80% efficiency and costs more than natural gas furnaces, around $1,500.

Electric: Electric furnace units have a 100% efficiency rating because all incoming electricity is converted to heat. This electricity, however, is produced from gas or oil which is converted to electricity and has a 30% energy rating. Electric furnace units cost on average around $600.

Saving on Mobile Home Furnace and Installation

Buying a new furnace and having it installed is not cheap by any means, but there are some ways homeowners can save money. These include:

  • Researching various HVAC contractors and comparing estimates
  • Having the work done during a non-peak time of year
  • Looking for special savings and promotions
  • Combine all tasks needed for project and see if bundled packages are an option

During the spring and summer, HVAC companies offer special rates and discounts. Of course, it’s still possible to find some wonderful deals during peak times of the year as well. All it takes is a little bit of research.
