Wintertime here in Indianapolis can be pretty brutal. It can also be pretty expensive if your furnace is old and inefficient. Sometimes a simple tune-up for your furnace will maximize efficiency, but an upgrade is often needed. If you’re willing to pay a little more upfront for a high-efficiency furnace, you’ll see vast savings in the long run.
To help you make your decision about an upgrade, consider these three questions:
What’s so great about a high-efficiency furnace?
Although high-efficiency furnaces may cost a little more upfront, they do offer some impressive long term benefits. A high-efficiency furnace converts up to 95% of all energy used into heat while a standard furnace peaks at around 70%. This means that for every $100 you spend to heat your home with an inefficient furnace you waste about $30. That’s not good for anyone! High-efficiency furnaces also run quietly and offer exceptional durability.
What size furnace do I need for my home?
This is a very important question to ask no matter what type of furnace you’re buying. If you purchase a high-efficiency unit that is too large for your home, you’ll still end up wasting energy. Determining the right size furnace is a tough call, but you don’t have to do it alone. Just get in touch with us to set up an appointment and we’ll come help you pick the perfect unit.
What is the best brand of furnace for me?
Many brands may claim to be energy efficient, but you can’t just take their word for it. Our Bryant systems carry the Energy Star logo, which is the industry standard for high-efficiency furnaces. Take a look at the many options we offer and let us know if you have any questions. Each unit is rated based on efficiency, durability, and noise level so make sure to browse them all!
