Is buying a furnace for your Indianapolis area home on your to-do list this winter? Indiana winters can be tough without the comfort of a reliable furnace, and your heating bills can be even tougher if that furnace isn’t working efficiently. Many people put off buying a furnace because they just don’t know where to start. If you’re one of these people, reading this guide will help you approach buying a furnace with confidence.
When you’re buying any HVAC equipment, working with a trusted HVAC contractor who has many years’ experience with a variety of HVAC equipment puts you ahead of the game. Mowery Heating, Air Conditioning and Plumbing has been in the business for more than 40 years, and we are committed to making sure our customers are satisfied with our work. We’ll talk with you and make sure we understand your needs before helping you select the best equipment.
Size matters in HVAC equipment. Buying too large a furnace means that you’ll constantly struggle with fluctuating temperatures because it cycles on and off so quickly. Your energy bill will suffer from the constant cycling as well. A furnace that’s too small will struggle to heat your home, using more energy and wearing out the furnace components faster than necessary. That’s why we look at the square footage and layout of your home, the amount of insulation you have and your usage patterns to help determine the appropriate size and model of furnace for you.
We also understand the need to lower energy costs. Today’s condensing furnaces offer a number of energy-efficiency features such as variable speed air handlers, sealed combustion and more. Modern high-efficiency furnaces have gone from a typical 65-70 percent AFUE rating to 90 percent or higher. That means the furnace uses at least 90 percent of its fuel for heating. We’ll help you find the best combination of price and efficiency features for your needs.
