Installing High-Efficiency Residential and Commercial Furnaces
No single factor is as important as the efficiency of your furnace and air conditioner in lowering energy use and the long-term costs. Modern forced-air gas furnaces, central and ductless air conditioners, and packages rooftop HVAC systems are far more efficient than those used just a decade ago. Leading manufacturers, including Carrier, Bryant, Trane, Payne, Goodman and Lennox, offer a wide range of efficiency ratings. Choosing HVAC equipment with the highest ratings may cost more in the purchase price, but will repay that additional cost later in energy savings. In addition, the rebates from manufacturers and energy companies are always tied to efficiency ratings, and are only available when you choose more efficient models for your home or commercial property in Minneapolis St. Paul.
The price of a high-efficiency furnace depends on several factors, including, the brand, size, installation, fuel efficiency rating and control features. The bigger, more expensive systems are not necessarily better. In order to choose the right model for your requirements and budget, an in-home assessment is necessary. During the visit, we will explain the available options and their installation costs. We will let you decide what works best for your home or commercial property. We will also explain how you can qualify for money-saving rebates like those from the Carrier Cool Cash Program and energy companies. We offer seasonal promotional discounts and deals that help you lower the cost even more.
Going Green with Residential and Commercial Heating
There’s a new wave of concern for environmental issues in the 21st Century, as more and more people realize the benefits of cutting down on energy use. From concerns about global climate change to the sheer long-term economical benefits of using less energy, going green is a hot topic these days. In Minnesota, our long extreme weather prolongs our heating and cooling seasons. As a result, keeping our homes and business environments comfortable consumes a large amount of energy. Cutting down on the use of expensive energy is a good way to start on the path toward environmentally conscious heating and cooling. The benefits of reducing energy usage with an energy-efficient furnace and air conditioner installation are many:
By reducing the energy usage, we make a positive impact on the use of fossil fuels, a possible source of pollution and an influence on climate.
For homeowners and business owners alike, concern about energy use by neighbors, customers, and tenants is growing. Using less energy is often seen as a plus by those around us. For businesses, this can lead to greater customer approval and patronage.
Using less energy immediately reduces the cost of energy used for heating, especially during the long Minnesota winters. The savings are clear, and can more than offset the higher costs required for an initial investment in a high-efficiency furnace and air conditioner. In addition, rebates by energy companies can act to further offset equipment costs.
