Older, less efficient furnaces cost you more to heat your home each month. Typically, around 44 percent of your utility bill goes toward heating & cooling. So if you’re looking to save money on energy costs, the first place to find savings is with your HVAC system.
A new energy-efficient furnace or heat pump is a smart way to invest in your home and plays a big part in keeping your utility bills down. You might be surprised how much money your older, inefficient unit is wasting each month as it tries to keep your home warm. Wouldn’t you rather keep that extra money you’re currently sending to the utility company?

We install Carrier electric furnaces / fan coils for residential use.

Repair or Replace?
Sometimes a little service is all you need to stay up and running. But how do you know when it’s time to bite the bullet and invest in a new system rather than put money into an old one? To be able to determine if it’s time to invest in a new furnace, you really need to look at three factors:
Your furnace efficiency – How old is your furnace? Has it received regular annual maintenance or has it been ignored over the years? You might be surprised how much money your inefficient furnace is costing you each month.
The costs of fuel – Are you currently using gas, electric, oil or propane to heat your home? Is the cost of that fuel trending upward? What do you project fuel costs to be 5, 10, or 15 years from now?
The “heat load” of your home – How much energy is required to keep the inside of your home a steady 65-degrees (or whatever temperature is comfortable to you)?
