About Replacing or Installing a System…
Q: Why should I replace my existing furnace or air conditioner?
A: Today’s systems are as much as 60% more efficient than the systems manufactured as little as ten years ago. In addition, wear and tear on a furnace or air conditioner can reduce the actual or realized efficiency of the system. If your system is old, inefficient or needs repair, or you are concerned about utility bills or faced with an expensive repair, you should consider replacing your heating or cooling equipment. The monthly savings on your utility bill from having a more efficient system would provide an attractive return on your investment.
Q: How expensive are air conditioners and heat pumps?
A: Many factors affect the cost of a heating or air conditioning system, including the size of your home, the type and condition of the ductwork installed and accessories you may need, such as thermostats, air cleaners, etc. We have a complete range of systems and accessories available to meet all your needs, including your financial ones!
