Purchasing a High-Efficiency Furnace
When it comes to home heating systems, it’s best to do your research. After all, this is a purchase to last you at least the next decade or longer, so you want to be happy. When purchasing a new furnace, it is important to look at a few major points.
Warranty: Make sure the furnace model you select comes with comprehensive warranty coverage that protects you from costly repairs. Warranty coverage varies across manufacturers. However, all of them include some degree of limited heat exchanger, parts and in some cases total unit replacement.
Energy-efficiency: One of the best reasons to look into a new home heating system is the energy savings on your monthly home heating bills. AFUE ratings range from 92% up to 98%. The higher the AFUE, the bigger the savings. For Windsor residents upgrading from an outdated, inefficient system upgrading to an entry level 92% AFUE furnace model will result in noticeable savings, compared to your inefficient model.
Windsor residents who purchase a furnace and central air conditioner combo are eligible to receive a free NEST or Ecobee Thermostat when you purchase a furnace & central AC combo.* These programmable thermostats boast remote capability and allow you to control the temperature of your home using your smartphone.

Government Rebates Available
Your local HVAC distributor should be knowledgeable and up to date with the furnace rebates you may be eligible for. If they don’t mention it, ask them to check to see if you qualify for any government rebates. The HVAC company you work with can apply for these rebates on your behalf. Make sure to research this before you have your equipment installed.
