When you’re at the place of comparing high efficiency and standard efficiency furnaces, you’re likely about to make an important decision for your home. It’s not exactly paper vs. plastic, where the ramifications are limited. We could be talking thousands of dollars on equipment, and even more on the operation of that equipment.
The two models above give a general concept of what technical differences you may find between the standard efficiency and high efficiency furnace options you’re considering.
When we are working through the choices with our clients, what we first acknowledge are what both systems will do:
To achieve the term “high efficiency” within the industry a furnace must be 90% efficient within it’s gas usage. But that’s a limited view of what efficiencies can be gained, and what benefits can be provided.
Our belief is that you are the best person to determine what is the correct system for your home, your budget, and the comfort needs you have. Our role is to provide as much clarity within the equipment options, so that you can make the most intelligent decision possible. Above, I only compared two options, but most suppliers will have up to a dozen different furnaces to consider. If you have any specific questions about choosing a high efficient HVAC system or not for your Indianapolis home, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me.
