Efficiency is more than just a buzzword. When your heating and air conditioning (HVAC) systems are efficient, you know that they use a minimal amount of fuel or electricity, and you save more money in the long run. An efficient furnace or air conditioning system often costs more than one that is closer to the minimum federal rating, but that pays off in the long run.
What you save often offsets the cost of a brand-new highly efficient air conditioning or heating system, and financing may be available from your local contractor. That’s why it’s so important to work with the pros, but we have some advice to get you started with picking out the most efficient system for your needs.
