Cut Your Utility Bills by Installing a New Furnace

Tired of opening those energy bills during the winter heating season? Hey, Merts Heating & Air Conditioning is right there with you. Are you ready to do something about it? Then consider installing a new furnace in your Illinois or Indiana home.

Crunch the numbers

Depending on how old your current furnace is it might have an efficiency rating of 60% or even less. Just 10 years ago 78% efficiency was pretty common. Today you can easily have a furnace with a 95% rating. To be clear what we’re talking about, a 60% efficient furnace is wasting 40% of the energy it creates by burning natural gas. You can see how a new furnace can make those monthly energy bills much smaller.

Return on investment

We are not here to tell you energy savings will pay the entire cost of your new furnace installation, as a matter of fact, if any HVAC contractor tells you that, you should be very suspicious. But there are other factors you need to consider:


If your old furnace requires repairs now, or likely will soon, that cost needs to be added to the equation as well.

Peace of mind:

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a furnace that is covered by a manufacturer’s warranty? Of course, it would. Unexpected repairs can ruin the household budget. You won’t have to worry about that for an extended period of time.

Home value:

We don’t know if you are going to be selling your home in the near future and quite honestly in today’s world neither do you. If you must put your home on the market, modern high-efficiency furnace installation is a huge factor in your favor.

Enjoy it yourself:

If you end up staying in your home, we can almost guarantee you a new furnace will make you more comfortable. Again, this is a matter of technological advances. Twenty-first-century furnaces are not only more efficient, but they are also simply better at doing the job.

Tax credits & rebates

Protecting the environment is a top priority. Installing a high-efficiency furnace can qualify you for tax credits and rebates from your utility company. Whether you live in Illinois or Indiana, Merts can help you get every dollar that’s coming to you. And you will have the satisfaction of knowing your new furnace is helping to save the environment.
