Please recommend an energy efficient furnace for a 3,000 sq. ft. two-story with finished basement. Are there any potential rebates?
We are looking to replace our 8-year-old furnace. We would like to install an energy-efficient furnace. We also would like to balance energy savings with cost of installation.
The place to get all the info is the US Department of Energy website. This site outlines the federal tax credits that are available, or in your area, 30% of cost, up to $1,500.
You should also check with your utility companies, which frequently offer rebates and incentives. Talk with a few mechanical contractors in your area who can properly design and size a system for your home and price it for you.
