Let’s be honest: you’d rather spend your hard-earned money on something other than replacing an old furnace. Sometimes it’s easier to just keep doling out repair costs every year or two in small amounts rather than bite the bullet and replace your whole system.
We understand that sometimes extending the life of your furnace with repairs is a financial necessity, but there comes a time when you have to stop putting a Band Aid on the problem and replace your entire furnace.
When it comes time to replace your indoor unit, your outdoor unit will also need to be replaced. The two go hand-in-hand and you can’t upgrade one and not the other. We offer a wide variety of high quality Bryant heating and cooling products to our customers. Located in Indiana, Bryant has the world’s largest furnace manufacturer. We are proud supporters of Bryant and all of their products. We offer the following heating systems:
A heat pump works like an air conditioner in the summer, but in the winter, it runs backwards. It takes warm air from outside and brings it indoors. People are often surprised you can take heat out of the air when temperatures are as low as 30 degrees.
A fan coil is the indoor portion for either your air conditioner or heat pump system.
A hybrid heat system combines the benefits of intelligent control for both gas and electric heating to create an intuitive system that can actually react to changing conditions.
Instead of using air temperature to heat or cool refrigerant in your unit, a geothermal heat pump uses water. These energy efficient units require some type of reservoir or well as part of the system.
After heating and cooling, water heating is typically the largest energy user in the home because it is necessary for so many domestic activities. The water heater should provide enough hot water at the busiest time of the day.
If you have a detached garage that houses your vehicles or workshop, you may want to consider looking at a garage heater. These can not only make the air in the building warmer and more comfortable, but it can actually help when it comes to warming up the car or truck in the morning.
A gas furnace reacts when the room air temperature drops below the programmed setting on your thermostat.
An oil furnace works the same way a gas furnace does, except it converts oil into heat instead of natural gas.
In Indianapolis these units are not typically used in residential homes. A packaged unit combines the furnace and fan coil into one unit. They are a popular choice when utility space is limited (i.e. apartments).
Standby Power Generators
All of these systems require electricity and while it doesn’t happen often, if your cooling system goes out, you will need a standby power generator to keep your home comfortable in case of an emergency.
Typical heating and cooling systems move air through the duct work in your home. Older homes, designed before the introduction of air conditioning and small apartments and condos, do not have ducts. These units contain mini condensers in each room, allowing you to control the temperature without making major renovations to the property.
Regular maintenance helps extend the life of your system. Spending a little money every year to have your system inspected now can keep it running for years to come.
Now, purchasing a new furnace is a big investment. At Chapman, we work and live in Indianapolis and the surrounding area just like you do. We know times can be tough. That’s why we offer financing with approved credit so you can pay for your heating or cooling system over time. We want you to be comfortable. We want your family to be happy and healthy.
