Choosing the Right Heating System in Indianapolis and Surrounding Areas
There are many options for your new heating system. If you select a furnace, you must decide between gas, oil, or electric. Often, gas is the most energy-efficient and cost–effective solution for Indianapolis area homeowners, but if you are having an existing system replaced, it is best to match the new system to the old components.
Additionally, take into consideration the energy efficiency of your new furnace. Furnaces are measured by AFUE – the amount of fuel consumed that is converted into heat. So, the higher the AFUE rating, the less you pay for energy. Gas furnaces have AFUE ratings of up to 98% but the higher-rated models do cost more.
Another option for heating replacement in Indianapolis, Lebanon, and Fishers or the surrounding areas, is a heat pump. Heat pumps are installed in the same manner as a central air conditioner and extract heat from the outside air to both cool and warm your home. Again, it is important to have a heat pump properly sized for your home and to select one with an energy efficiency rating that matches your budget.
How Do I Know When to Replace My Furnace?
It’s not always the easiest decision, is it? Ideally, you want to replace your furnace system when it’s no longer worth it to try to keep the system running, either from a cost standpoint or from a sanity one. Many situations can actually indicate that furnace replacement will save you money in the long run, including:
- When the furnace is too old. Generally, a furnace, whether it’s gas or electric, is going to run effectively for around 10-15 years—sometimes a bit longer for a gas system. Past that point, you’ll notice higher utility costs, more breakdowns, and overall a much weaker performance, all of which can indicate it’s time to replace.
- When your furnace needs repairs all the time. One repair is one thing, but two, three, or more repairs can end up costing an unnecessary arm and leg. When you’re encountering a situation where you have to call in for repair every year or more, replacing is the more effective option.
- When your current repair needs cost too much. Replacing major components in a system like the heat exchanger can end up costing hundreds if not thousands. In these situations, replacing with an updated unit makes sense, as the long-term benefits outweigh the cost of furnace installation.
- If your furnace routinely underperforms. If a system simply fails to do its job or routinely keeps your Indianapolis home barely above freezing, then you’re throwing money out the window for no gain. Update to a new furnace that’s expertly sized for your needs so you can feel the difference, both in your bank account and in your home.

The Heating Replacement Process
The first step is to inspect your current system or components and determine what type of heating system will work best for you. We will perform a heat load calculation to determine how powerful of a system your home needs and then inspect the ductwork, air handler, and chimney flue to determine if any upgrades will be needed to your home to support a new system.
Once your home is ready for the replacement of a new heating system, we remove any existing components and start the replacement process for the new system. Depending on whether renovations or customizations are needed, the process takes between 1–2 days to complete.
If you are ready for heating replacement in Indianapolis, Lebanon, and Fishers or the surrounding areas, now is the time to call Chapman Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing. One of our expert trained technicians will visit your home and help you determine the best option for your new heating system and then get the replacement process done as quickly and smoothly as possible.

What Is Furnace Efficiency?
If you’ve been shopping around, then you’ve probably seen the term “efficiency” tossed out every which way. But what does it mean? It’s actually an easy thing to answer! In essence, a system’s efficiency is a measurement of how much heat it can generate when compared to how much fuel/resource it uses up. In a gas furnace, the efficiency is typically measured by an AFUE rating, a percent rating that tells you how efficiently the gas furnace uses its fuel. Typical ratings can be as low as 78% or as high as 98% at the top end.
Choosing your ideal system is partially about matching the efficiency of the new unit with your Indianapolis home needs and budget, which is why working with experts when replacing is such a high priority.
Let our heating and air conditioning contractors help you achieve optimal furnace efficiency with our furnace replacement and furnace installation services! Call us at (317) 953-4960, or contact us online to learn more.
