80 vs 95 percent new gas furnace
balloon frame house - no insulation in walls
large ducts in walls
converting from oil to gas
usually keep heat 65 day, 55 at night and close off some non used rooms
apx 1500 sq ft, 2 floors
Converting from oil to gas and confused about what % efficiency furnace to get. Furnace guy recommends Rheem 80 2 stage, ECM. Less repairs than 95%.
With 95, I need a chimney liner for my water heater which is an additional expense. Don't know how much yet.
Rebates end 12/31 supposedly. Not sure if worth the extra money. From what I hear only the 95% will be sold after May. Is the 80% cheaper because they need to get rid of them? Is it better to wait till May and maybe the 95% will cost less or will the problems be ironed out if I wait?
Don't want to spend more than I need but don't want to be left behind with a furnace that is not up to date. Advise appreciated - thanks.
