Think resale. More that likely it will increase the value of the home more that what you paid for it.

This "green" hysteria is driving up the prices of anything that can claim to be "green". With a 90+ furnace you can call your house "green" and will be a big selling point.

That's for the feds. Check your state.

Plus the "placed in service" date can be January 1st, 2009 which will get you a $150 tax credit if the furnace is 95% or better. Just get it installed in December and pay the bill in January. Placed in service is a rather nebulous term. In Oregon you can't get the tax credit ($350) until the bill is paid.

There are also rebates from most energy suppliers these days. I got another $200 rebate on my furnace.

Here is the list of state incentives. Looks like they are all loans. Check through this and see if there is anything that pertains to you.

Also call the state listed at the bottom to see about upgrading to a 95% furnace and if there are any tax credits.

Then call Pittsburgh and see if there have any local incentives. Also your gas company would be able to get you a lot of this information.

It is worth the time and energy to do this. It could save you a lot of money.

It sounds like you are using a contractor to do this. Ask them where you get info on the rebates and tax credits. Also the gas company will tell you what the latest is.

Good call going with the 93% unit.

Most of the time yes. There are 90-94% and then 95% and higher. They pay more for higher efficiencies.
