Elite Series Gas Furnaces Offer High Efficiency and Outstanding Features

It’s not called the Elite Series for no reason. These gas furnaces deliver excellent comfort for your home that doesn’t empty your wallet every month. Energy efficiency is a primary feature of each model, and with AFUE ratings* like these, you’ll wonder why you didn’t replace your furnace earlier. Aside from efficiency and reliable heat, the Elite Series gas furnaces have many great features. Find details about each model below. When you’re ready to get started with a gas furnace replacement, call Central Heating & Plumbing in New Castle at 724-658-7111 or schedule an appointment online.
