Thrifty HVAC System Replacement in Hilliard

Tempstar furnace, energy saving air conditioner and Honeywell F-100 air cleaner provide energy savings for a Hilliard, OH home.

BEFORE / AFTER – Tempstar N8MX furnace, Honeywell F-100 whole-house media air cleaner and new ductwork
Heating & Cooling problem

For the second consecutive year, this homeowner added costly R22 refrigerant to their air conditioner because of a leak in the indoor coil. At 25 years old, the entire system had exceeded its design-life. The old furnace was less than 70% fuel efficient, had a fussy standing-pilot ignition system, and the air filter access was inside the furnace.

  • Hilliard, OH 43026

After assessing the existing arrangement, and conversing with the homeowner with options to save on energy costs, a simple system replacement was custom-designed:

  • Tempstar 80% efficiency furnace has a great fit because of its short cabinet—the “step-up” model N8MX with high-efficiency ECM blower motor was selected.
  • New indoor coil fit on top, adapted to the supply air plenum, and new refrigerant lines to prevent incompatible oil contamination.
  • Honeywell F100 media air cleaner, because the readily-available 16 x 25 x 4” air filter is an economical way to improve indoor air quality.
  • Basic air conditioner, N4A3 rated the minimum 13 SEER efficiency, far more efficient than the previous 9 SEER unit.
  • Inexpensive Honeywell programmable thermostat meets the state code.
  • Payment with Special Financing terms on the purchase was provided by Wells Fargo
  • Premium Protection Plan extended warranty covers warranty repair and diagnostic fees until 10th anniversary.

This homeowner now enjoys heat from a furnace with modern electronic ignition, and high-efficiency blower motor.

Project Benefits & Details

  • New Tempstar air conditioner is a compact size, quieter, and uses the current R410A refrigerant.
