Elite Series Gas Furnaces Offer High Efficiency and Outstanding Features

It’s not called the Elite Series for no reason. These gas furnaces will provide 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. Besides efficiency and reliable heat, the Elite Series gas furnaces have tons of impressive features. Learn more about each model below. When you’re ready to take the next step toward a gas furnace replacement, call Guidry's Air Conditioning & Refrigeration Service in Raceland at 985-537-6795 or schedule an appointment online.
