Why not reach out to the RFD Resident HVAC @newlyborn his company is - Fair Deal Heating & Air Conditioning. You can find reviews here from other RFD users - https://forums.redflagdeals.com/new-fur ... 322131/25/

Enercare is never worth it, overpriced and if you rent they lock you in for many years so you pay double or triple.

Thanks for your recommendation.

How about hybrid? Is it worth it? Do we get any rebate now?

No problem,

I'm not sure which rebates are available now but I think generally for reliability personally I would stick to a regular Furnace/AC they are tried tested and true. You can expect them to last many years. Where the newer hybrid options are newer and have no proven themselves IMO also parts may be an issue too. With a regular furnace if it breaks down there is a good chance the HVAC company can go to their supplier and get you up and running same day.

Either way best to talk to @newlyborn about it so he can provide you info based on his years of experience.

Depending on your hvac size/setup and location a hybrid system might be much better value.

For example, I'm putting in a standard gas furnace and heat pump. The heat pump will provide the cooling for my house and heat down to a set temperature. Below the set temperature the gas furnace will supply heat. My setup also qualifies for Enbridge rebate of $6500. So in the end I'm paying close to half the cost of a traditional furnace and AC. I will also have a more efficient (higher seer) hp and burn less fossil fuels and the HP will be much more quiet in my backyard.

Lots of post on RFD regarding this type of rebate setup.
