I am looking for some real world results and experiences people in N VA have had with upgrading their HVAC. Do you really see the savings in your energy bills? How much? I currently have a SEER 10 A/C and a 78 % efficient natural gas furnace. I believe they are getting close to the end of their life. I was thinking of replacing them while I can still get the tax credit. Are the high efficiency units really worth it from a cost perspective? I would disappointed if it took me 20 years to recoup the extra cost. Also does anyone have any experience with the Heat Pump / Gas Furnace Hybrids. Do they work well in this climate (Northern VA)? Thanks

I am curious what type of results people have experience. The more info the better (what did you have, what did you upgrade too, approx cost, how much saved in monthly utilities, how big of house, any regrets ,etc.)
