Do You Need A Furnace Upgrade? How To Make Room In Your Budget
When you notice that your furnace is costing you more to run or it’s making strange noises, it may be time to consider a furnace upgrade. This is especially true if you have a furnace that still uses a pilot light, which means it may be 25 years or older. Finding a way to fit a new furnace into your budget can be a challenge, but a furnace is one of life’s necessities since the climate in the Wilmington area is so cold in winter.
When you find a reputable HVAC company, invite a representative to your home who can evaluate what you need for a furnace upgrade. The representative has the training to show you how you can improve your home’s energy efficiency before installing your new unit to help you save money. When you reduce the heating load, you don’t need as large a furnace, lowering the cost of the unit.
Many HVAC companies offer financing programs through the company that manufactures the furnace or through specific banks. These plans are often more competitive than what you can get on your own and are very likely to be better than using a credit card for a furnace upgrade. You may also qualify for rebates that the local utility providers offer, along with tax credits at the local, state or national level.
Listen to the advice that the HVAC comfort consultant gives you about upgrading your heating system. Besides showing you how to reduce your heating load, he can show you how much you will save on your utility bills by choosing a more energy-efficient furnace. Lowering your energy bills may offset much of the cost of installing a new furnace over time.
