The holiday season is in full swing and for most of us, our budgets are being stretched to accommodate all the holiday shopping, meals and entertainment. All the expenses add up – and quickly.
One thing that is likely not in the budget is replacing your home’s HVAC system. However, tis the season when your heating system is working its hardest to keep your home cozy and your family comfortable. When you factor in the Farmer’s Almanac prediction of colder winter for many across the country, your old HVAC system may be working harder than it should, resulting in uneven heating and cooling problems. Not far away may be costly repair issues or possible system breakdown.
That’s why now may be the time to replace your worn or ineffective system. As it is unlikely the jolly old elf from the North Pole will be able to help you out if a new heating and cooling system is on your list, it’s time to explore other options. Keeping in mind the financial crunch the holidays bring, pulling the trigger on such an expenditure can be made easier and more budget friendly by taking advantage of many options. Special financing through Synchrony is available on many manufacturers’ systems, and they also offer significant rebates on their products. Federal tax credits are also available when you upgrade your system with one that is more efficient and environmentally friendly.
Even with financing assistance, rebates and tax credits, the thought of a monthly payment may be a bit daunting. But one thing to consider is the savings you will realize on your utility bills. A new system – especially one fitted with a programmable thermostat that allows you more control over your system – will not work as hard or as long as your old one, thereby reducing energy consumption. Various studies have shown that energy costs can be reduced by as much as 50%, real savings that can be applied towards paying off the new system. And don’t forget the noticeable difference in consistent, total home comfort you will experience with a newer, more efficient system.
We understand that replacing your heating and cooling system now may feel like unwanted stress at the holidays. But we are here to help make it easy and affordable. The peace of mind you’ll have heading into the new year with improved comfort and utility savings will be reason to celebrate.
