If your furnace just made it through this past winter season, now that spring has arrived, it’s the ideal time to consider replacing it. The average lifespan of a furnace is about 15 years, so if yours is showing signs of advancing age, upgrading this spring can give you the assurance of having a reliable and efficient heating system next winter. Spring is the best time to replace a furnace for other reasons too:
There’s usually a lull that occurs between the hectic heating and cooling seasons, and this is when HVAC manufacturers and installers typically offer significant savings on equipment installations. This means you can help them fill their sales quotas and keep their staff busy and productive and get a great deal too.
No Loss of Comfort
Now that the temperatures are moderate and you don’t need to heat or cool your home, you’re not at any risk of any discomfort while you’re having a new furnace installed. If your air conditioner is getting older and less reliable too, you might decide to look for a package deal that lets you replace both components at the same time so you’re ready for the hot and cold weather that lies ahead this year.
Replacing your furnace by choice this spring, rather than in response to a sudden and unexpected mid-season failure next winter, gives you an opportunity to consider all your options and choose the most budget-friendly financing method. Since spring is tax refund time too, you may find that you have extra cash to put toward the purchase.
Time on Your Hands
Since you’re not in a rush to get a new furnace installed to keep your home warm and livable, you have a chance to compare different available features – like variable-speed blowers, ECM motors, multi-stage burners and smart controls – so you can choose equipment that offers you greater comfort and energy savings over the long term.
