Mar 10 ,2014

New FurnaceIf “old reliable” isn’t so reliable anymore and you’re a lot colder in your home than you used to be, it may be time for you to consider purchasing a new furnace. While you may be able to get the repairs necessary to get you through the rest of these cold months, you don’t want to have to deal with being uncomfortable next winter. The pros with Northern’s One Hour Heating and Air Conditioning would like to share some tips that can help when you’re ready for a furnace replacement.

Pick the Right Time to Buy

Typically, you want to get a new furnace when business tends to be slower, such as early spring or early fall. When the temperatures are milder, contractors typically offer substantial discounts. Furnace manufacturers also offer attractive deals during these times because they want to keep the factories humming. No matter what time of the year it may be, however, it’s always better to buy a new furnace before your old one breaks down completely.

Look for Rebates

You may be able to find substantial government and utility rebates for high efficiency units. If you’re looking for a new furnace, you should look into these as well. Not only does the federal government offer rebates from time to time, local governments also offer them.

Before You Make That Purchase…

  • Make sure you know all of the different options available.
  • Have a professional analyze your heating needs to make sure you get the right system for your home.
  • Take your time and choose the right contractor. Ask for references and look at Internet reviews of the companies you are considering.
