Have you spent the winter wondering if you should replace your furnace and weigh your options? If your aging furnace seems like it is on its last leg, you are actually in luck. Spring is the perfect time to replace your furnace.
Reasons Spring is the Best Month for Furnace Replacement
At AJ Danboise Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Electrical, we are always happy to take care of our customers when they need a new furnace year-round. But we definitely recommend replacing your furnace in the spring, and here are a few reasons why.
Your furnace has a lifespan of about 15 years. If you are nearing that expiration date, you can’t be sure exactly when it will go out and stop functioning properly. Discovering that your furnace has sputtered to a halt in the middle of next winter’s biggest snowstorm will be inconvenient, uncomfortable, and potentially dangerously cold for you and your family. If you go ahead and replace your old furnace in the spring, you will gladly thank yourself when winter rolls around and you don’t have to worry about your furnace holding up throughout the season.
The pleasant months of spring are the slow season for HVAC manufacturers. In an effort to meet sales quotas, the manufacturers sometimes offer discounts on heating and cooling equipment. Check for special offers on furnaces in April through June and find out if you can score a deal.
Weigh Your Options
Since you are replacing your furnace proactively instead of in a panic after it stopped working, you have plenty of time to consider which model and features will best fit your family’s needs. Some equipment can increase comfort, while still other options can save you energy and lower your utility bills each month. Best of all, a carefully planned Spring replacement allows you to figure out the best budgeting system to pay off your new unit.
Use Your Tax Return
As an added bonus, with spring comes tax returns. You might be able to help cover a nice chunk of the cost of your unit with your rebate money! This can help you better assess which type of furnace will be ideal for your home and budget.
Since you are not replacing your unit frantically during winter as you try to stay warm, you can plan your installation according to your convenience. For everyone in the HVAC industry, spring is a lot less hectic too. That means you should have more scheduling options for a timely installation.
If your furnace is nearing (or past) age 15, it is a ticking clock just waiting to fail on you at the worst possible moment. If you go ahead and replace your old furnace this spring, you can enjoy the benefits and spend next winter worry-free.
