Spring has sprung, complete with warm weather and beautiful blooms. But just because the cooler days are gone doesn’t mean you should neglect those furnace repairs you’ve been meaning to get to. And if your furnace is on its last legs? There’s no time quite like springtime to invest in a brand new model.
Here are a few excellent reasons to consider buying a new furnace this season.
More moderate spring temperatures mean homeowners are relying less on their heating and cooling systems for a limited time. But it also makes for the best time to replace your system, as you’ll be able to survive a day or two while the new furnace or air conditioning unit is installed and adjusted to meet the needs of your home. Not to mention great outdoor conditions for the general contractors installing your equipment.
More Scheduling Flexibility
As previously mentioned, spring typically produces more moderate temperatures, which means fewer emergency HVAC situations and less use of your HVAC system in general. So when you’re scheduling your new furnace installation, your HVAC company will have the ability to be more flexible and accommodating to your schedule.
Planning to have a replacement furnace installed is much more cost effective when compared to the alternative of emergency furnace repairs or replacement. Spring is generally the best time to have an HVAC inspection performed anyway, so you’ll be able to effectively determine if this is the season for a new furnace or not during your twice-yearly inspection. Boilers typically last 10 to 15 years, so make sure you’re taking age into account during your inspection as well.
Many people plan on using tax refunds for new cars, but why not put it towards a new furnace? Not only is it a smart purchase, it’s something you’ll likely use for the next decade or more.
Buying a new furnace might seem like a burden, but in truth, spring is the best season to take on the project. Why wait to give your HVAC system an upgrade?
