Why Spring is the Best Time to Buy a New Furnace

Finally, spring has arrived! The snow is melting, the birds are chirping, the sun is shining… and your furnace keeps backfiring! Since when did that become part of the picture of spring?

The average life expectancy of the typical home furnace is between 16 and 20 years. Getting a new furnace can be a major purchase for your home. Maybe you haven’t had the time, are trying to squeeze every bit of life out of your current system, or are flat out procrastinating. Well, the time to buy a new furnace has arrived. Instead of continuing to waver back and forth, here’s why spring (yes, we said SPRING) is the right time to replace your furnace.

More Money Toward Your Dream Car

Picture those heated seats, heated steering wheel, panoramic sun roof – all the bells and whistles. Spring is a slower time of year for HVAC companies, I’m sure you can imagine why. Spring furnace replacement can score you some great discounts across the board, including the best rebates. Plus, find deals on last year’s furnace models!

Not Breaking the Budget

Don’t blow your tax refund like you did last year, Karen. Get yourself a new furnace! Winter typically closes the wallet a little more after all of the holiday spending. Running the risk of having to replace your furnace in the dead of winter can also put an unexpected strain on your budget. Spring is the perfect time to plan ahead a little more and finally fit this new furnace into your budget.

Saving the World One Polar Bear at a Time

Dad, it’s 2019 and it’s time to realize that energy efficiency doesn’t mean keeping the heat set at 60°. There are better ways! If it’s time to buy a new furnace, make everyone happy and pick one that’s good for the environment and even better for your wallet. Old furnaces mixed with harsh Wisconsin winters can bog down the efficiency of your home. The energy used in the average house is responsible for twice as many greenhouse gas emissions as the average car! By using less energy at home, you will help reduce emissions contributing to the environment. A warm house keeps the kids happy, low energy bills keep Mom and Dad happy, and energy efficiency keeps the polar bears even happier!

So Happy Together ?

Like spring barbecues and beer, you can have one or the other, but really it’s best when they happen together. Depending on the age of your furnace and AC unit, you may want to consider replacing both at the same time. Your furnace and AC each have their own parts, but they share the indoor unit, the blower motor. If both units are ready for an upgrade and you only choose to upgrade your AC unit, but leave the furnace and blower motor as is, your brand new AC won’t be able to operate as efficiently as it was designed to. While you’re considering a new AC this time of year, it won’t hurt to have your technician take a look at your furnace too. Several homeowners shy away from replacing both units simply due to cost. We get it, we are homeowners too! That’s why we offer 0% financing for HVAC Installations.

Spring is the best time to replace your furnace for a number of reasons. It’s like waiting until the day after Christmas when everything goes on sale! Our comfort technicians are ready to help you make your decision, all you have to do is ask.
