Why Replacing Your Furnace in Summer is a Great Idea
As we move forward towards summer, we find that the sun is shining brightly, the days are longer and the air conditioners are starting to work overtime to maintain the comfortable living environment within our homes. Most people aren’t thinking about winter, much less whether or not they may need to replace their furnace. While it may seem a bit early to begin thinking about replacing your furnace, now is precisely the right time if your current unit needs replacing. There are several reasons why, but here are a few to consider:
It Saves Money
Just as a retail store runs sales on inventory that’s going out-of-season, HVAC manufacturers try to get rid of last year's models in order to make room for the newer versions that arrive in the fall. You may find a great deal on an off-season furnace, whether you’re looking for high-efficiency equipment or something more basic.
It’s More Convenient
Spring and fall are the often the busiest times of year for HVAC maintenance. This is due to the fact that these transitional seasons are the most common times for scheduling annual maintenance. It also happens to be the time of year when people can no longer avoid replacing the heating and air system they’ll need in order to heat and cool their home. However, by evaluating an off-season HVAC replacement, this gives the savvy homeowner a great opportunity to replace the system on his or her schedule.
It Gives You Time to Research Available Options
If you’ve had your heating and air system for a decade or longer, you may be noticing that your heating costs have slowly increased, as well as an increased frequency of repairs. Unfortunately, most heating systems, particularly gas furnaces, only last 10 to 15 years before they begin to wear out. You could test it for another winter and work out the problems if they occur. But with the luxury of time while the weather is warm, you’ll have the peace of mind to begin researching the right furnace replacement. This gives you time to explore the available options balancing cost and efficiency without having to rush to a decision due to bad timing during the winter.
These are just a few reasons why you may want to replace your furnace while it’s warm outside.
