If your HVAC system is dated, you may be on the fence about whether or not replacing it with a more energy-efficient version is worth the cost. Here are some things that you should consider when thinking about upgrading your HVAC system–
Monthly Utility Costs
One big way that you can save money with a new HVAC system is by reducing your energy consumption and therefore your monthly utility bill. While the amount of money that you can save with energy-efficient improvements varies on a case-by-case basis, EnergyStar.gov reports that some homeowners who upgrade to Energy Star-certified heating and cooling equipment save more than $100 per year.
Repair and Maintenance Costs
Another area where you can save money if you choose to upgrade to a newer, more efficient system is in regards to repairs and maintenance. Indeed, the older that your current system gets, the more money that you’ll need to spend in repairs; breakdowns will become more common as the years go on. While you’ll have to pay more upfront for a new system, these costs can be offset, in part, by delaying repair needs for years.
Keep in mind that who you choose to install your new system can have a large impact on its efficiency and the amount of money you save. Always choose an HVAC installation company with years of experience and a trusted reputation, such as Van Drunen Heating & Air Conditioning. Poor installation can lead to leaks, improper air volume, and other problems that can be more costly than beneficial.
The Cost of the System and Financing Options
Of course, you should always consider the cost of new heating or cooling equipment and whether or not those costs fit within your budget. Depending upon your financial situation and other circumstances, you may be eligible for a low-interest loan. Talk to our team about financing options to learn more.
