A Guide to Saving Money on a New Furnace

Furnaces are known to last longer than air conditioning units. However, when the time finally comes to change out your old system, it may be too expensive. While it’s important to prioritize an expense like this, taking shortcuts and compromising the quality and performance of your new furnace must be avoided. To guide you, here Stone Heating and Air shares some tips to consider when purchasing your new furnace from an HVAC company.

New Furnace

•  Ask for referrals. It doesn’t hurt to ask friends and family for recommendations for contractors. This way, you’ll have a shorter list of technicians to choose from when you need to call for an inspection of your home and equipment. Before hiring them, you can easily ask them about labor and material fees and the step-by-step process they follow.

•  Compare furnaces. When consulting home heating companies, ensure they’re drawing up estimates for the same product and service. Take note if one contractor quotes you $3,000 for a unit, while another presents you with a significantly lower price but fails to mention installation costs.

•  Replace your furnace and air conditioner at the same time. Although it will be more expensive, replacing your heating and air conditioning units at the same time will allow you to save more money in the long run. If you choose this option, you can be sure that both units are compatible and capable of delivering optimal efficiency together. Moreover, new AC units feature new technology that can lower your cooling costs. This enables homeowners to save on energy costs to a greater extent than they do with the units that they currently have.
