Buying a new heating system is a significant financial investment and if you’ve never gone through the process, it can be overwhelming. To help Ottawa area homeowners, we’ve put together some tips that will help guide you through the process of buying a new high-efficiency furnace.
1. Research Brands and Warranties
Furnace repairs can be expensive, so you’ll want to invest in a brand that’s reliable and stands by their product with comprehensive warranties. Research different manufacturers so you fully understand what is (and isn’t) covered under their warranties. If you run into any questions, don’t hesitate to contact a local manufacturer dealer.
At Team Harding, we only install the best furnace brands, including Daikin, Amana and Goodman and are proud of the warranties they offer, especially Daikin.
2. Wait for Promotions, Incentives and Specials
Many manufacturers offer seasonal promotions for new high-efficiency furnaces. In addition, the government might offer homeowners an incentive to replace outdated systems for more energy-efficient ones. These promotions and incentives can save you thousands of dollars on a new heating system and when combined with an installation company’s special pricing or financing, a new furnace could be extremely affordable.
Our sales team are experts on current incentives and promotions and will walk you through the available options and answer any questions you might have.
3. Pick the Right Installer
Just as important as the furnace is the installation company. The best high-efficiency furnace won’t overcome the problem of a faulty install. For best results, make sure you’re working with a reputable furnace company. You’ll want to know what the company’s policies are regarding labour and installation guarantees and what training and certification installers have.
At Team Harding, customer satisfaction is the most important thing to us and we stand behind our products and installation.
Replacing your heating system is a big financial commitment. Make sure that you’re purchasing the right brand at the best price and that it’s being installed by a reputable HVAC company.
