Although many homeowners are reluctant to upgrade their furnace because of the price tag attached, a new high-efficiency furnace can actually save you money in the long run. Costly heating and repair bills can add up over time and end up costing you more than a new unit would have, so don’t wait, install a new furnace and start 2022 off right.
A lot of homeowners have the mentality that it’s better to stick with the unit you’ve got instead of installing a new furnace. The reality is, if you’re constantly pouring money into repairing a furnace that is 10-15 years old or older, you would be much better off replacing it with a new high-efficiency model. Repair costs add up over time, and the money you spend on them isn’t an investment in the future, it’s just a temporary fix. A unit that requires constant repairs is unreliable, which means you could also be faced with having to call for after-hours emergency heating service in a pinch, and those rates are higher. When you break it down, it’s usually much more cost-effective to invest in a new unit than it is to pour money into frequent repairs, not to mention the peace of mind you’ll get from knowing your unit is reliable and under warranty.
We’ve seen units that are 25-30 years old and still functioning, and homeowners wear them as a badge of honour. It’s nice to see people who have taken care of their equipment and done everything to keep it running for so long, but unfortunately, furnaces that are that old can cost you a lot of money on your monthly bills. Older furnaces burn a lot more fuel than new high-efficiency units do in order to heat your home. The money you’ll save on your monthly bills when you install a new furnace to replace your old one will often cover a substantial portion of the cost of the new unit within a few years.
We understand that installing a new furnace can be financially stressful, but it’s an investment in your home’s comfort and safety that will save you significant amounts of money on utility bills. There are also a number of financing options and promotions to help you install a new furnace within your budget.
