What it Takes to Afford an Energy-Efficient Air Conditioning and Heating System
The weather is heating up and your electricity bill might be, too. The changing of seasons is often a great time to upgrade your air conditioning system, but the last thing you want to do is watch your finances get out of control. We get it, hearing the words “you need a new unit” is scary. It’s an expense you may not have been prepared for, and you’re left wrestling with saving money versus protecting your home.
What if we told you, you could take control of your bill? Lucky for you, there are a few options and tips to help you save money on your energy bills, reduce your carbon footprint, and improve your home’s indoor air quality.
You don’t have to purchase a new system upfront!
Of course, you want to be responsible when weighing your financing options, but you can make a plan for paying for your system over time.
You can acquire personal loans from your bank, and these typically have fixed interest rates and payment terms that make it easy to budget for monthly payments.
Home equity loans are another option if you own your home and have built up equity on it. These loans have lower interest rates than personal loans, and the interest may even be tax-deductible.
Additionally, many HVAC companies offer financing options. Always ask about these before a new install! You can check out our plans and shoot us a message to learn more.
Another way to save money (and the Earth!) is to invest in an energy-efficient system. You might think an energy-efficient system could be costly, but they actually use less energy to operate than older, out-of-date machines! By upgrading, you can reduce your energy bills, saving money over time. Compare the energy savings of different systems and ask your heating and cooling professional what fits best in your home! Your best interest is our best interest. We want to hear your concerns and help walk you through your options.
Maintenance & Repair
One of the most important things you can do to save money and protect your home’s and family’s health is to stay up-to-date on maintenance and repair. It can be scary taking a look at your system and potentially being told that you need a new one.
However, keeping up with the health of your heating and cooling system saves you money in the long run. Replacing it on time rather than procrastinating is not only a financially smart decision, but it also protects your family from airborne illness and discomfort.
Additionally, it’s a good idea to factor potential upgrades into your budget early so you aren’t caught off guard!
