When you need a new heating system, you might feel most stressed about the cost. Nobody really wants to invest money into a home necessity, and we understand it can feel like a burden. However, there are ways to lessen the impact of the cost and see savings for longer.
One of the most important things you should know about purchasing a new heater is that, as long as you get an efficient system that is the right size for your home, you should notice energy savings right away. Over time, the operating cost of a less expensive system is likely to add up. It’s the high efficiency heaters (with a bigger investment) that add up over time.
In fact, if you compromise on heating quality by purchasing a system of a smaller size, you could end up without any heat at all. Undersized systems break down frequently and cannot last nearly as long as they are supposed to. A properly sized furnace or boiler with a high AFUE rating for efficiency is going to save you the most.
Besides, you may be able to take advantage of special deals or financing options to make your furnace more affordable upfront. Talk to local technicians, who are always happy to help you figure out what you can do to lessen the burden.
Tax Credits and Utility Rebates
Upgrading to a new high-efficiency heating system (or high-efficiency air conditioner) qualifies you for tax credits when you file the following year. And your local utility company could offer rebates for specific upgrades as well!
