Anytime you need to replace your home’s HVAC equipment it will cost you. Even on cool days, the expenses can add up over time if you’re not careful! That’s why it makes sense to maintain your current HVAC and get good repairs only when absolutely needed.
Sometimes though, HVAC ought to be replaced purely because the system is no longer as efficient as it used to be when it first came on the market, or it’s too old and showing signs of aging and failure all too often. Once you get a quote from your HVAC technician, your next thought may be as to how you can get a discount when it’s time to get a new system for your home. Here are a few suggestions as to how to do just that.
Only shop in low seasons for each unit
Just because you can find air conditioners in winter does not necessarily mean you will get the best deal on it. The low seasons for shopping for heating and cooling is ideally the same as you would hire a technician—spring for furnaces, fall for air conditioners. You can always ask for an off-season discount while shopping around these times of the year.
Check out rebate offers
As we mentioned in our previous blog post about saving money, even to this day there are lots of local utility companies that offer rebates and incentives to homeowners in need of new HVAC. Several other resources may be offering good deals or store rebates, even if you aren’t a member. Examples of these resources include:
- BC Hydro
- Energy Star
- Angie’s List
Sometimes submitting for multiple utility rebates can actually stack up offers; this is a great way to remove a large chunk of expense from your new HVAC’s cost.
It’s recommended that if you do receive any rebate offers, you go over them and your options with a qualified HVAC technician or company. Some rebates may only be applicable to the most expensive HVAC systems on the market, so you may get a better deal by buying a mid-level unit that’s not eligible for a rebate.
Contests may help (sort of)
This isn’t a 100% reliable way to save on HVAC, but it can be handy if you’re feeling lucky. On occasion, our HVAC company hosts a contest on social media with the prizes being brand new equipment. Past contestants have won portable air conditioners among other prizes! It’s not the best way to get a discount on equipment, but if you’re feeling like luck is on your side, it’s worth a try.
Choose a trustworthy HVAC company
The best HVAC team will actually be licensed and work with you to figure out the best new HVAC system for your home that’s within your budget. While many systems exist on the market, each one is different and not every single one of them is meant for residential purposes. Our HVAC company knows this and we know how important it is for you to stay comfortable while also being able to afford that sense of comfort. That’s why we often suggest SNAP to some of our customers if they’re feeling like they need help with payments and new HVAC (it really can help!).
