By just replacing your old broken, energy-sapping air conditioning unit, you can save money right away. Newer models are always more efficient on energy usage than older models. It simply makes sense, and with Philadelphia Electric Company (PECO) seeking a 2.2% energy increase in 2018, it will really make an impact on your money saving.
In addition to replacing your outdated air conditioning system, there are additional ways in which you can save money when you are choosing your new AC unit and having it professionally installed.
HVAC Philly, Philadelphia’s top-rated AC repair, AC replacement, and AC maintenance professionals, explain the top two ways to save the most money when you replace your air conditioning unit.
- If your air conditioning system is around the 12-15 year age range, you most likely are aware that it is definitely time to replace it. What you should also consider is replacing your furnace in conjunction with your AC unit. By doing both jobs simultaneously, you can save significantly in the long run. You will be able to be sure that the new thermostat you get to fit with your new air conditioning system also works perfectly with your updated furnace as well.
- Applying for financing: HVAC Philly provides several financing options to their customers in the greater Philadelphia region such as Home Projects® Visa Credit Card, and Keystone Help® Loan Program, that can help you pay for energy efficiency upgrades to your home.
Most importantly, if you implement changes to your whole house to increase energy efficiency by investing in components like a smart thermostat, upgraded insulation, and double pane, energy efficient windows, any of these, it will be more favorable for you to get assistance in paying for through financing options. These programs are easy to qualify for and generally include no interest and no money down, provided you have some equity in your home to draw from.
If you are considering installing a new AC unit and are feeling wary of what the cost may be, and if you are able to afford installation financially, review financing options listed above, or contact your local HVAC professional to get an estimate on cost. Speak with the technician about what your expectations are, and work together to create a plan of action that works best for your home and family.
Keep in mind that although it may be tempting to do the installation yourself, to cut cost HVAC Philly advises that you call an experienced and trained HVAC professional, who will assist you in saving money where it counts most.
