Here are a few things currently happening that will cost you much more money if you choose to wait to replace your system:
- There are utility rebates for high-efficiency systems in addition to recycling rebates. The utility rebates can vary,
but we usually see $450, and the recycling rebate is $500.
- Your older system costs you at least $900 more in utilities if you choose to wait three years to replace your
system, as well as costing you at least another $1,000 in repairs.
- Inflation. I know you’re tired of hearing about it. Supply chain issues, raw material costs, manufacturing plant
shutdowns, and government regulations. Things are going to cost more in the future. We’ve seen price increases of
15%-20% in the last year alone. We think this will ease slightly, but we are still anticipating 10%-15% each year for
the next several years. This increase could mean another $3,000 if you wait 3 years to replace your system.
This all means you will likely pay around $5,500 more than necessary if you choose to wait.
If we have learned anything over the 72 years in this business, it is that this is the slowest time of the year for us. We want to
keep our technicians working full-time, and provide you, our neighbor, the opportunity to avoid approaching price increases
at the same time. To that end, we’d like to offer you the opportunity to replace your heating and cooling system at last year’s
This means that if you replace your furnace and air conditioner before March 31, we are going to increase the recycling
rebate to $1,200. You can also take advantage of tax credits on high-efficiency systems of up to $1,200 for furnaces & air
conditioners and up $2,000 for heat pump systems.
