Tips for saving money
Although not as expensive as an A/C, installing a new furnace is still a large investment. The good news is that it's an investment you can save a substantial amount of money on, if you do it right. Here are some no-brainer ways to save:
1. Get all the utility rebates and tax credits you can. If you have Black Hills Energy, you can get $400 in rebates for installing an energy efficient furnace. In addition to that, the federal government will chip in a few hundred dollars of tax rebates. Read up on the details here.
2. Think hard on repair vs replacement. A lot of people get stuck in the nasty predicament of having to choose between an expensive repair for an aging furnace and making an even larger investment in a new unit. The most important thing to consider is the age of your furnace. The average furnace in the United States lasts 22 years according to the U.S. Department of Energy so if your furnace is anywhere close to that age, replacement is probably something you should think hard about. If it's not, repairing your current unit is likely the way to go.
3. Get multiple quotes. I know this is kind of common sense, but you'd be amazed how many people just get one quote for major work like a furnace replacement. Play it safe and take the extra time to schedule two or three quotes so you can make sure you aren't being taken advantage of. If it helps, you can also read our post here on how much a new HVAC system costs in Northwest Arkansas. It has real quotes, utility bills pre and post change-out, and more (it's for a full system change-out rather than furnace only, but still should be helpful).
