Tips for saving money
Although not as expensive as an A/C, replacing a 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 you can. Local utilities like SWEPCO and Black Hills offer thousands of dollars in rebates for buying energy efficient systems. We put together an up-to-date list of them 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 system and making an even larger investment in a new system. The most important thing to consider is the age of your furnace. The average furnace in the United States lasts 22 years so if your furnace is anywhere close to that age, you should strongly consider replacement. If not, repairing your current unit is probably the the way to go. Keep in mind that if your system is "builder grade" (was installed with the house), there's a good chance it's going to last quite a few years less than average.
3. Get multiple quotes. I know, kind of a "duh" one, but you would be surprised how many people only get one quote for a furnace replacement. Always play it safe and get two or three quotes to make sure no one is trying to take you for a ride.
