If you’re nursed a temperamental furnace through the heating season, you know how frustrating it is to have a heating system that doesn’t work properly. It may have been a serious aggravation, but your decision to delay the purchase of a replacement furnace is likely to have several benefits. With spring finally arriving, it’s a good time to check with your local HVAC supplier for end-of-season specials on furnaces, heat pumps and other heating system components. By buying off-season, you can likely save a lot of money and acquire a much better system than you could have bought with a mid-winter purchase.
By buying a new furnace at the end of heating season, it’s very possible you’ll be able to get it for a better price than if you had bought the unit earlier. HVAC suppliers may be motivated to clear out existing stocks of cold-weather equipment at a discount to make room for air conditioners and warm-weather inventory. With the demand for furnaces at a reduced level, the equipment and installation may be cheaper. Watch for discounts and specials at your trusted HVAC supplier, or simply ask for a better rate since you’re making the purchase at season’s end.
Waiting till early spring to buy a furnace gives you more time to search for a heating system that will meet your needs at a price you can afford. You can spend additional days or weeks searching for a good bargain. You can thoroughly investigate other types of heating options such as geothermal heat pumps. You can also evaluate the merits of high-efficiency heating and take the time to find a unit that will provide the best home comfort and ongoing savings on your utility bills.
