Reasons Why Summer Furnace Replacement is a Good Idea

Summer is the peak season for home improvements, from kitchen remodeling and roof installation to landscaping. One essential improvement that you should consider doing during this time is replacing your old furnace. In this blog, residential and commercial HVAC contractor Reliable AC & Heat shares the reasons why it’s a good idea to have a new furnace installed this season.

Less Chance of Delay

While summer is the busiest season for most home improvement companies, this actually isn’t true for HVAC contractors. This is because homeowners tend to schedule their maintenance and repairs in the spring and fall in preparation for the summer and winter seasons, respectively. HVAC contractors aren’t as busy during the summer, which makes it the ideal time for labor-intensive work such as furnace installation. This also means less pressure to make sure your heating system works because you don’t have to worry about staying warm. You’ll have plenty of time to test and even troubleshoot it if needed without your family freezing while waiting for the heat to come on.

More Time to Research Options

Warmer weather gives you plenty of time to look around for options other than a furnace if you’re considering switching to a different system. For instance, geothermal heat pump systems feature coils hidden in the ground. These coils harvest heat from the earth or nearby bodies of water, which helps reduce the energy needed to generate heat. While commercial HVAC systems are generally reversible heat pumps, commercial property owners can benefit from the additional time to research the most efficient equipment.

Saving You Money

If having last year’s model isn’t a problem for you, you may be able to save money on your furnace replacement. Furnace manufacturers launch new products toward the beginning of the fall season, which means older models will likely be sold at a discount. Just make sure to choose the furnace with the highest AFUE (annual fuel utilization efficiency) rating you can find. The higher the rating, the more heating you’ll get for every dollar you spend on fuel.
