The True Cost of “Waiting Until it Breaks”

A home comfort heating and air conditioning system is designed to last 15 to 25 years with proper maintenance. Annual maintenance is required by manufacturers to maintain warranties and keep your system operating safely and efficiently. A trained, certified technician can identify potential problems in a well-maintained system long before a breakdown occurs, which often happens on the coldest day!

Remember, nothing was ever designed or engineered to operate efficiently when dirty.

When it’s time to replace your home comfort system, delaying can be costly. The expenses on energy bills and repairs can exceed the cost of replacement. For instance, an older furnace operating at 70% efficiency loses 30 cents on every dollar, whereas a new 98% efficient furnace loses only 2 cents on the dollar—a 28-cent improvement for every dollar spent!

Additionally, an older furnace costs an average of $500 a year in unexpected repairs to keep running and will eventually need to be replaced. Replacing now avoids the cost of these repairs and high utility bills, not to mention the inconvenience of unexpected breakdowns.

On average, prices increase by 6% per year. The cost of replacing a furnace five years from now could be 30% to 40% more than today. A new, high-efficiency furnace replacement could cost $5,000. Financing this amount over four years at 6.99% APR results in a monthly payment of $119.71. When you factor in the savings from lower utility bills, avoiding costly repairs, and inflation, the financing essentially pays for itself.

Now is the perfect time to enhance your home’s comfort, safety, reliability, and real estate value.
