People usually complete home improvement projects and maintenance tasks in the summer, such as chimney repair, remodeling and even furnace replacement. While heating isn’t something you typically think about when the weather is hot outside, summer remains one of the best times to have your furnace replaced.
Here are the benefits of replacing your furnace in the warmer months:
Manufacturers tend to release new furnace models toward the start of the fall season, meaning older models are often sold at a lower price in the summer. When looking for a new furnace, go for models with the highest annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) rating you can find. A unit with a higher rating can provide greater fuel savings.
Get the Job Done Faster
Summer may be the busiest season for window, siding and roofing companies, but not for HVAC technicians. This is because homeowners are more likely to schedule maintenance and repairs in the fall and spring to prepare for winter and summer. This means HVAC contractors aren’t as busy during the summer, making it a great time for labor-intensive jobs like furnace replacement.
Avoid Heating Disruptions
Summer is the best time to replace your furnace because you won’t be using it then. In the fall, on the other hand, there may be instances when you want to turn it on. Since your furnace isn’t used during the warmer months, you don’t have to worry about heating disruptions. Also, waiting for cooler weather increases the risk of frozen pipes. Because you use the blower of the furnace with your air conditioner as well, having a better variable-speed fan can help reduce your energy bills in the summer.
