Have you ever heard the saying,” If it ain’t broken, don’t fix it”? Well in most cases this may be sound advice, but we can think of at least one thing that should be fixed even if it’s not broken: the air conditioner. First of all, you are probably wondering why you should fix a functional air conditioner, and you are also probably wondering why we are even talking about air conditioning in Chicago when winter is right around the corner. Well, there is an answer for both of these questions.
This advice mainly applies to consumers who are looking for a new furnace unit. If your old furnace is run down or inefficient, you may be considering replacing it. Furnaces nowadays come with fancy gizmos and gadgets that boost efficiency and lower energy costs. However, if all you do is replace the furnace, you would be missing out on some amazing savings. For starters, your new energy efficient furnace will be held back by the old air conditioner that you have connected to it. The high efficiency of the new unit will be too much for the old a/c to compete with and the old air conditioner will drag down the efficiency of the new unit.
Discounts and Rebates
Four Seasons Heating and Air Conditioning offers extreme discounts on air conditioner when they are purchased in the off season and when they are paired with a furnace installation. This is because as we enter the busy winter seasons in Chicago, we have to make room for furnaces and boilers, and air conditioning units need to be sold. If you wait until next summer, the prices we offer now may be gone.
Finally, the most time sensitive reason of all to purchase a new furnace and air conditioner this winter is the energy efficient tax rebates that the government is offering. If you act soon, you could get up to a $1,500 tax rebate come tax seasons next year. The rebate is good on qualifying Energy Star rated furnace and air conditioning units. Optimize your rebate and purchase both units! But, this offer is time sensitive because come January 1st 2011, your chance will be gone.
Be a Smart Consumer
Think of it like this, the furnace is old and needs to be replaced. The air conditioner is probably just as old and in just as much need of replacement as the furnace. So, why wait until summer to replace a unit that is in need of replacement now. Don’t miss out on the savings, and make a smart investment in your home today with the help of Four Seasons Heating and Air Conditioning.
