A brand-new heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system is a significant purchase. In addition to doing a side-by-side comparison of different units, here are three other ways you can make sure you save on a new HVAC system.
Keep an eye out for special offers.
At Collis, we have an entire team dedicated solely to knowing the ins and outs of all of the available rebate and incentive programs out there, so that we can always ensure our customers are receiving every possible savings available. Whether it’s through NYSERDA’s EmPower+ program, utility rebates, NYS Clean Heat, or manufacturer rebates through companies like Carrier, there are several avenues to help you save.
Take advantage of tax credits.
A lot of heating and cooling systems are eligible for residential energy credits. In fact, some of the most popular heating and cooling units are the most qualified for rebates since they’re also the most energy efficient. For instance, if you’re looking to have a heat pump installed, there are sizable tax credits available. This means that you’ll not only save money on your monthly energy bill, but on your initial purchase as well. Talk to your HVAC contractor to learn which models offer the best savings.
Work with a trusted contractor.
By working with a trusted local contractor, you can be sure that you’ll be charged fairly for the unit itself as well as the cost of installation. This will also save you from dealing with issues down the road that are due to improper sizing and installation. Furthermore, you want to work with someone that proudly stands behind their work and will be there for a repair if needed.
