Nothing lasts forever.
Unfortunately this old adage applies in a big way to your home’s major appliances. And we can’t think of a more major appliance than your home’s air conditioning and heating system. It will need to be replaced eventually, and the key is knowing when is the right time. Your friends at Dixie Electric, Plumbing and Air are here to help you make that decision by focusing on a few key points.
- First, and maybe most importantly, don’t wait until your current air conditioning or heating system breaks down. We all know that always happens at the most inopportune time (extreme temps), which means you’re either going to be sweating or shivering while you wait for an HVAC contractor to come to your rescue.
- Remember, too, that our industry is busiest during extreme weather days. You might be down the list a bit or on the list of a company that is not the quality service you expect. Plan ahead and replace your inefficient system before it’s a crisis. Another good reason – and one which appeals to us all – is saving money. New cooling and heating systems get the job done more efficiently than older homecomfort systems, saving you money on your utility bills. Depending upon the age of your old system, it may be possible to cut your utility costs by up to 60%.
- A new system can also help on your tax return. During the recent legislative session, lawmakers agreed to reauthorize the $500 Residential Energy Tax Credit for two years: retroactively for 2015 and through the upcoming 2016 calendar year.
- In addition, you may also be eligible for further discounts on indoor air quality improvements and specified water heaters, humidifiers and more. And don’t forget this: replacing your home’s heating and cooling system will help eliminate unhealthy indoor air quality problems that you may not be aware of.
