No matter how tight your budget, going cheap on a new HVAC system isn’t a good idea. In fact, the money you save up front on the purchase price will likely be lost over time through higher monthly utility bills, frequent repairs, and a shorter system lifespan. Fortunately, homeowners in River Oaks, Texas, can find several ways to save money on a new HVAC system without sacrificing quality.
Federal Tax Rebates
Start your search by reviewing the current federal income tax credits for energy efficiency. Keep in mind that federal tax incentives vary from year to year as new programs are introduced and old ones expire. You can find an up-to-date list on the Energy Star website.
In addition to federal tax breaks, many state and local governments have programs to encourage energy-efficient upgrades. Type your zipcode into the search bar on www.dsireusa.org to find incentives in your state. You should also check with your utility company for rebates. Some companies offer incentives or rebates to customers who replace their old HVAC system with a more efficient one.
Once you know what kind of system you’d like to buy, compare manufacturer rebates. Most companies run promotions throughout the year to help you save on a new system. If possible, research past offers so you’ll know a good deal when you see one.
Finally, take the time to talk with your local HVAC contractor. You may find discounts that can be stacked with manufacturer rebates and local incentives. At Maxx AC, we love helping you save money on HVAC costs, so check back often to see the current specials posted on our website.
