The only thing worse than a broken furnace is a furnace that breaks down when it’s brutally cold outside. If this has happened to you, you’re faced with a choice: replace the furnace now, or wait a few weeks?
Waiting and replacing your furnace after winter ends might be your best option for saving money. Furnace dealers are often very busy during early and mid-winter. Since most people immediately replace their furnace if it can’t be repaired, dealers are extremely busy trying to meet the demand. It’s a seller’s market, and prices for installation are at their highest.
Furnace dealers drop their installation prices once spring sets in because there simply isn’t the demand. A few weeks can make a huge difference in cost in the HVAC installation business.
If you’re able to wait, you can use the time to investigate your options for replacing the furnace. Comparing costs and features of different units is not something you want to rush if you want to be happy with your purchase for years to come. In particular, finding an energy-efficient furnace that will help reduce your utility bills will add to the savings you’re already getting by waiting.
