We examine the cost of replacing your furnace or central air conditioner with a new high-efficiency system, and what the price of a furnace or A/C rental compares.
When it comes to upgrading your current heating and cooling system, instead of asking yourself, ‘how much is this going to cost me?’, you need to be asking yourself how much money you are wasting on sky high energy bills as a result of your outdated and inefficient system.
While a system upgrade may be the last thing on your mind, with today’s rising energy costs, you can’t afford not to invest in an energy efficient system.
Luckily, there is now a way to do it without any money down, and without the stress of repair or maintenance costs.
Sounds to good to be true? Luckily this is not only true, but it’s a new and affordable way for home and business owners to take advantage of the newest heating and cooling technology in a way that is both affordable and predictable. Let’s look at the true cost of adding a high efficiency heating or cooling system to your home.
Furnace Rental – An affordable way to heat and cool your home
A new ENERGY STAR furnace or air conditioner can easily cost $3000 – $6000 including installation in most parts of Canada. This cost must usually be paid in full immediately after installation. Our flexible and affordable rent to own program allows you to get your new system installed immediately, and pay for it on a schedule that works for you.
By choosing to rent your heating or cooling system instead of buying outright we are extending these units to many people who don’t have thousands of dollars available if their unit conks out in the middle of a snowstorm or a heat wave. Instead, you have the opportunity to have a top of the line unit installed in your home with no upfront costs or other fees and approval as long as you’re the homeowner. Installation is included and we will even take away your old unit at no cost to you. It couldn’t be any easier to start saving money on your energy bills.
So how much will it cost? A typical rental unit will cost between $65 and $80 a month. This predictable monthly fee will appear on your utility bill so it can be easily paid. But how much will a new unit save you?
And all our units come with a complementary full-coverage protection plan!
Rebates are available for qualified installations
The savings don’t end there. By choosing a high efficiency system you are able to take advantage of government rebates in many provinces. For example in Ontario you are eligible to receive up to $250 when you replace an old furnace with an energy efficient model with an Electronically Commutated Motor (ECM). Additionally, you can receive up to an additional $400 if you replace you older air conditioner with an ENERGY STAR rated unit with a SEER of 15 and an EER of 12.5. Full terms and conditions can be read here.
In British Columbia there are also financial incentives for making energy efficient changes to your home. The best way to learn about and qualify for these incentives is to book an energy assessment (a requirement for any rebates). Give us a call (1-877-785-1055), we can help!
When purchasing a new furnace, it is important to look at the AFUE rating and to purchase the highest rating you can possibly afford. Why is this so important? It’s simple. The AFUE stands for Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency and it relates to how well the heating system is able to efficiently turn fuel into energy.
In 1992, new laws were passed requiring furnaces to be more fuel efficient. Many older furnaces have an AFUE of about 65. That means for every dollar you spend heating your house, only .65 cents is being used to heat the home. The rest is literally going up in smoke. Today’s high efficiency furnaces can have an AFUE rating of up to 98. That would be an instant 33 per cent savings on your energy bill! Wouldn’t it be nice to put that money in your pocket instead?
In addition to monthly savings, by renting your heating or cooling systems you are not only getting a brand new energy efficient unit, you are also buying the piece of mind that comes from knowing that all maintenance, repair and replacement costs are included in your low monthly at no extra charge. So if your furnace stops working right after Christmas you don’t have to worry about the cost to repair or replace your unit. You simply give us a call and a licensed technician will be at your home or business with no cost to you.
In addition to avoiding the costs for repairs, you also get free yearly maintenance so that your heating or cooling system continues to work as efficiently as possible so your energy costs remain low.
