Expecting a tax refund? Before you spend those extra dollars from Uncle Sam on a vacation or other one-time purchase, why not consider turning your refund into additional savings? Investing in a new heating and A/C system can provide benefits that will last for many years to come, including energy savings as well as peace of mind.
Still on the fence? Here are a few additional reasons you should consider using your tax dollars to replace that old energy-guzzling, unreliable system and keep the savings coming, year after year.
The heating and A/C systems of yesterday weren’t designed with energy efficiency in mind. In fact, the U.S. Department of Energy recommends replacing any system that is 15 years or older with a newer, more energy-efficient system. The less energy your newer system consumes, the lower your heating and cooling bills will be. Furthermore, the average savings generated by investing in a new system will typically make up for the cost of the system within the first two years.
In addition to the money you’ll be saving month after month on your utility bills, there are also a number of energy-efficient incentives for replacing older HVAC systems with newer, environmentally-friendly, cost-saving systems. The Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency (DSIRE) provides a detailed list of options by state. Massachusetts alone boasts nearly 100 different incentives and policies. These can make funding your energy-efficient heating and A/C system easier than ever.
Dealing with a broken heating or A/C system is a pain in the you-know-what. Dealing with a system failure in the dead of a New England winter is even worse. Not only do you have to worry about whether or not you have a backup heating or cooling plan and how to prevent your pipes from freezing, but you’ll have to pay to have the system fixed which can cost big bucks, especially if it’s an emergency call. Investing your tax refund into a new system will provide you with peace of mind and keep your home comfortable for years to come.
Increased Home Value
Thinking about selling your home sometime in the near future? Replacing an old, clunky and outdated heating and A/C system with an energy efficient one is a small change that can produce a much larger return by making your home more marketable.
