Federal Energy Savings Tax Credits and Utility Company Rebates
Many old Arlington, TX furnaces are not energy efficient. They were designed when barrels of oil were only a few dollars and nobody was worried about kicking the dependence on fossil fuels. These furnaces are notorious for wasting energy. To encourage homeowners to upgrade to more energy efficient units, the government if offering tax credits and local utility companies are providing people with rebates. While the rebates will not be enough to pay for the new unit, they are enough to bring the price down substantially.
Should You Repair or Replace an Old Furnace?
This is a hard decision to make, one that the furnace repair professionals in Arlington, TX can assist you with. In some cases, it’s an easy choice. When the furnace is more than twenty years old and likely to die completely at any time, most professionals will recommend replacing it. However, if the furnace is not that old and is not a terrible energy hog then it might be worth repairing. Consider the cost of the repair compared to the cost of a new furnace. Take into account the available rebates and tax credits when doing this comparison.
