Learn How to Finance Your New HVAC System
January 20, 2015
Because there's so much to gain with a new HVAC system, financing programs exist, so you can pay for your purchase over time. It often makes more sense to finance your purchase than it does to save up for the replacement cost. After all, a more efficient system starts saving you money immediately in lower conditioning costs.
The amount you save on your energy bill monthly will help offset the cost of the system and possibly the cost of financing it. These financing avenues may be available when you need to upgrade your current system:
The HVAC contractor
Many contractors are licensed dealers for HVAC manufacturers, like Lennox, that offer financing programs. You can ask your contractor if these kinds of financing packages are available. Lozier has financing available with approved credit.
Your mortgage company
You may qualify for a home improvement loan to finance this purchase, depending on the amount of equity you have in your home. In most cases, financing a new HVAC system through the mortgage holder may result in a lower interest rate than from a bank, and you may even be able to deduct that interest from your taxes after checking with your accountant or tax adviser.
Your bank may fund such a purchase, especially if you have a positive history with them. You'll have to talk to a loan officer to find loan availability and requirements.
FHA PowerSaver program. Homeowners who want to make home energy efficiency home improvements can take advantage of the FHA PowerSaver program. Since your HVAC system uses the most energy out of all the appliances in your home, it may be worth pursuing this avenue to find a loan at favorable rates. This may cover the purchase and installation costs as long as the equipment meets Energy Star guidelines, like a high efficiency furnace.
