Purchasing a new HVAC system can be a huge home improvement expense. So, we know Georgetown homeowners keep their eyes peeled for the best deals. But a great deal doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice quality. The pros at DTC Air Conditioning & Heating can help you take advantage of HVAC rebates & federal tax credits that will make your new heating & cooling system less of a burden on your budget.
When is the best time of year to buy a new HVAC system?
People always ask us, “When is the best time to buy a new HVAC?”. And while you might think this would be a complicated question, the answer is really pretty simple: shoulder seasons.
In the HVAC world, a shoulder season is the time between the coldest and hottest months. In other words: it’s a shorter way of saying the spring and fall seasons.
Shoulder seasons are the best time to buy a new home comfort system for several reasons. The fact is that heating and cooling companies like ours are the busiest during summer and winter. In the shoulder season, we typically don’t have as many customers calling. Choosing to buy a new HVAC during the shoulder season has several advantages:
1 – Deepest discounts – because this is our slowest time of the year, we are able to offer the very best deals. The milder the weather, the deeper the discounts.
2 – Fast scheduling – here at DTC we strive to serve our customers as quickly as possible, including same day service. But scheduling a new air conditioner install in the summer can be more challenging. If you want your HVAC installed quickly, the shoulder seasons are the time to do it.
3 – Full-season efficiency – no matter what type of HVAC unit you purchase, it will run more efficiently than your current unit. You will benefit the most from that efficiency increase if your new unit is installed before the temps really start skyrocketing.
There is no doubt that shoulder season is the best time of year to install your new HVAC, especially if you’re looking to save money.
HVAC rebates and tax credits for Georgetown, TX homeowners
Manufacturer Rebates – Rebates are one of the best ways to save on a new cooling or heating unit. They are essentially cash back on your new system purchase. We partner with the top HVAC manufacturer, Carrier, to bring you high-quality heating and cooling equipment. Carrier is offering all sorts of rebates on their equipment during this shoulder season. When you choose a Carrier system for your Georgetown, Round Rock, or Cedar Park home, our team here at DTC will help you determine eligibility and apply for rebates.
Utility Rebates – Utility companies like Pedernales also sometimes offer rebates. Right now, customers that use Pedernales can get a rebate on a high-efficiency heating and cooling system. Again- that’s just cash back in your pocket. Check your utility company’s website for more information on rebates that might be available. DTC can always help you determine eligibility!
Federal Tax Credits – homeowners in Georgetown and surrounding areas can also take advantage of federal tax credits. These incentives apply to specific system types and efficiency levels, and the amount of the tax credit varies. If taxes make your head spin, don’t worry. We do this every day! Our professionals here at DTC can help you apply for the tax credit to maximize your savings.
