Don't Rely on Luck to Save Your HVAC System This Spring

Citywide parades and an abundance of green apparel lining the shelves of stores can only mean one thing: St. Patrick’s Day is upon us. Whether or not you are part of the 31-plus million Americans claiming Irish heritage, March 17 is a holiday symbolized by all things lucky — four-leaf clovers, rainbows, and horseshoes.

Despite what the upcoming holiday might say about luck, there are some things in life are better not left up to chance. Assuming that your home’s HVAC system is well-prepared for the warmer weather ahead is one of them.

Working with a contractor approved through the National Energy Improvement Fund (NEIF) is not only the best way to ensure that your home is at peak comfort and efficiency for this spring and beyond, but to do so affordably.


Don’t Wait to Upgrade

 When considering the livelihood of your home’s HVAC system, try using the following analogy: Would you drive a car from the 1990s and expect it to perform at peak safety and receive great gas mileage?

Of course not!

The same can apply at home. While you might be tempted to hold off as long as possible or to wait until equipment breaks, ENERGY STAR encourages upgrading heating and cooling systems after 10 years. As your home’s overall efficiency increases, your monthly energy costs can also decrease by up to 20%. 

Investing in higher efficiency equipment doesn’t have to be intimidating when financing through NEIF. NEIF offers fixed, low monthly payment financing that supports the transition to a much healthier, more comfortable, and energy-efficient home.

But why now — why consider upgrading this spring? 

Cleaning isn’t the only thing that should top your household to-do list this season. HVAC contractors tend to be the busiest in the summer and winter months, so whether you’re looking to schedule an annual servicing appointment, arrange for equipment repair, or ultimately upgrade and install a new system, you might want to consider doing so before the warm weather strikes. 

NEIF’s network of Approved Contractors are highly qualified and always ready to come up with a solution that works best for you and your home’s needs. Don’t rely on luck this spring; find an NEIF-Approved Contractor to work with today!
