3 Tips Budgeting for Your Next AC

How much money would you be able to spend on a cooling system right now? Do you have a ballpark or an exact amount in your savings when you start planning this project? If these questions sound like a lot, or if you’re starting to get overwhelmed, then don’t worry. We’re here to help. A lot of homeowners are just starting to entertain the idea of a new air conditioning system or a heat pump.

The important thing to remember is that your air conditioner installation, or repair work, or pretty much anything that involves your AC is going to cost money. These systems run on electricity, and as you know from your devices and appliances, electricity costs are still on the rise. The important thing we’re going to discuss today is AC financing in Sarasota, FL.

Let’s talk about 3 great ways to prepare for your next AC financing project.

1. Plan Your Budget Ahead of Time

Don’t you hate going to the store for some new power tool or piece of equipment, only to find that it costs twice as much as you thought it would? For something that’s extremely expensive, there’s really not much room for error.

We love working with homeowners that are cut and dry about their budgets. These days, all of the purchasing can be done on the phone. You can call us, tell us about your priorities and the budget you have in mind. We’re not interested in shaming you if you can’t afford the newest and greatest system.

Our team is going to find the right air conditioner for your home, and even if you can’t fully afford it, we can find the right financing plan for you and your family.

2. Find Tax Credits, Rebates, and Promotions

Even if you’re struggling to find ways to pay for an air conditioning system, there are amazing ways to get money back!

Tax credits are great incentives for high efficiency air conditioners, that will give you a big bonus on your tax return if you decide to purchase a system that meets certain federal or state requirements.

Rebates are ways to save money from a manufacturer when you purchase one of their newere systems.

Our team also runs regular promotions for homeowners that need new air conditioning systems. Just give us a call to learn more!

3. Prioritize Your Values

When deciding to finance an air conditioning system, it’s important to prioritize your values. What exactly are you paying all of this money for?

For instance, if you’re buying an air conditioner because everyone else in the neighborhood has one, then your priorities might be very different from someone else’s. Some homeowners just want to buy an air conditioner that works without costing too much money, and this value will help drive them to the right system that makes them happy.

Gather the family together and make a list of your priorities when it comes to comfort. Do you want to pay less money? Do you want a system that’s convenient and cool? Are you an environmentally-conscious family and you want to reduce your carbon footprint? Then use these values to determine the best system for you!
