We’re close to 2017 ending and 2018 blooming. It’s that time of the year when you’ll start to plan for next year, make resolutions, and enjoy family gatherings. With new resolutions come new plans and new budgets. Does your New Year’s resolution include an upgrade or replacement HVAC system?

If not, here are 5 reasons why it should!

Energy-efficiency: Upgrading your system to an energy-efficient one will help lower your energy bills which mean more money in your pocket! Energy-efficient machines are also great for wanting to keep your homes carbon footprint low.

Cost-breakdown: If you’re looking to get a new HVAC machines, chances are you might not have the cash upfront to pay for the machine. By adding this to your New Year’s resolution you can put a weekly or monthly budget in place to save up for the machine costs throughout the year. If you want a new system before summer, you’ll be able to budget monthly from January to July and have a great course of action for the first part of the year. This helps so you pay for the machine in cash and don’t put it on a high-interest credit card or payment plan.

Accumulating from others: When you add big purchases into your yearly goals, factoring in your costs breakdown and money received from others (for holidays and birthdays) helps to ensure you reach your goals and aren’t the only one contributing. It’s nice to let others know that they can skip actual gifts and give you a check in a card; after explaining to them that you’re pooling money for a new HVAC. Once your family is on board and happy to help you with your new purchase, you’d be surprised on who chips in.

Warranty expired: If your warranty has expired on your current machine and you’ve been replacing a lot of parts recently, it might be a good idea to purchase a new machine next year. This not only gives you the chance to stop paying for broken parts but lets you start fresh with a new machine and new warranty.

Ready to sell: Are you thinking of selling your home in 2018? If so, appliances are a huge factor in the value of a home. If your machine is broken or needs replaced chances are you won’t get as high of an appraisal as you were hoping. Before you have someone appraise your home, you may want to think about getting a new HVAC system and adding the cost of the machine into the home’s purchase price so you receive your investment back and you still get the price you were wanting for your home.
