Great Opportunity to Replace old Heating and Cooling Systems in Michigan!

Thursday, August 12, 2010

My house is a little over 20 years old and my cooling system just hasn’t been up to snuff this year so I called a heating and cooling contractor to get it checked out. They told me my equipment would probably last a couple more years but was not nearly as efficient as the new stuff they’re making today. Given the state of the economy, and my own personal finances my first thought was to just let it go until I could afford it. Then the HVAC contractor mentioned some great incentives that are available this year:

1) The manufacturer (Carrier - ) was offering a $1,000 rebate on certain high efficiency furnaces and air conditioning systems
2) The IRS has a tax credit of up to $1,500 ( ) for the purchase of certain high efficiency furnaces and air conditioning systems

3) The State of Michigan has a rebate incentive of up to $650 )( the purchase of a new high efficiency furnace with a variable speed blower system

All told, I could save $3,150 by installing a new system this year. Wow!

We decided to go ahead and have the whole new system installed and all of the credits and rebates paid for nearly ½ of the total cost – incredible! The contractor we used – Sutton and Sons (248) 673-2224 – did a great job. They showed up on schedule, got the job done on time, cleaned up the mess, took the old equipment with them and showed us how the new system works. My house actually gets cold on a 90 degree day now and the system is so quiet you don’t even know its running. Because we installed a 95% efficient unit with a variable speed blower we should also see a difference in our utility bills. I couldn’t be any happier.

If you, or anyone you know has an older HVAC system in the home they own, or if they just bought a new house that needs a new system, there has never been a better time to upgrade. Most of these credits expire at the end of the year so get busy!
