Most of us don’t give too much thought to our heating systems during the warmer months, especially here in Southern California. However, this is actually the perfect time to think about heating your house next winter. First, if your system is more than 15-20 years old, it is time to plan for a replacement system. There are a lot of advantages to why summer is the best time to replace your heating system. Here are the significant advantages of replacing your boiler or furnace during the warm weather:

You Will Save Money

Savings on a big investment like your home’s heating system can be substantial. Nothing is worse than your heating system biting the dust in the middle of winter, causing you to need immediate repairs. You’ll have to pay emergency repair rates much higher than a company’s standard replacement rate if you need immediate service. Another plus is that the cost of many heating units can be lower in the summer because they are not in high demand. Many manufacturers also offer additional rebates and discounts when you purchase a new heating system in the warmer months so they can move their inventory.

You Won’t Be Uncomfortable During Installation

When you decide to have a new heating system installed during the summer months, there will be no disruption to your comfort level, and you won’t lose your heat when you need it the most.

You Have Time to Consider Different Options

When you start planning for a new heating system to be installed in the summer, you have the luxury of discussing all your options with your installer. You can establish if you need a larger or smaller unit than you currently have, if it makes sense to change fuel sources for your new system, or if you should add to or change the layout of your registers when you install a new system. You can choose from a wide selection of manufacturers and equipment when you have extra time to wait for your order to arrive. All these factors can be considered thoughtfully and thoroughly when you plan and have ample time to make decisions.

If you require immediate furnace or boiler replacement during the winter, you don’t have a lot of time to consider all your options. You may get stuck purchasing certain equipment because it is in stock, and you can’t wait for an order to be shipped. You’ll have to spend money on a less-than-ideal system just because you can’t wait or don’t have the time for extra research.

It’s WAY More Convenient

When you attempt to install a new heating system in the winter months, you approach installers in the middle of their busiest time of year. You will have to deal with scheduling challenges and accept whatever openings the company has. On the other hand, heating contractors welcome new business and can be more flexible in working with your schedule during the summer. These are just some reasons why summer is the best time to replace your heating system.
