Spring Is Replacement Season so contact Thomson Industries today for your HVAC Replacement Needs!

If you’re considering the purchase of a new home heating and cooling system, there’s no time like the present. Spring is one of the best times to consider replacement for a number of reasons.



Spring temperatures tend to be mild. So if you have to go without heating or cooling for a whole day while your new system is being installed, it’s going to be a lot more comfortable for you and your family than if you wait until the middle of summer or winter.



Spring is typically one of the periods when manufacturers offer special incentives on complete new systems. So you can often save money by buying your system in spring as opposed to other times of the year. Check our  Promotions Page to see what kind of specials and savings are available in your area.


How to know if replacement is right

The question of repair versus replacement is an ongoing struggle for homeowners. Every time your current system breaks down, you have to decide whether to patch it and hope for another year, or take the plunge and replace it with a new system. There are three main factors to consider in the repair/replace dilemma.



Every year, home heating and cooling equipment gets more efficient. Features like variable-capacity compressors allow modern systems to use a lot less energy without sacrificing comfort. By purchasing a high-efficiency system now, you can pay less in energy costs every month.


Repair costs

The system breaks, you pay to fix it. It breaks again, you pay another repair bill. At some point, your old system is going to reach a point where replacement makes more sense than constant repair bills. When you consider that today’s high-efficiency systems can often qualify for tax incentives and utility rebates, the cost of replacement suddenly doesn’t seem so daunting.


The equipment itself

Air conditioners and heat pumps typically have a useful life of about 10-12 years, while furnaces typically last between 15 and 20 years. If your system components are older than this, you’re living on borrowed time. You’re also missing out on modern features that can enhance your comfort and convenience.

Now, features like remote operation via smartphone are fairly commonplace. And new features are constantly being developed to make your home more perfect than ever, including air quality monitoring and proactive energy savings that works with your smartphone’s GPS. A new system will give you all the convenience, comfort and savings that these features provide.


Financing can help you get greater efficiency and comfort


If you’re going to make the move to replace your system, be sure to consider the use of our financing. When you have the ability to finance a substantial purchase like a home comfort system, you can get more system. And that can mean real advantages.


Long-term savings

The more you spend on high-efficiency air conditioners, air handlers, heat pumps or furnaces, the more money you can save over time. High-efficiency equipment can offer substantial savings every month in utility costs, sometimes reducing your bill by up to half when compared to standard-efficiency equipment. And while the upfront costs may be more, financing can spread the expense out to make it more manageable. 


More features

By enabling you to get more system that you originally thought, financing can put some innovative capabilities in reach. For example, by upgrading to a communicating system, you can gain features such as proactive system monitoring, greater control over temperature and humidity and a thermostat that saves energy by adapting system use to your schedule in real time.


Better system operation

When you finance, it becomes easier to purchase an entire system, rather than simply replacing a single component piecemeal. And complete replacement is actually a smarter decision. When you buy the whole system, you’re getting equipment that’s been designed to work together as a team. This “matched” system will offer greater performance, energy savings and control than a system cobbled together from different manufacturers.
