Upgrading Your HVAC System: Benefits of the New HVAC Program

We think getting an HVAC upgrade is one of the best moves you can make for the health of your home and family. Here are ten reasons to upgrade your HVAC.

1. Immediate and Long-Term Savings

As a Frontdoor Unlimited member, you could save thousands* off national retail pricing on HVAC replacement costs, with third-party financing options available.

With the New HVAC Program, members are eligible for:

  • A free in-home assessment of your current system.
  • Personalized equipment recommendations on name brand systems.
  • A quote on a new unit from an experienced Pro.

On top of the immediate savings you’ll get when you take advantage of the New HVAC Program, replacing your HVAC system results in long-term cost savings too. 

With a new, more efficient HVAC system, your monthly energy bills go down. But there's more to it. These systems are built to last longer and run more reliably, which means less money spent on repairs and maintenance down the line. You’re setting your future self up for fewer emergency expenses.

2. Improved Energy Efficiency

One of the best reasons to upgrade is that HVAC systems have significantly improved in energy efficiency in recent years. Modern HVAC systems are designed with cutting-edge technology that not only boosts performance but also ensures they consume less energy.

Here’s how an HVAC upgrade can lead to a more energy-efficient home:

  • Energy-efficient systems consume less power: With a modern system, you'll notice a decrease in your energy bills, reflecting the unit's ability to maintain climate control more effectively and efficiently.
  • Smart thermostats optimize temperature control: Smart thermostats learn your preferences and schedule, adjusting the temperature automatically for optimal comfort and efficiency.

3. Lower Utility Bills

A happy result of increased energy efficiency is an immediate and noticeable reduction in your monthly utility bills.

A modern, upgraded HVAC system is designed to minimize waste and maximize output, so maintaining a comfortable home no longer comes with a hefty price tag. These newer systems offer more consistent performance compared to older units. This consistency means not only cost-savings but also more predictable energy costs month-to-month, which is ideal for keeping a handle on your household budget.

4. Better Resale Prospects

In today's housing market, buyers are savvier and more aware of the benefits of energy-efficient homes. A modern HVAC system is a standout feature that can significantly increase the attractiveness of your property because of those lower utility bills and a smaller carbon footprint. Buyers are often willing to pay a premium for homes that offer the comfort, efficiency and reliability of a new HVAC system, knowing that it will save them costs in the long run.

Beyond the numbers, a modern HVAC system offers potential buyers the promise of long-term comfort and security. It's a reassuring sign that the home has been well-maintained and updated with the future in mind. Plus, making back your HVAC replacement cost when you sell makes the prospect even sweeter.

5. Operational Efficiency

Upgrading your HVAC system will also significantly enhance the operational efficiency of your home’s climate control. Maybe your air conditioning has started freezing up in the summer or your home takes a long time to heat. These are both red flags that your HVAC is losing its operational efficiency.

With an HVAC upgrade, you can expect:

  • Quiet and smooth operation: Older systems can be quite noisy and disruptive, but newer models are much quieter.
  • Zoning options for precision control: Today’s HVAC systems offer sophisticated zoning options that allow for precise temperature control in different areas of your home.
  • Enhanced airflow for consistent comfort: Better airflow means better circulation and filtering in your home.

The personalization that comes with upgrading to a more operationally efficient HVAC system can truly transform your living environment, upping your comfort levels and giving you precise control over your temp.

6. Tax Incentives

An often-overlooked advantage of upgrading your HVAC system is the potential to benefit from government tax incentives for energy-efficient home improvements. These incentives are part of broader initiatives to encourage homeowners to embrace sustainable practices.

Government programs offer rebates and tax credits specifically for these types of upgrades, which can significantly reduce the initial financial burden. The installation of an energy-efficient HVAC system, while initially a considerable investment, becomes much more accessible and affordable with supplemental incentives like these.

Of course, specifics will vary depending on your location and the type of system you install.

7. Environmentally Friendly

We already know newer, energy-efficient HVAC systems consume less power, which means less energy is being pulled from the grid. This reduction in energy usage directly translates to a lower carbon footprint for your home.

Then there's the matter of refrigerants. Older HVAC systems often use refrigerants that are harsh on the environment. Thankfully, newer HVAC models use eco-friendly refrigerants that have a much lower impact on global warming. Bonus: they’re also cheaper to source.

8. Access to New Technologies & Features

Depending on what system you choose, an HVAC upgrade can seriously step up your home technology game.

Smart thermostats are a game-changer. They allow you to control your home's temperature and zoning with your smartphone. So, if you're coming home earlier than expected, you can adjust the temperature so it's just right when you walk through the door.

These perks extend to your health, too. Newer HVAC systems often come with improved air filters, keeping the air in your home cleaner. It's a simple upgrade that can have a big impact on the quality of air you and your family breathe.

Which leads us to our next reason…

9. Better Indoor Air Quality

One of the most underrated benefits of an HVAC upgrade, which has a significant impact on our daily lives, is the improvement in indoor air quality.

An upgraded system does wonders for the air we breathe inside our homes. It comes equipped with advanced filtration technologies that effectively capture dust, pollen, and other airborne irritants. This cleaner air can make a world of difference, especially if you or your family members have allergies or asthma.

These modern systems are also useful for maintaining optimal humidity levels. Too much humidity can lead to mold and mildew growth, while too little can cause dry skin and respiratory discomfort. A new HVAC system ensures that the air in your home is clean and comfortably balanced.

10. Reduced Repairs and Maintenance Needs

An upgraded HVAC system also means fewer calls for repair service and more peace of mind for you. It's about having a system you can rely on, day in and day out, without the constant worry of something going wrong.

Also, the maintenance routine for newer systems tends to be simpler and less frequent. With advanced designs and better-quality parts, these systems are made to last and perform efficiently for longer periods. This translates to less time spent on upkeep, freeing you up to focus on other aspects of home life.
