The main thing preventing a lot of homeowners from purchasing new heating and air conditioning equipment is the cost. But a new air conditioner or heater can significantly reduce your energy usage, helping conserve natural resources and lower your monthly bills. In fact, when you get new system financing through the HERO program, your average monthly energy bills combined with low monthly system payments may actually turn out to be lower than your bills were before!
How the HERO Program Helps You
HERO (Home Energy Renovation Opportunity) is a program available to California residents, but only through select heating and air conditioning contractors in their service areas. This breaks down the cost of a new heating or AC system into affordable payments, payable with your property taxes and transferable to future buyers. Payment plans may be available for 5-20 year periods.
You’ll get a new system that lowers your monthly bills and probably keeps you more comfortable than your existing worn-down system. Newer air conditioners with SEERs (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratios) of over 14.5 may use 20-50% less energy than your decades-old system, without any sacrifice to your comfort.
Be Sure You Call a Qualified Contractor
Remember, not every heating and air conditioning contractor qualifies to help you get affordable heating and AC through the HERO program. A technician must apply and meet certain qualifications and be registered through the program in order to get you these affordable financing options (and you’ll have to apply to qualify as well).
Either way, you always want a qualified contractor working on your heating and air conditioning systems because a system that is not properly installed or serviced may break down prematurely or cost more to run.
