How To Get An Upgrade And Save Money
Usually the words upgrade and save don’t go hand in hand but when it comes to improving your energy efficiency, they do. Purchasing a new heating system is a large financial commitment, but when heating costs make up a significant per cent of monthly costs, saving money each month can add up quickly.
In Alberta, power is deregulated, which means you have the option to choose who you get your electricity or natural gas from. You also have the choice between the two fuel types for your residence. If you are considering a conversion, your local natural gas provider can determine whether service is available to your home. If considering a conversion it is important to examine the following points:
- How long do I plan to spend in this home? If it is less than five years it may not make sense to invest the money in a costly conversion.
- Do I have existing duct work? If not, the conversion may be much more involved and pricey.
- How do the rates compare? How much can you save by going with a natural gas furnace versus electrical heat. How long will it take to recoup the costs of conversion?
- Do you qualify for a rebate? The provincial government is rolling out a new set of energy rebates in spring 2017. Find out what and how much you can qualify for.
- Is it peak season? Buying off season can save you money. It’s best to buy in early fall, mid winter or early spring if you can.
