WE’VE ALL SEEN THE ADS CLAIMING YOU CAN GET A FREE FURNACE. WE KNOW YOU’RE SMART ENOUGH TO FIGURE OUT WHEN SOMETHING IS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE.
The average furnace costs $2150-5900 and the average air conditioner costs $3350-5912. What often happens with offers like “buy an air conditioner and get a free furnace” is that the air conditioner goes up in price to cover the cost of the furnace. So, you still end up paying for the furnace. You’ll also typically have to pay for the installation. The bottom line is that if you have to pay for the furnace, even if it isn’t directly, it’s not free.
Plus, you should know that the furnace you receive is not going to be the furnace you want in your home. The “free” furnace is a low-efficiency, single-stage, base model that will not keep you as comfortable as you could be with the right furnace. In fact, the HVAC dealer trying to sell it to you will usually offer to “upgrade” you to the furnace you really want… at a price that is actually about the cost of the furnace.
If you choose the free furnace, it also means you will end up paying more on your energy bill, since the less expensive models aren’t the most energy-efficient, environmentally-friendly products. Over the life of this one “free” unit, you could end up spending hundreds or thousands more than you would have with purchasing a proper system.
That’s why you should always get three bids. With one bid from Just Right you can be sure you are getting the most comfortable solution at the right price.
