A Smart Way To Keep Your Cool. Plan Ahead.

Everything working together to create your whole-home comfort (your HVAC, dishwasher, washer, and dryer) has a lifespan. A lot of people tend to wait until their system fails or gets entirely run into the ground before having it replaced. Something to consider, however, if you know the manufacturer’s lifespan on any of your products, is to plan a replacement in advance.

Everything working together to create your whole-home comfort (your HVAC, dishwasher, washer, and dryer) has a lifespan. A lot of people tend to wait until their system fails or gets entirely run into the ground before having it replaced. Something to consider, however, if you know the manufacturer’s lifespan on any of your products, is to plan a replacement in advance. This planning can help you in the long run by allowing you to purchase a new system or have a piece of equipment serviced during a slower “shoulder season” month. This means you can take advantage of working with your service partner when their phone isn’t ringing off the hook with summertime AC repairs and HVAC installations! For example, buy a new air conditioner in the winter and catch a sale or manufacturer’s rebate. Or, you can find a finance option and enjoy the savings of your new energy-smart features immediately.

In addition to planning ahead, financing a new system is a smart way to buy the right equipment combinations (based on a load analysis) to suit your home and your family’s needs. The heart at the center of your home is your heating and cooling system. Not only is this system responsible for creating your homes comfy and healthy environment, but also accounts for nearly 50 percent of your monthly utility costs. Consider every dollar you spend on an HVAC system. Here’s where the savings count: When it’s time to upgrade an old or ill-equipped unit to a new high-efficiency model, you’ll instantly start seeing savings on your utility costs. And sure, while you could spend the extra money you save in utilities, you could also take that cash and apply it towards your monthly payment.

With a streamlined application process, a variety of credit levels considered, and convenient monthly payments, W.E. Brown’s financing offerings are designed to fit your lifestyle. When it’s time, ask us about our financing options—with approved credit you get immediate purchasing power. Purchase a new, efficient HVAC system and pay over time with our financing options. We also offer financing for our other services which is comforting to know when you are facing an unexpected problem with your plumbing, electrical, or HVAC.

Ensure maximum efficiency.

Whether your HVAC system is new or old, servicing your heating and cooling systems by cleaning or changing your air filters will keep you comfortable and extend the life of the unit. By performing regular maintenance, you can maximize the life cycles of your heating or cooling units and guard against many common equipment failures. Preventive maintenance inspections conducted on a regular basis can uncover leaks, rust, rot, soot, frayed wires, and corroded electrical contacts that the naked eye may not notice. You should have maintenance done on your system regularly to ensure maximum efficiency and prevent other problems. We offer a 12-month Service Partner Plan designed to help you keep all of your systems performing at peak efficiency. Among other benefits, our Service Partner Plan members receive priority service, no after-hour fees, two high-performance service checks each year to ensure that heating and cooling systems are ready to go—a valuable service to have as the seasons change in central Virginia!

Create a world of comfort at home,
Willie
