How to Get the Best Deal While Selling Your Old Furnace

Are you planning to buy a new furnace? Would you like to get the best deal while selling your old furnace?

Getting a good deal while selling your old furnace results in the availability of a bigger budget for your new one. This will determine how warm and comfortable you are and the impact your furnace will have on resources and the environment.

So here are some tips on how to get the best deal while selling your old furnace...

1. Get it serviced:

If you want to get the best bids for your furnace, you need to ensure that it is performing at its best when potential buyers come to see it. So get a good HVAC repairman to service it. Get them to clean it and fix any niggles they come across. If they find some big repairs that need to be fixed, get them to work on it. You don’t want an angry customer turning up at your door complaining about your furnace. If you don’t want to spend money on the repair, then make sure you tell the buyer about this problem and that they need to fix it. But it is always better to fix and then sell it as not fixing it will result in low priced bids.

2. Get an estimate:

Ask the HVAC repairman who is servicing your furnace to observe it closely and give you an estimate on how much it is worth. These people work on HVAC units day in and day out so they will know how much an HVAC unit should cost. Some of them might be interested in buying it themselves. They might also be able to link you up with interested buyers.

3. Getting the bids:

Asking HVAC repairmen can get you a few bids, but you could also implement several other methods. The more methods you use the more bids you will receive which will help you get the best deal. So create flyers, list your furnace on websites that let you list used products and inform everyone you know that you are selling your furnace (this will drive up the word of mouth).

You can weigh up the bids and get the best deal for your old furnace.
