Having a financing plan that fits your budget to replace your HVAC or large plumbing projects can be to your advantage. Financing your air conditioner gives you the opportunity to make a large purchase that fits your situation, rather than disrupting your current cash flow or having to settle for a system that might cost less but will not suit your long-term needs. Depending on your credit situation, you can also save hundreds of dollars with a low or 0% interest rate and have extended payment options with no pre-payment penalties.
- Can You Qualify for AC Financing with Bad Credit?
In general, most borrowers need good to average credit when it comes to setting up financing for an air conditioner or furnace system. We know that many people have faced difficult circumstances and that their credit score may have been impacted negatively but that doesn’t necessarily mean that they should be able to make large necessary purchases for their homes. We have financing partners that have different qualifications per situation, and one of our lenders has a second-chance program.

- Are There Any Government Grants for Air Conditioning Units?
Yes, there are several ways to gain financial assistance, with the newest government grants and rebates for upgraded systems. There are various government grants for replacing HVAC systems such as their newest initiative (IRA) The Inflation Reduction Act. Learn about the impacts the Inflation Reduction Act will have on the Department of Energy’s Loan Programs Office at www.energy.gov. Not only this but each state also has its own specific state incentives to help cover the cost of air cooling systems for homes. Arizona Clean Energy has grants available that can help with assistance through (LIHEAP) The Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program. LIHEAP Map State and Territory Contact Listing NOTE: To inquire about LIHEAP assistance, the general public should use the public inquiry telephone number if available for their State or Territory. That number may provide the public with information about the program much quicker than the agency number. There are also programs available at the federal level that can help.

Common Furnace Financing Questions
Not only is an air conditioner a major purchase for your home, so is buying a new furnace. Over time, the wear and tear on a furnace will eventually lead to it needing to be replaced. Hopefully, this comes at a time when you are prepared, but occasionally a furnace will break down and need replacing without warning. Being able to finance the cost of your furnace replacement is very helpful in those moments when unexpected costs occur. Many of the questions answered above about air conditioning financing also apply to furnace purchases such as the information about our lending partners here at Day & Night, or whether borrowing to pay for your furnace is a good idea. Below we’ve outlined some more of the most common questions we get asked when people are looking into financing a new furnace for their home.
What Credit Score is Needed to Finance a Furnace?
Similar to air conditioning financing, people looking to finance their furnace purchase need to have a good to average credit score, typically above 650, when it comes to setting up financing for a new furnace system. That is not to say that it is impossible to get financing for a furnace with a bad or lower credit score. Here at Day & Night, we work with a number of different financing partners that have different qualifications per situation, and one of our lenders has a second-chance program.

Do People Finance Furnaces?
We get asked often ‘Is it common for people to finance their new furnace or to pay up front?’ The average cost to install a new furnace in your home can be between $2,000 and $8,000. This is a significant cost so many homeowners choose to finance their new furnace for their home rather than paying cash up front. Not sure where to start with financing? Here’s how Day & Night can help. Like any good HVAC company, we are partnered with a number of reputable lenders who will help set up the financing for your new furnace offering competitive rates and payment plans.

The last thing you want is to be stuck in the cold which is why we recommend installing an energy efficient furnace, or in some cases, a heat pump in your Phoenix home.
