Our experts at realize that winter may not be the ideal time to get a new furnace. But you can likely concur that installing a new furnace in the winter is a lot better than the discomfort and potential home damages our Genoa customers face if their furnace stops working.
To help make sure your furnace is running properly and efficiently, Assured Appliance and Heating & Air recommends regular maintenance. Despite providing your heating system with lots of attention, a furnace will reach a certain age and it won’t be cost-effective to perform repairs. So, what happens if the time comes during the Genoa winter? Don’t panic! Our professionals will be here to take care of you, and make sure your family’s home comfort is met.
How will you know if you’re in need of a new furnace installation? First, think about how long you have had your current system. If it’s 15 to 20 years old, it’s probably nearing the end of its life span. Many times, it doesn’t make sense to put money into repairing a furnace that’s so old.
Next, review your energy costs. If they seem greater this season over previous years, your furnace may be struggling. Furnaces lose efficiency as they get older. When this happens, you’ll see the evidence on your heating bills.
Another sign that it may be time to replace your furnace is if you’ve had it repaired a number of times. Further repairs may not be the best way to go. It might be in your best interest to replace your furnace with a new, more energy-efficient model. Putting your money towards a newer model rather than another repair could help you save money over the long term.
