We recognize that once the cooler weather hits, you don’t want to be considering furnace installation. However, you can agree that installing a new furnace in the winter sounds quite a bit better than the discomfort and potential home damages our McMurray customers face if the furnace isn’t working functioning properly.
To provide your furnace with a long, efficient life span, Kowalski Heating, Cooling & Plumbing advises regular maintenance. Despite providing your heating system with lots of attention, a furnace will reach a certain age and you’ll be spending more money on repairs than you should. So, what happens if the time comes during the McMurray winter? Don’t panic! Our professionals will be here to take care of you, and make sure your family’s home comfort is met.
What factors will help you determine if it’s time for a replacement furnace? First, think about how old your furnace is. If it’s 15 to 20 years old, it’s likely nearing the end of its life span. In most cases, it doesn’t make sense to put money into repairing a furnace that’s so old.
Next, take a look at your energy bills. If they seem higher this season over previous years, your furnace may be working harder than it should. Furnaces lose efficiency as they get older. When this happens, you’ll notice a change in your heating costs.
Another signal that it may be time to replace your furnace is if you’ve had to call for multiple repairs. 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. Investing in a newer model will likely save you money in the long run.
