We know that winter isn’t the preferred season for furnace installation. But you can likely concur that installing a new furnace in the winter will provide a better outcome than the discomfort and potential home damages our Franklin & South Indy customers face if the furnace isn’t working functioning properly.
To help make sure your furnace is running properly and efficiently, Winters Heating and Cooling advises routine 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 you find yourself in need of a new furance during the Franklin & South Indy winter? Don’t panic! Our experts 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, review 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. In most cases, it doesn’t make sense to have the extra expenses to perform repairs.
Next, review your energy costs. If they seem higher this season over previous years, your furnace may be struggling. Furnaces lose efficiency as they get older. When this happens, you’ll definitely see an impact on your utility bills.
Another signal that it may be time to replace your furnace is if you’ve had to schedule several repairs. Further repairs may not be the ideal way to go. It might be in your best interest to replace your furnace with a new, more energy-efficient model. Focusing your money on a new furnace instead of repairs could end up costing you less in the end.
If you have questions on whether it’s time to replace your furnace, just call Winters Heating and Cooling at 317-406-5783 and our team will be happy to take a look and review all of your options—whether that includes a replacement furnace or furnace repair. You can even arrange an appointment with us online if that’s more convenient. We are here to ensure you stay nice and cozy in your home during the Franklin & South Indy winter.
