Our experts at realize that winter may not be the ideal time to get a new furnace. 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 Wyandotte customers face if they have a breakdown.
To provide your furnace with a long, efficient life span, Gee & Missler Heating & Air Conditioning 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 you find yourself in need of a new furance during the Wyandotte winter? Don’t worry! Our experts will be here to take care of you, and make sure your family’s home comfort is met.
How can you determine if you are ready for a new furnace? First, review the age of your furnace. 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 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 having a hard time keeping up. Furnaces lose efficiency after awhile. When this happens, you’ll notice a change in your heating costs.
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 may 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.
