We recognize that once the cooler weather hits, you don’t want to be considering furnace installation. 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 Thedford customers face if their furnace stops working.
In order to give your furnace the longest, most efficient life, Taylor's Heating & Air Conditioning 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 the time comes during the Thedford winter? Don’t panic! Our qualified technicians will be here to take care of you, putting your family’s comfort as our top priority.
What factors will help you determine if it’s time for a replacement furnace? First, consider the age of your furnace. If it’s 15 to 20 years old, it’s possibly 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, check your utility bills. If they seem higher this season over previous years, your furnace may be working harder than it should. Furnaces lose efficiency over time. When this happens, you’ll definitely see an impact on your utility bills.
Another indication that it may be time to replace your furnace is if you’ve had to schedule several repairs. Further repairs may not be the most cost-effective way to go. It may 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’re unsure if it’s time for a new furnace installation, just call Taylor's Heating & Air Conditioning at 519-296-4437 and we’ll be happy to take a look and go over all of your options—whether that includes a replacement furnace or furnace repair. You can even schedule an appointment with us online if that’s easier. We are here to help you stay warm in your home during the Thedford winter.
