We recognize that once the cooler weather hits, you don’t want to be considering furnace installation. We also know that installing a new furnace in the winter sounds quite a bit better than the discomfort and potential home damages our Montoursville customers face if they have a breakdown.
In order to give your furnace the longest, most efficient life, Airmen HVAC Service advises routine maintenance. Despite providing your heating system with lots of attention, a furnace will reach a certain age and won’t be worth repairing. So, what happens if your furnace reaches this time during the Montoursville winter? There’s no need to be concerned! Our experts 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, consider the age of your furnace. If it’s 15 to 20 years old, it’s likely nearing the end of its life span. Oftentimes, it doesn’t make sense to spend the additional money to repair a furnace that is older.
Next, take a look at your energy bills. If they seem more costly 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 definitely see an impact on your utility bills.
Another sign 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 most cost-effective way to go. It could 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 Airmen HVAC Service at 570-322-3131 and we’ll 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 Montoursville winter.
