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 Rockford customers face if the furnace isn’t working functioning properly.
To help make sure your furnace is running properly and efficiently, Temperature Doctors Heating & Cooling, Inc advises regular 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 Rockford winter? There’s no need to be concerned! Our professionals 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, think about 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, check your utility bills. If they seem more costly this season over previous years, your furnace may be working harder than it should. Furnaces lose efficiency after awhile. When this happens, you’ll see the evidence on your heating 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 might 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.
