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 Derby customers face if their furnace stops working.
In order to give your furnace the longest, most efficient life, Giordanos Heating and Air Conditioning suggests routine maintenance. But, even with the best care, a furnace will reach a certain age and won’t be worth repairing. So, what happens if your furnace reaches this time during the Derby winter? Don’t panic! Our qualified technicians 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, think about 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 put money into repairing a furnace that’s so old.
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 see the evidence on your heating 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 most cost-effective way to go. It could be in your best interest to replace your furnace with a new, more energy-efficient model. Investing in a newer model will likely save you money in the long run.
