Our experts at realize that winter may not be the ideal time to get a new furnace. But you can likely concur that installing a new furnace in the winter sounds quite a bit better than the discomfort and potential home damages our West Jefferson customers face if the furnace isn’t working functioning properly.
In order to give your furnace the longest, most efficient life, West Jefferson Plumbing and Heating, Inc. advises annual preventive maintenance. Even if you give your furnace optimal attention, a furnace will reach a certain age and you’ll be spending more money on repairs than you should. So, what happens if the time comes during the West Jefferson winter? Don’t worry! Our experts will be here to take care of you, making your home comfort our focus.
How will you know if you’re in need of a new furnace installation? First, consider how old your furnace is. If it’s 15 to 20 years old, it’s probably nearing the end of its life span. Many times, 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 over time. 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 best way to go. It might 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.
