We recognize that once the cooler weather hits, you don’t want to be considering furnace installation. However, you can agree that installing a new furnace in the winter will provide a better outcome than the discomfort and potential home damages our New Castle customers face if the furnace isn’t working functioning properly.
In order to give your furnace the longest, most efficient life, Central Heating & Plumbing advises regular maintenance. Even if you give your furnace optimal attention, a furnace will reach a certain age and won’t be worth repairing. So, what happens if you find yourself in need of a new furance during the New Castle winter? There’s no need to be concerned! Our experts will be here to take care of you, putting your family’s comfort as our top priority.
How will you know if you’re in need of a new furnace installation? First, review the age of your furnace. 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 having a hard time keeping up. Furnaces lose efficiency as they get older. 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 best way to go. It could 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.
If you have questions on whether it’s time to replace your furnace, just call Central Heating & Plumbing at 724-401-1843 and our team will 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 book an appointment with us online if that’s more convenient. We are here to help you stay warm in your home during the New Castle winter.
