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 sounds quite a bit better than the discomfort and potential home damages our Sandpoint customers face if the furnace isn’t working functioning properly.
To help make sure your furnace is running properly and efficiently, Age Heating & Cooling suggests annual preventive maintenance. Even if you give your furnace optimal attention, a furnace will reach a certain age and it won’t be cost-effective to perform repairs. So, what happens if your furnace reaches this time during the Sandpoint winter? There’s no need to be concerned! Our professionals 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, think about the age of your furnace. If it’s 15 to 20 years old, it’s probably nearing the end of its life span. Oftentimes, it doesn’t make sense to put money into repairing a furnace that’s so old.
Next, check your utility bills. If they seem greater this season over previous years, your furnace may be struggling. Furnaces lose efficiency as they get older. When this happens, you’ll notice a change in your heating costs.
Another signal 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.
If you’re unsure if it’s time for a new furnace installation, just call Age Heating & Cooling at 208-578-4258 and our team will be happy to take a look and discuss 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 easier. We are here to ensure you stay nice and cozy in your home during the Sandpoint winter.
