We know that winter isn’t the preferred season for furnace installation. We also know that installing a new furnace in the winter will provide a better outcome than the discomfort and potential home damages our Plover customers face if their furnace stops working.
To provide your furnace with a long, efficient life span, Point Heating & Cooling advises 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 Plover winter? Don’t worry! Our experts 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, review 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 have the extra expenses to perform repairs.
Next, take a look at your energy 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 see the evidence on your heating bills.
Another sign that it may be time to replace your furnace is if you’ve had to schedule several repairs. Further repairs may not be the ideal way to go. It may 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.
You don’t have to figure this out on your own, just call Point Heating & Cooling at 715-504-0533 and our experts will be happy to take a look and review all of your options—whether that includes a replacement furnace or furnace repair. You can even arrange an appointment with us online if that’s easiest for you. We are here to ensure you stay warm in your home during the Plover winter.
