We recognize that once the cooler weather hits, you don’t want to be considering furnace installation. But you can likely concur that installing a new furnace in the winter is a lot better than the discomfort and potential home damages our Hodgenville customers face if their furnace stops working.
To provide your furnace with a long, efficient life span, Phelps Heating & Cooling advises annual preventive 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 your furnace reaches this time during the Hodgenville winter? There’s no need to be concerned! 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. Many times, it doesn’t make sense to spend the additional money to repair a furnace that is older.
Next, review your energy costs. If they seem more costly this season over previous years, your furnace may be struggling. Furnaces lose efficiency after awhile. 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 ideal 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.
