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 sounds quite a bit better than the discomfort and potential home damages our Mechanicsburg customers face if they have a breakdown.
To help make sure your furnace is running properly and efficiently, H & H Service Company 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 the time comes during the Mechanicsburg winter? Don’t worry! Our experts will be here to take care of you, putting your family’s comfort as our top priority.
What factors will help you determine if it’s time for a replacement furnace? 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. 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 higher this season over previous years, your furnace may be struggling. Furnaces lose efficiency after awhile. When this happens, you’ll see the evidence on your heating bills.
Another indication that it may be time to replace your furnace is if you’ve had to schedule several 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 have questions on whether it’s time to replace your furnace, just call H & H Service Company at 717-220-4502 and our team will be happy to take a look and review all of your options—whether that includes a replacement furnace or furnace repair.
