We know that winter isn’t the preferred season for furnace installation. We also know that installing a new furnace in the winter is a lot better than the discomfort and potential home damages our Lawrence customers face if the furnace isn’t working functioning properly.
To help make sure your furnace is running properly and efficiently, Scott Temperature suggests routine maintenance. Despite providing your heating system with lots of 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 Lawrence winter? Don’t panic! 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, consider how old your furnace is. If it’s 15 to 20 years old, it’s possibly 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, take a look at your energy bills. If they seem more costly this season over previous years, your furnace may be having a hard time keeping up. Furnaces lose efficiency after awhile. When this happens, you’ll notice a change in your heating costs.
Another indication that it may be time to replace your furnace is if you’ve had it repaired a number of times. Further repairs may not be the most cost-effective 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.
If you’re unsure if it’s time for a new furnace installation, just call Scott Temperature at 785-269-0465 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.
