Our experts at realize that winter may not be the ideal time to get a new furnace. 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 Marshalltown customers face if the furnace isn’t working functioning properly.
To provide your furnace with a long, efficient life span, Kapaun & Brown Inc. suggests routine maintenance. Even if you give your furnace optimal attention, a furnace will reach a certain age and you’ll be spending more money on repairs than you should. So, what happens if the time comes during the Marshalltown winter? Don’t worry! Our professionals 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, consider the age of your furnace. 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 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 definitely see an impact on your utility 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 best 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.
