Our experts at realize that winter may not be the ideal time to get a new furnace. However, you can agree that installing a new furnace in the winter sounds quite a bit better than the discomfort and potential home damages our Carson City customers face if they have a breakdown.
To provide your furnace with a long, efficient life span, Anderson Heating & A/C advises routine maintenance. But, even with the best care, a furnace will reach a certain age and it won’t be cost-effective to perform repairs. So, what happens if the time comes during the Carson City winter? Don’t panic! Our qualified technicians will be here to take care of you, and make sure your family’s home comfort is met.
How can you determine if you are ready for a new furnace? First, think about how long you have had your current system. If it’s 15 to 20 years old, it’s likely nearing the end of its life span. Oftentimes, 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 working harder than it should. Furnaces lose efficiency as they get older. When this happens, you’ll definitely see an impact on your utility bills.
Another signal 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 might be in your best interest to replace your furnace with a new, more energy-efficient model. Investing in a newer model will likely save you money in the long run.
