We know that winter isn’t the preferred season for furnace installation. But you can likely concur that installing a new furnace in the winter will provide a better outcome than the discomfort and potential home damages our Middletown customers face if the furnace isn’t working functioning properly.
To provide your furnace with a long, efficient life span, SchagrinGAS Company recommends annual preventive maintenance. Despite providing your heating system with lots of attention, a furnace will reach a certain age and it won’t be cost-effective to perform repairs. So, what happens if you find yourself in need of a new furance during the Middletown winter? There’s no need to be concerned! Our experts will be here to take care of you, making your home comfort our focus.
What factors will help you determine if it’s time for a replacement 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 spend the additional money to repair a furnace that is older.
Next, check your utility bills. If they seem greater 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 see the evidence on your heating bills.
Another sign 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.
You don’t have to figure this out on your own, just call SchagrinGAS Company at 302-231-1380 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. You can even arrange an appointment with us online if that’s easiest for you. We are here to make sure you stay warm in your home during the Middletown winter.
