We know that winter isn’t the preferred season for furnace installation. However, you can agree that installing a new furnace in the winter will provide a better outcome than the discomfort and potential home damages our McHenry customers face if they have a breakdown.
In order to give your furnace the longest, most efficient life, Jett's Heating & Air Inc. suggests regular 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 you find yourself in need of a new furance during the McHenry winter? Don’t worry! Our qualified technicians will be here to take care of you, making your home comfort our focus.
How will you know if you’re in need of a new furnace installation? First, review the age of your furnace. If it’s 15 to 20 years old, it’s possibly nearing the end of its life span. In most cases, 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 more costly this season over previous years, your furnace may be working harder than it should. Furnaces lose efficiency over time. When this happens, you’ll notice a change in your heating costs.
Another signal that it may be time to replace your furnace is if you’ve had to call for multiple 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. Focusing your money on a new furnace instead of repairs could end up costing you less in the end.
