We recognize that once the cooler weather hits, you don’t want to be considering furnace installation. 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 Mount Pleasant customers face if their furnace stops working.
In order to give your furnace the longest, most efficient life, Olde Towne Heating & Air advises annual preventive 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 Mount Pleasant winter? Don’t panic! Our professionals will be here to take care of you, putting your family’s comfort as our top priority.
How can you determine if you are ready for a new furnace? First, think about the age of your furnace. If it’s 15 to 20 years old, it’s possibly nearing the end of its life span. Many times, it doesn’t make sense to have the extra expenses to perform repairs.
Next, review your energy costs. If they seem more costly this season over previous years, your furnace may be having a hard time keeping up. Furnaces lose efficiency over time. 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 call for multiple repairs. Further repairs may not be the best way to go. It may 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.
If you have questions on whether it’s time to replace your furnace, just call Olde Towne Heating & Air at 843-485-0967 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 more convenient. We are here to help you stay nice and cozy in your home during the Mount Pleasant winter.
