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 Kearney customers face if they have a breakdown.
To help make sure your furnace is running properly and efficiently, Thurston Heating & Air Conditioning 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 the time comes during the Kearney winter? Don’t panic! 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 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 put money into repairing a furnace that’s so old.
Next, check your utility bills. If they seem higher this season over previous years, your furnace may be working harder than it should. Furnaces lose efficiency after awhile. When this happens, you’ll definitely see an impact on your utility 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 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.
If you’re unsure if it’s time for a new furnace installation, just call Thurston Heating & Air Conditioning at 308-624-3485 and our team will be happy to take a look and review all of your options—whether that includes a replacement furnace or furnace repair.
