HVAC Expert installing a furnace

Its Never Too Late for Furnace Installation

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 will provide a better outcome than the discomfort and potential home damages our Kearney customers face if they have a breakdown.

To provide your furnace with a long, efficient life span, Thurston Heating & Air Conditioning recommends annual preventive 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 your furnace reaches this time 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 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. In most cases, it doesn’t make sense to have the extra expenses to perform repairs.

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 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 it repaired a number of times. Further repairs may not be the best way to go. It could 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.

You don’t have to figure this out on your own, 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. You can even arrange an appointment with us online if that’s easier. We are here to make sure you stay warm in your home during the Kearney winter.
