Our experts at realize that winter may not be the ideal time to get a new furnace. But you can likely concur that installing a new furnace in the winter is a lot better than the discomfort and potential home damages our Cambridge customers face if they have a breakdown.
In order to give your furnace the longest, most efficient life, Pliescott HVAC Services LLC suggests annual preventive maintenance. But, even with the best care, a furnace will reach a certain age and won’t be worth repairing. So, what happens if the time comes during the Cambridge winter? Don’t worry! Our professionals 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, review how long you have had your current system. If it’s 15 to 20 years old, it’s probably nearing the end of its life span. Oftentimes, it doesn’t make sense to put money into repairing a furnace that’s so old.
Next, check your utility bills. If they seem greater this season over previous years, your furnace may be working harder than it should. Furnaces lose efficiency over time. When this happens, you’ll see the evidence on your heating bills.
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 best 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.
