We know that winter isn’t the preferred season for furnace installation. We also know that installing a new furnace in the winter sounds quite a bit better than the discomfort and potential home damages our Racine customers face if the furnace isn’t working functioning properly.
To provide your furnace with a long, efficient life span, Keystone Heating & Air Conditioning Co., Inc suggests annual preventive maintenance. Despite providing your heating system with lots of attention, a furnace will reach a certain age and won’t be worth repairing. So, what happens if your furnace reaches this time during the Racine winter? Don’t panic! Our qualified technicians will be here to take care of you, making your home comfort our focus.
How can you determine if you are ready for a new furnace? First, think about how old your furnace is. If it’s 15 to 20 years old, it’s likely nearing the end of its life span. Oftentimes, it doesn’t make sense to have the extra expenses to perform repairs.
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 over time. When this happens, you’ll see the evidence on your heating bills.
Another indication 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 have questions on whether it’s time to replace your furnace, just call Keystone Heating & Air Conditioning Co., Inc at 262-358-9468 and our experts 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 book an appointment with us online if that’s easier. We are here to help you stay warm in your home during the Racine winter.
