Understandably, now that the cooler fall weather has come, furnace replacement and installation are probably not something you are thinking about. However, what we, at HVAC Philly, do know is that having a new furnace installed in late fall or early winter is considerably better than the possible damage and discomfort that could come to our greater Philadelphia, PA customers if they should have a heating system breakdown.
Ultimately your goal is to help your furnace lengthen its longevity as well as efficiency for as long as possible. HVAC Philly is adamant about regular furnace and heating system maintenance. Even the most well taken care of and maintained furnaces will inevitably reach the age where repairs and maintenance are simply no longer worth the cost. What happens if you have reached the end of the “repair” line and it is smack in the middle of a Philadelphia, PA winter? First, would be to contact one of our HVAC professionals at HVAC Philly, and we will ensure that your home is made comfortable with a new furnace installation that suits your home.
Signs That You Are Ready For A New Furnace
What is the age of your furnace? If your heat pump or furnace is 15 to 20 years old, it is definitely near the end of its lifespan. It is not cost effective to keep putting money into repairing a furnace that has reached its lifespan.
Are your energy bills on the rise? If your heating bill is getting higher than in previous years, that could be a sign that your furnace is not working as efficiently as it should be. Furnaces will lose efficiency over the years. Once this starts to happen you will see it impacting your heating and energy bills.
Have you been scheduling more and more frequent repairs? A sign that the time has come to replace your furnace, is if you find yourself on a first name basis with the customer service rep at your local HVAC company. Again, if you are at the end of the lifespan of your furnace, more repairs will only briefly fix the problem. Further repairs may not be the best way to go. Replacing your furnace with a new, more energy-efficient model will benefit your home comfort level as well as your wallet.
