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 Bishop customers face if they have a breakdown.
To help make sure your furnace is running properly and efficiently, Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning recommends annual preventive maintenance. Despite providing your heating system with lots of attention, a furnace will reach a certain age and it won’t be cost-effective to perform repairs. So, what happens if you find yourself in need of a new furance during the Bishop 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 likely nearing the end of its life span. Many times, 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 having a hard time keeping up. Furnaces lose efficiency as they get older. 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 it repaired a number of times. Further repairs may not be the ideal way to go. It may 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.
