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 Arlington customers face if they have a breakdown.
In order to give your furnace the longest, most efficient life, Service Max Heating & Air Conditioning advises annual preventive maintenance. But, even with the best care, a furnace will reach a certain age and you’ll be spending more money on repairs than you should. So, what happens if you find yourself in need of a new furance during the Arlington winter? Don’t panic! Our experts will be here to take care of you, putting your family’s comfort as our top priority.
How can you determine if you are ready for a new 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. Many times, it doesn’t make sense to have the extra expenses to perform repairs.
Next, review your energy costs. If they seem more costly this season over previous years, your furnace may be having a hard time keeping up. Furnaces lose efficiency over time. 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 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. Putting your money towards a newer model rather than another repair could help you save money over the long term.
If you have questions on whether it’s time to replace your furnace, just call Service Max Heating & Air Conditioning at 360-255-5857 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 make sure you stay comfortable in your home during the Arlington winter.
