We know that winter isn’t the preferred season for furnace installation. However, you can agree that installing a new furnace in the winter sounds quite a bit better than the discomfort and potential home damages our Heflin customers face if the furnace isn’t working functioning properly.
In order to give your furnace the longest, most efficient life, Bain Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc recommends routine 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 Heflin winter? Don’t panic! Our qualified technicians will be here to take care of you, and make sure your family’s home comfort is met.
How will you know if you’re in need of a new furnace installation? First, review the age of your furnace. If it’s 15 to 20 years old, it’s probably nearing the end of its life span. In most cases, it doesn’t make sense to have the extra expenses to perform repairs.
Next, take a look at your energy bills. If they seem higher this season over previous years, your furnace may be struggling. 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 most cost-effective 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.
If you’re unsure if it’s time for a new furnace installation, just call Bain Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc at 256-270-1196 and our team will be happy to take a look and go over all of your options—whether that includes a replacement furnace or furnace repair. You can even schedule an appointment with us online if that’s more convenient. We are here to make sure you stay comfortable in your home during the Heflin winter.
