We know that winter isn’t the preferred season for furnace installation. But you can likely concur that installing a new furnace in the winter sounds quite a bit better than the discomfort and potential home damages our Bloomfield customers face if they have a breakdown.
To help make sure your furnace is running properly and efficiently, Stanford Heating & Cooling 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 the time comes during the Bloomfield winter? Don’t worry! Our professionals 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, think about the age of your furnace. 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, take a look at your energy bills. If they seem greater this season over previous years, your furnace may be working harder than it should. Furnaces lose efficiency after awhile. 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 call for multiple repairs. Further repairs may not be the most cost-effective way to go. It could 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.
You don’t have to figure this out on your own, just call Stanford Heating & Cooling at 812-825-8695 and we’ll be happy to take a look and discuss all of your options—whether that includes a replacement furnace or furnace repair. You can even arrange an appointment with us online if that’s easiest for you. We are here to ensure you stay warm in your home during the Bloomfield winter.
