HVAC Expert installing a furnace

Its Never Too Late for Furnace Installation

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 Lexington customers face if the furnace isn’t working functioning properly.

To help make sure your furnace is running properly and efficiently, James Heating & A/C, Inc suggests annual preventive maintenance. But, even with the best care, a furnace will reach a certain age and it won’t be cost-effective to perform repairs. So, what happens if the time comes during the Lexington winter? Don’t panic! Our qualified technicians 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, consider the age of your furnace. If it’s 15 to 20 years old, it’s probably 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 higher this season over previous years, your furnace may be struggling. Furnaces lose efficiency as they get older. When this happens, you’ll notice a change in your heating costs.

Another sign that it may be time to replace your furnace is if you’ve had to schedule several repairs. Further repairs may not be the ideal way to go. It could 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.

You don’t have to figure this out on your own, just call James Heating & A/C, Inc at 336-853-6070 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 arrange an appointment with us online if that’s more convenient. We are here to ensure you stay comfortable in your home during the Lexington winter.
