Our experts at realize that winter may not be the ideal time to get a new furnace. We also know that installing a new furnace in the winter will provide a better outcome than the discomfort and potential home damages our Lexington customers face if their furnace stops working.
In order to give your furnace the longest, most efficient life, James Heating & A/C, Inc recommends routine maintenance. Even if you give your furnace optimal attention, a furnace will reach a certain age and won’t be worth repairing. So, what happens if your furnace reaches this time during the Lexington winter? Don’t panic! Our qualified technicians will be here to take care of you, putting your family’s comfort as our top priority.
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. In most cases, it doesn’t make sense to put money into repairing a furnace that’s so old.
Next, check your utility bills. If they seem more costly 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 signal 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 best way to go. It could be in your best interest to replace your furnace with a new, more energy-efficient model. Focusing your money on a new furnace instead of repairs could end up costing you less in the end.
