We know that winter isn’t the preferred season for furnace installation. We also know that installing a new furnace in the winter sounds quite a bit better than the discomfort and potential home damages our Greensburg customers face if their furnace stops working.
To help make sure your furnace is running properly and efficiently, Wallpe Heating & Cooling recommends regular maintenance. Even if you give your furnace optimal attention, a furnace will reach a certain age and it won’t be cost-effective to perform repairs. So, what happens if you find yourself in need of a new furance during the Greensburg winter? Don’t worry! 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 how long you have had your current system. 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 spend the additional money to repair a furnace that is older.
Next, take a look at your energy bills. 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 see the evidence on your heating bills.
Another sign 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 ideal way to go. It might 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.
If you’re unsure if it’s time for a new furnace installation, just call Wallpe Heating & Cooling at 812-663-7252 and we’ll be happy to take a look and review 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 easier. We are here to make sure you stay comfortable in your home during the Greensburg winter.
