We recognize that once the cooler weather hits, you don’t want to be considering 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 Alice customers face if their furnace stops working.
In order to give your furnace the longest, most efficient life, Rescue Heating & Air recommends regular 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 your furnace reaches this time during the Alice winter? Don’t panic! Our qualified technicians will be here to take care of you, making your home comfort our focus.
How can you determine if you are ready for a new furnace? First, think about how long you have had your current system. 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 spend the additional money to repair a furnace that is older.
Next, check your utility bills. If they seem more costly this season over previous years, your furnace may be struggling. Furnaces lose efficiency after awhile. 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 most cost-effective way to go. It may 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.
If you’re unsure if it’s time for a new furnace installation, just call Rescue Heating & Air at 361-265-4371 and our experts 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 easier. We are here to ensure you stay comfortable in your home during the Alice winter.
