HVAC Expert installing a furnace

Its Never Too Late for Furnace Installation

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 is a lot better than the discomfort and potential home damages our Alice customers face if the furnace isn’t working functioning properly.

In order to give your furnace the longest, most efficient life, Rescue Heating & Air suggests routine maintenance. But, even with the best care, a furnace will reach a certain age and won’t be worth repairing. So, what happens if the time comes during the Alice winter? Don’t panic! Our experts will be here to take care of you, putting your family’s comfort as our top priority.

What factors will help you determine if it’s time for a replacement furnace? First, think about the age of your furnace. If it’s 15 to 20 years old, it’s possibly 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, take a look at your energy bills. If they seem higher this season over previous years, your furnace may be having a hard time keeping up. 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 to call for multiple repairs. 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. Putting your money towards a newer model rather than another repair could help you save money over the long term.

If you have questions on whether it’s time to replace your furnace, just call Rescue Heating & Air at 361-265-4371 and we’ll 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 book an appointment with us online if that’s easier. We are here to ensure you stay comfortable in your home during the Alice winter.
