We know that winter isn’t the preferred season for furnace installation. However, you can agree that installing a new furnace in the winter is a lot better than the discomfort and potential home damages our Newark customers face if their furnace stops working.
In order to give your furnace the longest, most efficient life, Luikart Heating & Cooling recommends annual preventive maintenance. Despite providing your heating system with lots of attention, a furnace will reach a certain age and it won’t be cost-effective to perform repairs. So, what happens if your furnace reaches this time during the Newark winter? Don’t worry! Our experts 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, review 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. Oftentimes, it doesn’t make sense to put money into repairing a furnace that’s so old.
Next, check your utility bills. If they seem greater 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 notice a change in your heating costs.
Another signal 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. Focusing your money on a new furnace instead of repairs could end up costing you less in the end.
If you have questions on whether it’s time to replace your furnace, just call Luikart Heating & Cooling at 740-200-5591 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 make sure you stay warm in your home during the Newark winter.
