Our experts at realize that winter may not be the ideal time to get a new furnace. But you can likely concur that installing a new furnace in the winter will provide a better outcome than the discomfort and potential home damages our Ellsworth customers face if they have a breakdown.
To provide your furnace with a long, efficient life span, Walter's-Eaton's Electric, Plumbing, Heating & AC advises regular maintenance. But, even with the best care, 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 Ellsworth 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, consider 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. Many times, it doesn’t make sense to spend the additional money to repair a furnace that is older.
Next, review your energy costs. If they seem higher 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 definitely see an impact on your utility bills.
Another indication 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. Focusing your money on a new furnace instead of repairs could end up costing you less in the end.
