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 Brandon customers face if they have a breakdown.
To help make sure your furnace is running properly and efficiently, Brandon Heating and Plumbing advises regular maintenance. Despite providing your heating system with lots of attention, a furnace will reach a certain age and won’t be worth repairing. So, what happens if your furnace reaches this time during the Brandon winter? There’s no need to be concerned! Our qualified technicians 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, review 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. Many times, it doesn’t make sense to have the extra expenses to perform repairs.
Next, take a look at your energy bills. If they seem more costly this season over previous years, your furnace may be struggling. Furnaces lose efficiency as they get older. When this happens, you’ll notice a change in your heating costs.
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 might be in your best interest to replace your furnace with a new, more energy-efficient model. Investing in a newer model will likely save you money in the long run.
You don’t have to figure this out on your own, just call Brandon Heating and Plumbing at 204-728-0180 and our experts will 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 more convenient. We are here to help you stay comfortable in your home during the Brandon winter.
