We know that winter isn’t the preferred season for furnace installation. We also know that installing a new furnace in the winter is a lot better than the discomfort and potential home damages our Macon customers face if the furnace isn’t working functioning properly.
To provide your furnace with a long, efficient life span, Air Temperature Control 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 you find yourself in need of a new furance during the Macon winter? Don’t panic! Our qualified technicians will be here to take care of you, and make sure your family’s home comfort is met.
What factors will help you determine if it’s time for a replacement furnace? First, consider the age of your furnace. 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 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 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 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 best 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.
If you have questions on whether it’s time to replace your furnace, just call Air Temperature Control at 478-202-3170 and our team 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 book an appointment with us online if that’s more convenient. We are here to help you stay warm in your home during the Macon winter.
