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 Bartlesville customers face if their furnace stops working.
In order to give your furnace the longest, most efficient life, Farris Heating & Air suggests routine maintenance. Despite providing your heating system with lots of attention, a furnace will reach a certain age and you’ll be spending more money on repairs than you should. So, what happens if your furnace reaches this time during the Bartlesville winter? There’s no need to be concerned! Our experts will be here to take care of you, putting your family’s comfort as our top priority.
How can you determine if you are ready for a new furnace? First, consider 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 have the extra expenses to perform repairs.
Next, review your energy costs. If they seem higher this season over previous years, your furnace may be working harder than it should. Furnaces lose efficiency after awhile. When this happens, you’ll definitely see an impact on your utility bills.
Another sign that it may be time to replace your furnace is if you’ve had to schedule several repairs. Further repairs may not be the best way to go. It could 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 Farris Heating & Air at 918-333-0376 and we’ll 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 easier. We are here to make sure you stay comfortable in your home during the Bartlesville winter.
