Winter is here! Which means the cold air is settling in and the snow will start to build up soon. So what if you need a new furnace, is it too late to replace an old furnace that is not heating your home correctly?
The Best Time to Replace Your Furnace
It is obvious that if your furnace breaks in the middle of winter and repair costs are extremely high, a replacement is a smarter option. You can replace your furnace in winter without doing damage to your home. A furnace replacement can be done year round, however the best time to replace your furnace is before the cold days hit. Replacing your furnace before the cold air arrives allows you to stay comfortable through the winter.
When to Know You Need Furnace Replacement
There are a few tell-tale signs that can let you know that your furnace may need to be replaced.
- Rising Energy Costs – If you see a sharp rise in your energy bills, this can signal that an old furnace is on the way out or is no longer working efficiently.
- Mounting Repair Costs – If you have the furnace repairman on speed dial, it could be time to replace your aging furnace with a new energy efficient model.
- Age – If your furnace has hit the 15-year mark and is not keeping up with your home’s comfort needs you may want to replace it sooner rather than later.
- Home Comfort Issues – If your home is feeling cold no matter how high you turn your furnace up it is likely that your current furnace can no longer get the job done.
