Our experts at realize that winter may not be the ideal time to get a new furnace. We also know that installing a new furnace in the winter sounds quite a bit better than the discomfort and potential home damages our Wisconsin Rapids customers face if their furnace stops working.
To help make sure your furnace is running properly and efficiently, Rapids Sheet Metal Works Inc advises routine 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 the time comes during the Wisconsin Rapids winter? There’s no need to be concerned! Our professionals 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, think about 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 put money into repairing a furnace that’s so old.
Next, check your utility bills. If they seem greater 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 see the evidence on your heating bills.
Another sign 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. Putting your money towards a newer model rather than another repair could help you save money over the long term.
