We know that winter isn’t the preferred season for furnace installation. However, you can agree that installing a new furnace in the winter will provide a better outcome than the discomfort and potential home damages our Wausau customers face if they have a breakdown.
In order to give your furnace the longest, most efficient life, Gilray Heating and Cooling suggests annual preventive 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 Wausau winter? Don’t panic! Our qualified technicians will be here to take care of you, making your home comfort our focus.
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 possibly 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 greater this season over previous years, your furnace may be working harder than it should. Furnaces lose efficiency after awhile. When this happens, you’ll notice a change in your heating costs.
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 ideal way to go. It could 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.
If you have questions on whether it’s time to replace your furnace, just call Gilray Heating and Cooling at 715-301-0727 and our team will be happy to take a look and go over all of your options—whether that includes a replacement furnace or furnace repair.
