Our experts at realize that winter may not be the ideal time to get a new furnace. 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 Des Moines customers face if they have a breakdown.
To help make sure your furnace is running properly and efficiently, Kohles & Bach Heating & 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 you find yourself in need of a new furance during the Des Moines winter? Don’t worry! Our professionals 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, review 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. In most cases, it doesn’t make sense to spend the additional money to repair a furnace that is older.
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 over time. When this happens, you’ll see the evidence on your heating bills.
Another indication that it may be time to replace your furnace is if you’ve had to schedule several repairs. 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.
