We recognize that once the cooler weather hits, you don’t want to be considering furnace installation. But you can likely concur that installing a new furnace in the winter will provide a better outcome than the discomfort and potential home damages our Franklin Lakes customers face if the furnace isn’t working functioning properly.
To help make sure your furnace is running properly and efficiently, Total Comfort advises annual preventive maintenance. Despite providing your heating system with lots of attention, 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 Franklin Lakes winter? Don’t panic! 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 the age of your furnace. If it’s 15 to 20 years old, it’s probably 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 struggling. Furnaces lose efficiency over time. When this happens, you’ll definitely see an impact on your utility bills.
Another signal that it may be time to replace your furnace is if you’ve had to schedule several repairs. 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. Focusing your money on a new furnace instead of repairs could end up costing you less in the end.
You don’t have to figure this out on your own, just call Total Comfort at 201-268-5663 and our experts will be happy to take a look and go over 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 ensure you stay comfortable in your home during the Franklin Lakes winter.
