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 Libertyville customers face if their furnace stops working.
In order to give your furnace the longest, most efficient life, TopTec Heating, Cooling, Plumbing & Electrical recommends 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 you find yourself in need of a new furance during the Libertyville winter? There’s no need to be concerned! Our experts will be here to take care of you, putting your family’s comfort as our top priority.
How will you know if you’re in need of a new furnace installation? First, review how long you have had your current system. If it’s 15 to 20 years old, it’s probably nearing the end of its life span. Oftentimes, it doesn’t make sense to put money into repairing a furnace that’s so old.
Next, take a look at your energy bills. If they seem more costly this season over previous years, your furnace may be working harder than it should. Furnaces lose efficiency over time. When this happens, you’ll see the evidence on your heating bills.
Another signal 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 may 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.
If you have questions on whether it’s time to replace your furnace, just call TopTec Heating, Cooling, Plumbing & Electrical at 847-362-0262 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. You can even schedule an appointment with us online if that’s easier. We are here to help you stay warm in your home during the Libertyville winter.
