HVAC Expert installing a furnace

Its Never Too Late for Furnace Installation

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 Libertyville customers face if their furnace stops working.

To provide your furnace with a long, efficient life span, Toptec Heating, Cooling, Plumbing & Electrical suggests routine maintenance. Even if you give your furnace optimal 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 Libertyville winter? Don’t panic! Our qualified technicians will be here to take care of you, and make sure your family’s home comfort is met.

How will you know if you’re in need of a new furnace installation? First, review the age of your furnace. 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, review your energy costs. If they seem higher this season over previous years, your furnace may be working harder than it should. Furnaces lose efficiency as they get older. When this happens, you’ll notice a change in your heating costs.

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 best way to go. It might 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 review all of your options—whether that includes a replacement furnace or furnace repair. You can even book an appointment with us online if that’s more convenient. We are here to help you stay comfortable in your home during the Libertyville winter.
