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 Anchorage customers face if their furnace stops working.
To help make sure your furnace is running properly and efficiently, Discount Mechanical Heating & Plumbing Services advises 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 Anchorage 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 the age of your furnace. 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, check your utility bills. If they seem higher this season over previous years, your furnace may be struggling. Furnaces lose efficiency over time. When this happens, you’ll see the evidence on your heating bills.
Another sign 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 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.
You don’t have to figure this out on your own, just call Discount Mechanical Heating & Plumbing Services at 907-202-9798 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 schedule an appointment with us online if that’s easiest for you. We are here to make sure you stay nice and cozy in your home during the Anchorage winter.
