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 will provide a better outcome than the discomfort and potential home damages our Columbus customers face if they have a breakdown.
In order to give your furnace the longest, most efficient life, Wolfe & Sons Heating and Cooling suggests 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 you find yourself in need of a new furance during the Columbus winter? Don’t worry! Our qualified technicians will be here to take care of you, making your home comfort our focus.
How will you know if you’re in need of a new furnace installation? First, consider 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, take a look at your energy bills. If they seem greater this season over previous years, your furnace may be having a hard time keeping up. Furnaces lose efficiency after awhile. 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 it repaired a number of times. Further repairs may not be the most cost-effective 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 Wolfe & Sons Heating and Cooling at 614-451-0846 and we’ll 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 more convenient. We are here to make sure you stay nice and cozy in your home during the Columbus winter.
