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 is a lot better than the discomfort and potential home damages our Laurel customers face if their furnace stops working.
In order to give your furnace the longest, most efficient life, H&C Heating and Cooling recommends annual preventive maintenance. Even if you give your furnace optimal attention, a furnace will reach a certain age and you’ll be spending more money on repairs than you should. So, what happens if you find yourself in need of a new furance during the Laurel winter? There’s no need to be concerned! Our qualified technicians will be here to take care of you, putting your family’s comfort as our top priority.
What factors will help you determine if it’s time for a replacement furnace? First, review how old your furnace is. If it’s 15 to 20 years old, it’s probably nearing the end of its life span. Many times, it doesn’t make sense to have the extra expenses to perform repairs.
Next, review your energy costs. If they seem greater this season over previous years, your furnace may be working harder than it should. Furnaces lose efficiency over time. 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 to call for multiple repairs. Further repairs may not be the most cost-effective way to go. It might be in your best interest to replace your furnace with a new, more energy-efficient model. Putting your money towards a newer model rather than another repair could help you save money over the long term.
