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 sounds quite a bit better than the discomfort and potential home damages our Beckley and Mount Hope customers face if their furnace stops working.
In order to give your furnace the longest, most efficient life, Appalachian Heating advises routine 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 the time comes during the Beckley and Mount Hope winter? Don’t panic! Our professionals 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 likely 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 after awhile. 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 schedule several repairs. Further repairs may not be the best way to go. It could be in your best interest to replace your furnace with a new, more energy-efficient model. Investing in a newer model will likely save you money in the long run.
You don’t have to figure this out on your own, just call Appalachian Heating at 304-707-0600 and our team will be happy to take a look and discuss 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 help you stay warm in your home during the Beckley and Mount Hope winter.
