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 Lafayette customers face if they have a breakdown.
In order to give your furnace the longest, most efficient life, AC Sales suggests regular maintenance. But, even with the best care, a furnace will reach a certain age and you’ll be spending more money on repairs than you should. So, what happens if your furnace reaches this time during the Lafayette winter? There’s no need to be concerned! Our experts will be here to take care of you, and make sure your family’s home comfort is met.
What factors will help you determine if it’s time for a replacement furnace? First, review how long you have had your current system. 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 spend the additional money to repair a furnace that is older.
Next, check your utility bills. If they seem more costly this season over previous years, your furnace may be struggling. 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 to schedule several repairs. 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’re unsure if it’s time for a new furnace installation, just call AC Sales at (337) 234-2345 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.
