Our experts at realize that winter may not be the ideal time to get a new furnace. But you can likely concur that installing a new furnace in the winter is a lot better than the discomfort and potential home damages our Williamsport customers face if they have a breakdown.
To provide your furnace with a long, efficient life span, Lycoming Heating Company advises regular maintenance. But, even with the best care, a furnace will reach a certain age and won’t be worth repairing. So, what happens if your furnace reaches this time during the Williamsport winter? Don’t panic! Our professionals will be here to take care of you, making your home comfort our focus.
How can you determine if you are ready for a new furnace? First, review how long you have had your current system. If it’s 15 to 20 years old, it’s possibly 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 higher this season over previous years, your furnace may be working harder than it should. Furnaces lose efficiency over time. 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 to call for multiple repairs. 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. Investing in a newer model will likely save you money in the long run.
