We know that winter isn’t the preferred season for 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 Florissant customers face if their furnace stops working.
In order to give your furnace the longest, most efficient life, B & B Heating & Cooling suggests routine maintenance. But, even with the best care, a furnace will reach a certain age and it won’t be cost-effective to perform repairs. So, what happens if your furnace reaches this time during the Florissant winter? There’s no need to be concerned! Our qualified technicians 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 the age of your furnace. If it’s 15 to 20 years old, it’s possibly nearing the end of its life span. In most cases, it doesn’t make sense to have the extra expenses to perform repairs.
Next, check your utility bills. If they seem more costly this season over previous years, your furnace may be having a hard time keeping up. 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 it repaired a number of times. 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.
You don’t have to figure this out on your own, just call B & B Heating & Cooling at 314-325-7552 and we’ll 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 more convenient. We are here to help you stay warm in your home during the Florissant winter.
