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 will provide a better outcome than the discomfort and potential home damages our Plainfield customers face if their furnace stops working.
To help make sure your furnace is running properly and efficiently, PWA Heating & Cooling Inc recommends regular maintenance. Despite providing your heating system with lots of attention, 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 Plainfield 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.
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 likely nearing the end of its life span. In most cases, it doesn’t make sense to put money into repairing a furnace that’s so old.
Next, take a look at your energy bills. If they seem greater this season over previous years, your furnace may be having a hard time keeping up. Furnaces lose efficiency over time. When this happens, you’ll see the evidence on your heating bills.
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.
You don’t have to figure this out on your own, just call PWA Heating & Cooling Inc at 815-410-1231 and our experts 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 arrange an appointment with us online if that’s more convenient. We are here to help you stay nice and cozy in your home during the Plainfield winter.
