HVAC Expert installing a furnace

Its Never Too Late for Furnace Installation

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 sounds quite a bit better than the discomfort and potential home damages our Plainfield customers face if they have a breakdown.

To help make sure your furnace is running properly and efficiently, PWA Heating & Cooling Inc advises annual preventive 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 you find yourself in need of a new furance during the Plainfield winter? Don’t panic! Our experts will be here to take care of you, putting your family’s comfort as our top priority.

How can you determine if you are ready for a new 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. Oftentimes, 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 more costly this season over previous years, your furnace may be working harder than it should. Furnaces lose efficiency after awhile. 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 it repaired a number of times. 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. Focusing your money on a new furnace instead of repairs could end up costing you less in the end.

If you have questions on whether it’s time to replace your furnace, just call PWA Heating & Cooling Inc at 815-410-1231 and our team will be happy to take a look and go over all of your options—whether that includes a replacement furnace or furnace repair. You can even book an appointment with us online if that’s easier. We are here to make sure you stay comfortable in your home during the Plainfield winter.
