We know that winter isn’t the preferred season for furnace installation. However, you can agree that installing a new furnace in the winter is a lot better than the discomfort and potential home damages our Lincoln customers face if they have a breakdown.
In order to give your furnace the longest, most efficient life, AW Heating & Air Conditioning recommends annual preventive maintenance. Even if you give your furnace optimal attention, a furnace will reach a certain age and won’t be worth repairing. So, what happens if your furnace reaches this time during the Lincoln winter? Don’t panic! Our professionals will be here to take care of you, and make sure your family’s home comfort is met.
How will you know if you’re in need of a new furnace installation? First, consider 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. Oftentimes, it doesn’t make sense to spend the additional money to repair a furnace that is older.
Next, review your energy costs. If they seem more costly this season over previous years, your furnace may be working harder than it should. Furnaces lose efficiency over time. When this happens, you’ll see the evidence on your heating bills.
Another indication 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 ideal 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’re unsure if it’s time for a new furnace installation, just call AW Heating & Air Conditioning at 402-318-5351 and our team will be happy to take a look and review 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 nice and cozy in your home during the Lincoln winter.
