We recognize that once the cooler weather hits, you don’t want to be considering furnace installation. We also know that installing a new furnace in the winter will provide a better outcome than the discomfort and potential home damages our Columbia customers face if they have a breakdown.
In order to give your furnace the longest, most efficient life, Watts Electric & A/C Inc advises annual preventive maintenance. Despite providing your heating system with lots of attention, a furnace will reach a certain age and won’t be worth repairing. So, what happens if you find yourself in need of a new furance during the Columbia winter? Don’t panic! Our experts 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. 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 greater 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 sign 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 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.
You don’t have to figure this out on your own, just call Watts Electric & A/C Inc at 601-736-7362 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 easier. We are here to make sure you stay comfortable in your home during the Columbia winter.
