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 sounds quite a bit better than the discomfort and potential home damages our Auburn customers face if they have a breakdown.
To help make sure your furnace is running properly and efficiently, Forster Heating advises 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 Auburn winter? Don’t panic! Our qualified technicians will be here to take care of you, putting your family’s comfort as our top priority.
How will you know if you’re in need of a new furnace installation? First, think about how old your furnace is. 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 put money into repairing a furnace that’s so old.
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 as they get older. 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 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. Putting your money towards a newer model rather than another repair could help you save money over the long term.
If you’re unsure if it’s time for a new furnace installation, just call Forster Heating at 530-885-8081 and our experts 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 book an appointment with us online if that’s easiest for you. We are here to help you stay comfortable in your home during the Auburn winter.
