Your furnace works hard for almost half of the year, and it’s too easy to forget about proper maintenance and replacing it when it’s time. The last thing you want is to have to replace a furnace in a hurry because it stopped working – although with 24/7 emergency service, even that is possible. Still, it’s better to watch for signs that it’s time to replace your furnace before it breaks down and leaves you in the cold for hours at a time.
When It’s Old or Wearing Down
Schedule a consultation with Belknap Heating and Cooling to take a look at your furnace if it’s been giving you any issues or is more than a decade old. If parts are wearing down and it’ll cost more to replace them than to buy a new furnace, it makes sense to upgrade. If it’s still operational but over a decade old, the newer models will prove much more efficient, which will save you money on your heating bills.
With tax credits, discounts and specials, the cost of replacing a furnace is likely to be far less than you imagine. Plus, if you shop once the cooler season is underway – particularly if you wait until late winter or spring – you’re sure to find even better discounts. At the very least, you need to arrange twice-a-year cleaning sessions with heating experts to keep your current system in top form.
