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 Houston customers face if their furnace stops working.
In order to give your furnace the longest, most efficient life, Marcos AC & Heating suggests regular maintenance. But, even with the best care, a furnace will reach a certain age and it won’t be cost-effective to perform repairs. So, what happens if you find yourself in need of a new furance during the Houston winter? There’s no need to be concerned! 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, consider the age of your furnace. If it’s 15 to 20 years old, it’s likely nearing the end of its life span. In most cases, 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 more costly this season over previous years, your furnace may be struggling. Furnaces lose efficiency as they get older. When this happens, you’ll definitely see an impact on your utility 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 might 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.
You don’t have to figure this out on your own, just call Marcos AC & Heating at 713-469-3357 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 arrange an appointment with us online if that’s easiest for you. We are here to ensure you stay comfortable in your home during the Houston winter.
