We recognize that once the cooler weather hits, you don’t want to be considering furnace installation. But you can likely concur that installing a new furnace in the winter is a lot better than the discomfort and potential home damages our Des Moines customers face if the furnace isn’t working functioning properly.
In order to give your furnace the longest, most efficient life, Heartland Heating & Cooling recommends annual preventive maintenance. Even if you give your furnace optimal attention, a furnace will reach a certain age and you’ll be spending more money on repairs than you should. So, what happens if you find yourself in need of a new furance during the Des Moines winter? Don’t worry! Our professionals 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 probably 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 greater this season over previous years, your furnace may be struggling. Furnaces lose efficiency as they get older. When this happens, you’ll notice a change in your heating costs.
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 best way to go. It might 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.
If you’re unsure if it’s time for a new furnace installation, just call Heartland Heating & Cooling at 515-344-3579 and our team will be happy to take a look and go over 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 easier. We are here to make sure you stay nice and cozy in your home during the Des Moines winter.
