We know that winter isn’t the preferred season for furnace installation. However, you can agree that installing a new furnace in the winter will provide a better outcome than the discomfort and potential home damages our Erie customers face if they have a breakdown.
To help make sure your furnace is running properly and efficiently, Patterson & Stirling Inc advises routine maintenance. But, even with the best care, a furnace will reach a certain age and won’t be worth repairing. So, what happens if your furnace reaches this time during the Erie winter? Don’t worry! Our professionals will be here to take care of you, and make sure your family’s home comfort is met.
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. Oftentimes, it doesn’t make sense to spend the additional money to repair a furnace that is older.
Next, take a look at your energy bills. If they seem higher this season over previous years, your furnace may be struggling. Furnaces lose efficiency over time. 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 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.
You don’t have to figure this out on your own, just call Patterson & Stirling Inc at 814-308-0416 and our experts will 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 more convenient. We are here to ensure you stay warm in your home during the Erie winter.
