HVAC Expert installing a furnace

Its Never Too Late for Furnace Installation

Our experts at realize that winter may not be the ideal time to get a new furnace. 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 Erie customers face if they have a breakdown.

To provide your furnace with a long, efficient life span, Patterson & Stirling Inc recommends routine maintenance. Even if you give your furnace optimal attention, 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 Erie winter? Don’t worry! Our experts will be here to take care of you, putting your family’s comfort as our top priority.

What factors will help you determine if it’s time for a replacement furnace? First, consider 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 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 having a hard time keeping up. Furnaces lose efficiency over time. When this happens, you’ll definitely see an impact on your utility bills.

Another sign that it may be time to replace your furnace is if you’ve had to call for multiple repairs. Further repairs may not be the most cost-effective way to go. It may 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 have questions on whether it’s time to replace your furnace, just call Patterson & Stirling Inc at 814-308-0416 and we’ll 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 make sure you stay nice and cozy in your home during the Erie winter.
