We recognize that once the cooler weather hits, you don’t want to be considering furnace installation. However, you can agree that installing a new furnace in the winter is a lot better than the discomfort and potential home damages our Front Royal customers face if their furnace stops working.
In order to give your furnace the longest, most efficient life, Dave's Diversified Services advises annual preventive maintenance. But, even with the best care, a furnace will reach a certain age and won’t be worth repairing. So, what happens if you find yourself in need of a new furance during the Front Royal winter? There’s no need to be concerned! Our professionals 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 the age of your furnace. If it’s 15 to 20 years old, it’s possibly 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, review your energy costs. If they seem greater this season over previous years, your furnace may be having a hard time keeping up. Furnaces lose efficiency as they get older. When this happens, you’ll see the evidence on your heating bills.
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 most cost-effective 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.
If you have questions on whether it’s time to replace your furnace, just call Dave's Diversified Services at 540-636-3396 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 more convenient. We are here to make sure you stay warm in your home during the Front Royal winter.
