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 will provide a better outcome than the discomfort and potential home damages our Long Island customers face if their furnace stops working.
In order to give your furnace the longest, most efficient life, Airmax Long Island Inc suggests annual preventive maintenance. Despite providing your heating system with lots of attention, a furnace will reach a certain age and won’t be worth repairing. So, what happens if the time comes during the Long Island winter? Don’t worry! Our experts will be here to take care of you, and make sure your family’s home comfort is met.
How can you determine if you are ready for a new furnace? 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. Many times, it doesn’t make sense to put money into repairing a furnace that’s so old.
Next, take a look at your energy bills. If they seem greater this season over previous years, your furnace may be working harder than it should. 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 to call for multiple repairs. Further repairs may not be the most cost-effective way to go. It could 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.
