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 Sacramento customers face if the furnace isn’t working functioning properly.
To provide your furnace with a long, efficient life span, American HVAC 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 the time comes during the Sacramento winter? There’s no need to be concerned! Our professionals will be here to take care of you, making your home comfort our focus.
How can you determine if you are ready for a new furnace? First, think about how long you have had your current system. 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 put money into repairing a furnace that’s so old.
Next, check your utility bills. If they seem more costly this season over previous years, your furnace may be struggling. Furnaces lose efficiency as they get older. When this happens, you’ll see the evidence on your heating bills.
Another signal 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 ideal way to go. It may 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’re unsure if it’s time for a new furnace installation, just call American HVAC Inc at 916-243-6714 and our team will be happy to take a look and review 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 easier. We are here to ensure you stay comfortable in your home during the Sacramento winter.
