We know that winter isn’t the preferred season for 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 Ballwin and St. Charles customers face if they have a breakdown.
To provide your furnace with a long, efficient life span, Air Alliance Team advises routine maintenance. Even if you give your furnace optimal attention, a furnace will reach a certain age and you’ll be spending more money on repairs than you should. So, what happens if the time comes during the Ballwin and St. Charles 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, think about how old your furnace is. If it’s 15 to 20 years old, it’s possibly 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, check your utility bills. If they seem greater this season over previous years, your furnace may be having a hard time keeping up. Furnaces lose efficiency after awhile. When this happens, you’ll definitely see an impact on your utility bills.
Another indication that it may be time to replace your furnace is if you’ve had to schedule several repairs. Further repairs may not be the ideal 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 Air Alliance Team at 636-206-4250 and our team 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 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 Ballwin and St. Charles winter.
