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 will provide a better outcome than the discomfort and potential home damages our Gresham customers face if their furnace stops working.
To provide your furnace with a long, efficient life span, Honke Heating & AC suggests regular maintenance. But, even with the best care, a furnace will reach a certain age and it won’t be cost-effective to perform repairs. So, what happens if your furnace reaches this time during the Gresham winter? Don’t worry! Our professionals 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 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 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 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 ideal way to go. It might 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.
You don’t have to figure this out on your own, just call Honke Heating & AC at 503-663-8033 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 more convenient. We are here to make sure you stay comfortable in your home during the Gresham winter.
