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 sounds quite a bit better than the discomfort and potential home damages our Lake Forest customers face if the furnace isn’t working functioning properly.
To help make sure your furnace is running properly and efficiently, 1st Choice Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. suggests 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 your furnace reaches this time during the Lake Forest winter? Don’t worry! Our qualified technicians will be here to take care of you, putting your family’s comfort as our top priority.
How can you determine if you are ready for a new furnace? First, think about how old your furnace is. If it’s 15 to 20 years old, it’s probably nearing the end of its life span. In most cases, 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 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 to schedule several repairs. Further repairs may not be the best way to go. It might be in your best interest to replace your furnace with a new, more energy-efficient model. Putting your money towards a newer model rather than another repair could help you save money over the long term.
You don’t have to figure this out on your own, just call 1st Choice Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. at 949-204-0859 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 ensure you stay nice and cozy in your home during the Lake Forest winter.
