So, what happens if your furnace reaches this time during the Mankato area winter? There’s no need to be concerned! Our professionals will be here to take care of you, and make sure your family’s home comfort is met.
How will you know if you’re in need of a new furnace installation? First, consider 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 spend the additional money to repair a furnace that is older.
Next, take a look at your energy bills. If they seem higher this season over previous years, your furnace may be having a hard time keeping up. Furnaces lose efficiency over time. When this happens, you’ll notice a change in your heating costs.
Another sign 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 best 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.
