Our experts at realize that winter may not be the ideal time to get a new furnace. 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 Menomonie and western Wisconsin customers face if they have a breakdown.
In order to give your furnace the longest, most efficient life, Halverson Brothers Inc suggests annual preventive maintenance. Despite providing your heating system with lots of 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 Menomonie and western Wisconsin winter? There’s no need to be concerned! Our qualified technicians 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, consider the age of your furnace. 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 more costly this season over previous years, your furnace may be having a hard time keeping up. Furnaces lose efficiency as they get older. When this happens, you’ll definitely see an impact on your utility bills.
Another signal 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 may 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 Halverson Brothers Inc at 715-352-4052 and our experts will be happy to take a look and go over 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 easiest for you. We are here to help you stay warm in your home during the Menomonie and western Wisconsin winter.
