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 sounds quite a bit better than the discomfort and potential home damages our Pocatello customers face if their furnace stops working.
In order to give your furnace the longest, most efficient life, Vogts Heating & Air advises regular maintenance. But, even with the best care, a furnace will reach a certain age and you’ll be spending more money on repairs than you should. So, what happens if your furnace reaches this time during the Pocatello winter? There’s no need to be concerned! Our experts 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, think about how old your furnace is. If it’s 15 to 20 years old, it’s likely nearing the end of its life span. Many times, 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 working harder than it should. Furnaces lose efficiency as they get older. When this happens, you’ll notice a change in your heating costs.
Another signal 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 could 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.
You don’t have to figure this out on your own, just call Vogts Heating & Air at 208-621-0129 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 book an appointment with us online if that’s easier. We are here to help you stay warm in your home during the Pocatello winter.
