We know that winter isn’t the preferred season for furnace installation. We also know that installing a new furnace in the winter is a lot better than the discomfort and potential home damages our Moline customers face if they have a breakdown.
To provide your furnace with a long, efficient life span, J.L. Brady Company LLC recommends annual preventive 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 you find yourself in need of a new furance during the Moline winter? Don’t panic! Our qualified technicians will be here to take care of you, making your home comfort our focus.
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 possibly nearing the end of its life span. Oftentimes, it doesn’t make sense to put money into repairing a furnace that’s so old.
Next, take a look at your energy bills. If they seem higher this season over previous years, your furnace may be struggling. Furnaces lose efficiency after awhile. When this happens, you’ll definitely see an impact on your utility 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 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.
If you’re unsure if it’s time for a new furnace installation, just call J.L. Brady Company LLC at 309-517-7511 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 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 Moline winter.
