Our experts at realize that winter may not be the ideal time to get a new furnace.

To help make sure your furnace is running properly and efficiently, Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc suggests routine 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 you find yourself in need of a new furance during the Carpentersville 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.
What factors will help you determine if it’s time for a replacement furnace? First, review the age of your furnace. If it’s 15 to 20 years old, it’s likely nearing the end of its life span. Oftentimes, it doesn’t make sense to have the extra expenses to perform repairs.
Next, review your energy costs. If they seem higher this season over previous years, your furnace may be working harder than it should. Furnaces lose efficiency over time. 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. Putting your money towards a newer model rather than another repair could help you save money over the long term.
