HVAC Expert installing a furnace

Its Never Too Late for Furnace Installation

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 is a lot better than the discomfort and potential home damages our Carpentersville customers face if their furnace stops working.

To help make sure your furnace is running properly and efficiently, Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc recommends annual preventive maintenance. But, even with the best care, a furnace will reach a certain age and won’t be worth repairing. So, what happens if your furnace reaches this time during the Carpentersville winter? Don’t worry! Our qualified technicians will be here to take care of you, and make sure your family’s home comfort is met.

How can you determine if you are ready for a new furnace? First, think about 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. Many times, it doesn’t make sense to put money into repairing a furnace that’s so old.

Next, review your energy costs. If they seem greater 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 indication 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 ideal 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.

If you have questions on whether it’s time to replace your furnace, just call Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc at 224-412-8308 and our team 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 ensure you stay nice and cozy in your home during the Carpentersville winter.
