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 will provide a better outcome than the discomfort and potential home damages our the Bay Area customers face if they have a breakdown.
In order to give your furnace the longest, most efficient life, Contra Costa Heating & AC advises annual preventive maintenance. Despite providing your heating system with lots of attention, 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 the Bay Area 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 how long you have had your current system. If it’s 15 to 20 years old, it’s probably nearing the end of its life span. In most cases, 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 having a hard time keeping up. Furnaces lose efficiency as they get older. When this happens, you’ll see the evidence on your heating bills.
Another signal that it may be time to replace your furnace is if you’ve had to call for multiple repairs. 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.
You don’t have to figure this out on your own, just call Contra Costa Heating & AC at 510-343-9841 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 more convenient. We are here to make sure you stay comfortable in your home during the the Bay Area winter.
