We know that winter isn’t the preferred season for furnace installation. 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 Rapid City customers face if they have a breakdown.
In order to give your furnace the longest, most efficient life, Precision Mechanical suggests annual preventive maintenance. Even if you give your furnace optimal attention, a furnace will reach a certain age and you’ll be spending more money on repairs than you should. So, what happens if you find yourself in need of a new furance during the Rapid City winter? There’s no need to be concerned! Our experts will be here to take care of you, putting your family’s comfort as our top priority.
How will you know if you’re in need of a new furnace installation? First, consider the age of your furnace. If it’s 15 to 20 years old, it’s probably 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 greater 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 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.
If you’re unsure if it’s time for a new furnace installation, just call Precision Mechanical at 605-206-3766 and our experts will be happy to take a look and discuss all of your options—whether that includes a replacement furnace or furnace repair.
