We recognize that once the cooler weather hits, you don’t want to be considering furnace installation. However, you can agree that installing a new furnace in the winter sounds quite a bit better than the discomfort and potential home damages our Rapid City customers face if their furnace stops working.
To help make sure your furnace is running properly and efficiently, Street Heating and Cooling advises 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 Rapid City winter? There’s no need to be concerned! Our professionals will be here to take care of you, putting your family’s comfort as our top priority.
How can you determine if you are ready for a new furnace? First, consider how old your furnace is. If it’s 15 to 20 years old, it’s likely nearing the end of its life span. Many times, it doesn’t make sense to have the extra expenses to perform repairs.
Next, review your energy costs. If they seem more costly this season over previous years, your furnace may be struggling. Furnaces lose efficiency after awhile. 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 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. Focusing your money on a new furnace instead of repairs could end up costing you less in the end.
If you’re unsure if it’s time for a new furnace installation, just call Street Heating and Cooling at 605-206-3915 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 schedule an appointment with us online if that’s more convenient. We are here to ensure you stay warm in your home during the Rapid City winter.
