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 sounds quite a bit better than the discomfort and potential home damages our Cedar Rapids customers face if they have a breakdown.

In order to give your furnace the longest, most efficient life, Ilten's Incorporated recommends regular maintenance. But, even with the best care, 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 Cedar Rapids 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.

What factors will help you determine if it’s time for a replacement furnace? First, think about how old your furnace is. If it’s 15 to 20 years old, it’s likely nearing the end of its life span. In most cases, 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 see the evidence on your heating 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 ideal way to go. It could be in your best interest to replace your furnace with a new, more energy-efficient model. Investing in a newer model will likely save you money in the long run.

You don’t have to figure this out on your own, just call Ilten's Incorporated at 319-208-3295 and our experts will be happy to take a look and review 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 help you stay nice and cozy in your home during the Cedar Rapids winter.
