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 will provide a better outcome than the discomfort and potential home damages our Cedar Rapids customers face if the furnace isn’t working functioning properly.
To provide your furnace with a long, efficient life span, Ilten's Incorporated recommends routine maintenance. But, even with the best care, a furnace will reach a certain age and won’t be worth repairing. So, what happens if you find yourself in need of a new furance during the Cedar Rapids winter? Don’t worry! Our professionals 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, 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 put money into repairing a furnace that’s so old.
Next, review your energy costs. If they seem higher 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 signal that it may be time to replace your furnace is if you’ve had to schedule several repairs. Further repairs may not be the most cost-effective way to go. It may 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 we’ll 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 arrange an appointment with us online if that’s more convenient. We are here to make sure you stay nice and cozy in your home during the Cedar Rapids winter.
