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 San Jose customers face if their furnace stops working.
To provide your furnace with a long, efficient life span, American HVAC Inc 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 the time comes during the San Jose winter? Don’t worry! Our professionals will be here to take care of you, and make sure your family’s home comfort is met.
How will you know if you’re in need of a new furnace installation? 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. Many times, it doesn’t make sense to put money into repairing a furnace that’s so old.
Next, review your energy costs. If they seem more costly this season over previous years, your furnace may be working harder than it should. Furnaces lose efficiency after awhile. 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 it repaired a number of times. Further repairs may not be the ideal way to go. It may 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 have questions on whether it’s time to replace your furnace, just call American HVAC Inc at 408-215-1018 and we’ll be happy to take a look and review 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 easier. We are here to make sure you stay warm in your home during the San Jose winter.
