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 will provide a better outcome than the discomfort and potential home damages our Portland customers face if they have a breakdown.
In order to give your furnace the longest, most efficient life, Three Rivers Heating & Cooling recommends routine maintenance. Despite providing your heating system with lots of attention, a furnace will reach a certain age and won’t be worth repairing. So, what happens if your furnace reaches this time during the Portland winter? There’s no need to be concerned! Our experts will be here to take care of you, and make sure your family’s home comfort is met.
How can you determine if you are ready for a new furnace? First, review how old your furnace is. If it’s 15 to 20 years old, it’s possibly nearing the end of its life span. In most cases, it doesn’t make sense to have the extra expenses to perform repairs.
Next, check your utility bills. 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 signal 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 best 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.
If you have questions on whether it’s time to replace your furnace, just call Three Rivers Heating & Cooling at 503-213-4433 and our team will be happy to take a look and discuss 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 easiest for you. We are here to make sure you stay nice and cozy in your home during the Portland winter.
