If you are thinking about replacing your furnace in Chesterfield, MO, now is the time to start really thinking about it. It is not actually in your best interest to wait until you really need it before doing so.
When you do decide to replace your furnace, there is still a lot more to consider. Gas or electric? Make and model? Your budget? One thing that you don’t have to spend too much time on is wondering which contractor to hire for the job, though. Why not? Because you are reading this, and that means that you’ve already found the contractor that you know you can trust to do the job right! Call today!
First of All: Why Stick with a Furnace?
Chances are that you use a whole-house air conditioning system to cool your home, probably a heat pump or a split central air conditioner. If so, and if you are replacing an existing furnace, then moving forward with a new furnace really does make the most sense. Installing something like a boiler is probably not something that would cross your mind.
Sure, you could opt for ductless mini splits, instead, but you’ve already got the ductwork in place, right? Replacing your furnace with a new one means that you can probably integrate it into the existing system or, at least, you’ll require very little revamping of the ductwork to accommodate the new furnace. Plus, you’re already aware of just how efficient and effective the furnace is, right? So yeah—more of that, please!
So When Is It Replacement Time?
No reason to replace yet, right? It’s not as if the furnace is broken down entirely, beyond the point of repairs, right?
If you are serious about living comfortably and without interruption, then you are definitely going to want to schedule your furnace replacement sooner rather than later.
Is there a set timeframe for this? No, of course not. You don’t have to replace a furnace just because it is X years old. However, waiting for the system to break down entirely is definitely not advisable.
You want to start thinking about replacing your heater if:
- Repair needs are more and more frequent.
- Energy costs are on the rise, in spite of diligent maintenance.
- Heating output just is not what it used to be!
There are plenty of instances in which any single problem can be resolved by a trained professional, naturally. Keeping factors such as system age, your budget, and your overall satisfaction in mind will help you along in the decision-making process. And, if you have any questions, we’re here to help!
