At this point in the year, you’re no doubt moving on from your heating system and diverting your attention back to your air conditioner. Just because you’re done with your heater for the season, however, does not mean that you should erase it from your mind for the next few months. In fact, you may be doing yourself a major disservice if that’s the path you choose, particularly if you weren’t all that enthused about your furnace for any reason this past winter.
The end of the heating season is a perfectly good time to schedule furnace repair in Durham, NC, and an even better one to schedule your furnace replacement. We know, we know—you’ve got plenty of time. However, that can lead to some poor decision making and some issues that you may not have thought of. We strongly suggest that you take care of the problem now, when you don’t need your heater. Read on to learn more about how this benefits you.
Was Your Heater Reliable This Past Winter?
No, you do not have to replace your home heating system just because it ran into an operating problem here and there. If your heater is well-maintained and you find yourself scheduling frequent furnace repairs, though, then it may make more sense to just invest in a new system. It protects your comfort and it also protects your budget.
We know that a new heater is a pretty major investment, but remember that furnace repairs can also add up pretty quickly over time. Plus, a heater that isn’t all that reliable cannot really keep you comfortable with, well, the reliability that you deserve. Just because we live in a pretty warm climate doesn’t mean that you don’t need and deserve dependable heating!
Is Your Heater Efficient Enough?
Well, what’s efficient enough? That’s a fairly personal question. Any modern heater is really going to be decently efficient. If you find that you’re paying more than you’re comfortable with to heat your home, though, there could be a few factors at play. Your furnace may just be very old and tired, and that can result in reduced efficiency. Or, you may have invested in a fairly low-efficiency at the time of purchase to save money.
Whatever the case, upgrading your system to a more efficient one does make sense. It’s up to you if the time is right. We know it seems counterintuitive to replace a heater that is still working decently, but a decent performance may not be worth the excessively high cost.
