Its Never Too Late for Furnace Installation

Our experts at realize that winter may not be the ideal time to get a new furnace. However, you can agree that installing a new furnace in the winter is a lot better than the discomfort and potential home damages our West Columbia customers face if they have a breakdown.

In order to give your furnace the longest, most efficient life, Tri City Fuel & Heating Co., Inc. advises regular maintenance. Despite providing your heating system with lots of attention, a furnace will reach a certain age and it won’t be cost-effective to perform repairs. So, what happens if your furnace reaches this time during the West Columbia winter? There’s no need to be concerned! Our qualified technicians will be here to take care of you, making your home comfort our focus.

What factors will help you determine if it’s time for a replacement furnace? First, review how long you have had your current system. If it’s 15 to 20 years old, it’s probably nearing the end of its life span. In most cases, it doesn’t make sense to spend the additional money to repair a furnace that is older.

Next, review your energy costs. If they seem higher this season over previous years, your furnace may be having a hard time keeping up. Furnaces lose efficiency over time. 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 to schedule several repairs. 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. 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 Tri City Fuel & Heating Co., Inc. at 803-265-4208 and we’ll be happy to take a look and discuss all of your options—whether that includes a replacement furnace or furnace repair.
