It’s Never Too Late for Furnace Installation

Installation

We know that winter isn’t the preferred season for furnace installation. However, you can agree that installing a new furnace in the winter sounds quite a bit better than the discomfort and potential home damages our West Columbia customers face if their furnace stops working.

To provide your furnace with a long, efficient life span, 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 won’t be worth repairing. So, what happens if the time comes during the West Columbia winter? Don’t worry! Our qualified technicians will be here to take care of you, putting your family’s comfort as our top priority.

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. Many times, 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 most cost-effective way to go. It could 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 803-796-9172 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 schedule an appointment with us online if that’s easier. We are here to make sure you stay nice and cozy in your home during the West Columbia winter.
