As much as we’d like them to, furnaces don’t last forever – especially older models that are a decade or more past their prime. But if your heater needs to be replaced, can you get away with waiting until next year? Moreover – should you? Read on to learn more about how you’ll know when the right time is to get your Staten Island furnace replaced.
The number one reason folks cite for wanting to put off replacing their furnace is, of course, the cost. After all, upgrading your heater is an investment. The truth is, though, that keeping your old, outdated heater around longer could just end up costing you more money. Newer model furnaces are so much more efficient and can save you lots of money on your energy bills. Switching to a new, highly efficient heating system could reduce your annual heating costs by 30% or more.
Many of today’s furnaces, such as those made by Amana, use variable-speed fans and heating elements to provide superior, economic comfort—no matter how mild or cold the weather is outside. Furnaces today are more efficient than ever and are designed to operate quietly while still distributing warmth evenly throughout your home. There’s no reason to wait to enjoy comfort year-round.
If you know you’ll need your furnace replaced soon, it makes sense to do it now, rather than wait until January. Being aware that your heating system needs to be upgraded is actually a big benefit. Ideally, if you get on your expert technician’s schedule now, you won’t have to risk a breakdown in the dead of winter when everyone else’s heaters are breaking, too.
Our goal is always to help you avoid a breakdown, and that’s why we suggest moving forward with your furnace replacement as soon as possible if you think you’ll need one in the coming months. But, if worse comes to worst, it’s better to be without a working furnace in early fall than in mid-winter. Should you need to order a part or get on your expert technician’s busy schedule, at least you won’t have to worry about keeping your family safe and warm or bearing the extra cost of a rush installation.
The bottom line: Jumpstart your savings and comfort by taking care of updating your furnace sooner rather than later. If you have an older boiler or furnace, we encourage you to contact the experts at Rucci Oil about how a new, high-efficiency model will help you save on energy costs, make your home more comfortable, help protect the environment, and more. We will also help determine which boiler or furnace model best suits your home, your family, and your bank account.
