It’s Never Too Late for Furnace Installation

We know that winter isn’t the preferred season for furnace installation. We also know that installing a new furnace in the winter is a lot better than the discomfort and potential home damages our Bakersfield customers face if the furnace isn’t working functioning properly.

To help make sure your furnace is running properly and efficiently, Hillcrest Air Conditioning & Plumbing recommends annual preventive maintenance. But, even with the best care, a furnace will reach a certain age and it won’t be cost-effective to perform repairs. So, what happens if you find yourself in need of a new furance during the Bakersfield winter? There’s no need to be concerned! Our experts will be here to take care of you, putting your family’s comfort as our top priority.

How can you determine if you are ready for a new furnace? First, think about the age of your furnace. If it’s 15 to 20 years old, it’s possibly nearing the end of its life span. Oftentimes, it doesn’t make sense to spend the additional money to repair a furnace that is older.

Next, check your utility bills. If they seem higher this season over previous years, your furnace may be working harder than it should. Furnaces lose efficiency after awhile. When this happens, you’ll definitely see an impact on your utility bills.

Another signal that it may be time to replace your furnace is if you’ve had to call for multiple repairs. Further repairs may not be the best way to go. It might be in your best interest to replace your furnace with a new, more energy-efficient model. Putting your money towards a newer model rather than another repair could help you save money over the long term.

If you’re unsure if it’s time for a new furnace installation, just call Hillcrest Air Conditioning & Plumbing at 661-437-3499 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 book 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 Bakersfield winter.
