Did you struggle with your furnace last winter, suffering from breakdowns, inefficiency and high utility bills? If you’re even considering replacing your furnace before the snow flies again, there’s no time like the present. But why not just wait until winter? Consider the following reasons, and you’ll see that a summer furnace replacement is the right choice.
Late-Night Breakdown: It’s the coldest night of the year. You’ve just settled down for a long winter’s rest when suddenly – no heat. You’ve had problems with this 20-year old furnace before, and you’ve been thinking about replacing it… but 3 a.m. in the dead of winter is probably not the best of times.
Shocking Utility Bills: The only thing your furnace did efficiently last winter was suck the money out of your wallet at an alarming rate. If your utility bills are bordering on outrageous, then the chances are your furnace is not doing the job it should be. If it’s more than 10 years old, it probably doesn’t compare to today’s furnaces that can offer up to 95 percent efficiency.
Country Roads: If you live out in the middle of nowhere like some of us do, then you might want to consider how difficult it might be for your technician to get to your house for a repair or a replacement in the middle of winter. If you live in an area where plow trucks fear to tread, a summer furnace replacement makes a lot of sense. At Family Danz, we strive to help you no matter what the weather, but we don’t want you to suffer in a situation where it might take us a while to get to you.
No Downtime: Obviously when you’re having a furnace installed, your heat will not be running. And if that installation is taking place during the frostiest part of winter, your home will cool down in a hurry. If you install your furnace in the summertime, you won’t have to contend with a moment’s chilliness!
Exploration of Options: No matter what the weather or situation, Family Danz will help you explore your options and find the best furnace solution for your home and your lifestyle. That being said, choosing to install your furnace in the summer rather than when your old one breaks down in the dead of winter will offer you the luxury of time. You’ll be able to explore your options and learn about different furnace features at your leisure, so you’ll make the most informed choice.
So as you can see, summer is a great time for a new furnace installation. Family Danz Heating & Cooling is a full-service heating contractor, offering both sales and service all throughout the Albany, NY area. If you would like more information to solve any of your furnace needs, call us today at .
