HVAC Expert installing a furnace

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 will provide a better outcome than the discomfort and potential home damages our Greater Richmond customers face if the furnace isn’t working functioning properly.

In order to give your furnace the longest, most efficient life, Herman Allen Plumbing, Heating & Cooling suggests annual preventive maintenance. Even if you give your furnace optimal attention, a furnace will reach a certain age and you’ll be spending more money on repairs than you should. So, what happens if your furnace reaches this time during the Greater Richmond winter? Don’t worry! Our professionals will be here to take care of you, making your home comfort our focus.

How can you determine if you are ready for a new furnace? First, consider how old your furnace is. 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 have the extra expenses to perform repairs.

Next, take a look at your energy 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 notice a change in your heating costs.

Another signal that it may be time to replace your furnace is if you’ve had it repaired a number of times. Further repairs may not be the best way to go. It could be in your best interest to replace your furnace with a new, more energy-efficient model. Investing in a newer model will likely save you money in the long run.

You don’t have to figure this out on your own, just call Herman Allen Plumbing, Heating & Cooling at 804-302-6657 and our team will be happy to take a look and review all of your options—whether that includes a replacement furnace or furnace repair. You can even arrange an appointment with us online if that’s easiest for you. We are here to ensure you stay warm in your home during the Greater Richmond winter.
