We’re in for another cold Long Island winter in a couple of months: is your home’s furnace prepared for the strain?
If you having been maintaining your furnace lately (all manufacturers and Rebmann experts suggest annual service checks), you could be at risk of a complete furnace failure this holiday season. You don’t have to wait to find out: if you call for a Rebmann service professional to check out your home’s furnace today, you can avoid this problem entirely and have peace of mind come wintertime that your furnace is heating your reliably and without any waste. Forward thinking is why we can stay ahead of the curve as a company, and it’s also how you can avoid being left in the cold this winter.
But what if our technician shows up and says that you need a replacement furnace? There are a number of reasons this would happen, including if your furnace is:
- 20 to 30 Years Old– Like any major appliances, furnaces have a lifespan, and towards the end of that lifespan they start to lose efficiency. If you haven’t been performing annual maintenance, that lifespan is significantly shorter.
- Emitting Dust and Soot– Particles being blown out of your furnace are a sign of filter failure, and if they build up too much they can become a hazard, as they catch on fire inside the machine and cause it to overheat.
- Visible Corrosion– If you see rust on the outside of the machine, there’s a good chance there’s rust on the inside too. Furnaces have a lot of internal moving parts, and if one or more of them is broken beyond repair, the furnace itself might never regain full capacity.
The technicians here at Rebmann are exclusively the most skilled and high quality in the entire industry: there’s almost nothing that they can’t repair. However, if a furnace is on its last legs, it’s actually less cost-effective to do a repair than a replacement, since the product is surely going to break again anyway. Plus, the money that you can save on your utility bills alone by getting a new furnace installed will quickly pay for the price of replacement and start saving you money that otherwise would have been lost to wasteful energy expenditure — and right now you can get a free thermostat with any furnace installation! So don’t think of the furnace replacement as a purchase but, rather, an investment in superior heating and efficiency savings for years to come. That’s a guaranteed investment! And those don’t come around often these days…
Call Rebmann today for maintenance, and see how you can improve your winter by improving your furnace this month.
