Scotch Plains Heating Company

Like any great Scotch Plains heating company, we seek to offer the best information about your furnace and when you should or should not replace (when necessary) or repair (regularly).  One of the most important things to consider when looking at furnace 101 is how old your furnace is.  If it is an older model and not very efficient, it will probably need some type of repair or maintenance.  This should be pretty painless and pretty inexpensive, but make sure you are working with a top quality heating company before investing too much trust in a less-than “professional”.

There are other times, however, when the repairs could cost more in the long run than just replacing the whole furnace.  At this point, it would be important to consider if they should repair or replace.  Let’s take a look. . .

Scotch Plains Heating Company – Furnace 101

In other words, a cost-benefit analysis of your furnace and things to consider:

1.  How old is your furnace unit?

If your heating unit or furnace is more than ten years old, it is probably going to cost quite a bit of money in lack of efficiency.  Because new furnaces are a lot more efficient in the long run, you can probably save even up to twenty percent in heating costs just by replacing your old furnace with a newer model.

2.  How consistent are your utility bills?

If your heating bill is consistently increasing, this is a sign that your furnace may need some repairs or adjustments.  Though the seasons change and the amount of heating and cooling that your home requires will change in different ways, it is important to be sure that your utility bills are not consistently increasing. This is a sure sign that your furnace is probably on it’s last legs.  At this point, you will want to check the cost of any additional repairs when deciding if you should keep or replace your furnace.

3.  Does your furnace evenly heat your home?

If your furnace does not evenly heat your home, there is a chance that you have poor insulation, dirty duct work, or a furnace in need of repairs or replacement.  Check to be sure that the first two are not the case, then go ahead and make an appointment for a professional to check with your furnace to see if it needs to be repaired or replaced.

After considering the above three options, you may still want to consult a professional to know if you should just continue to maintain and repair your furnace or if it’s time for a new one altogether.  Try to keep your service records with your furnace consistently so you are aware of how often your furnace has been maintained and any previous issues that have come up.  If you’re interested in scheduling routine maintenance, a furnace service repair, or looking into getting a new furnace altogether, call your trusty local heating and cooling company today!

Good Tidings is one of the most professional companies I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Always prompt, clean and have done outstanding work on multiple AC installs, as well as, general plumbing. My most recent experience was with Matt and Joel who installed a new AC unit in our home. Excellent techs and great product. In addition Brian performed work on our furnace with great results. We called for service and they were there the same day. Outstanding company that I would recommend to anyone!

Brian was great with assessing the problem, fixing it and then cleaning up. I had 2 separate clogs (main in basement and 2nd floor bathtub) that he was able to fix. Overall, services were priced on the higher side, but money well spent for the A+ service provided. Recommended.

We had excellent service from Good Tidings! Our air conditioner broke during the hottest week of the year. We had another company come in, charge us, and tell us nothing was wrong but it was still broken. Thankfully, Good Tidings came in and within an hour was able to tell us exactly what was wrong and fix our air conditioner! They did an excellent job explaining everything and talking us through reasonable pricing options. We'll definitely be using them again!

Excellent same day air conditioner service in the middle of a heat wave! They found an electrician to help with the problem who was also reasonably priced and had the air on by the end of the night! Steven stayed till 8 pm to b sure the air was fixed and running correctly
