We recognize that once the cooler weather hits, you don’t want to be considering furnace installation. But you can likely concur that installing a new furnace in the winter will provide a better outcome than the discomfort and potential home damages our St. Louis customers face if their furnace stops working.
In order to give your furnace the longest, most efficient life, Morgner Inc. Air Conditioning & Heating advises annual preventive maintenance. Despite providing your heating system with lots of attention, a furnace will reach a certain age and you’ll be spending more money on repairs than you should. So, what happens if you find yourself in need of a new furance during the St. Louis winter? Don’t panic! Our qualified technicians will be here to take care of you, and make sure your family’s home comfort is met.
What factors will help you determine if it’s time for a replacement furnace? First, review how old your furnace is. If it’s 15 to 20 years old, it’s possibly nearing the end of its life span. Many times, it doesn’t make sense to put money into repairing a furnace that’s so old.
Next, review your energy costs. If they seem higher this season over previous years, your furnace may be struggling. Furnaces lose efficiency over time. When this happens, you’ll see the evidence on your heating bills.
Another sign 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.

Air Conditioning & Heating at 314-262-4541 and we’ll be happy to take a look and go over all of your options—whether that includes a replacement furnace or furnace repair.
