Generally, the only heat people are thinking about right now is the temperature outside, and how great it would be to take a dip in one of our nearby lakes.
But by taking the time now to take care of any needed repairs to or replacement of your home’s furnace or boiler, you’ll have peace of mind that it will be ready whenever you need to turn it back on this coming autumn.
One advantage of doing any heating system repairs or replacement during the summer is the convenience. Our service department has a more open schedule, meaning we’ll be able to promptly get to your home to perform any needed service.
The Johnny Prescott service technicians are skilled, trained, and experienced. They have the know-how to help your home’s heating system run at its best, so you get the most out of your investment. Our focus is always on maintenance and repairs first.
Did you notice that your furnace or boiler had problems or just sub-par performance this past winter? We can go over that during the summer, addressing any lingering issues and making any needed repairs so your heating system is operating at its maximum possible efficiency next winter.
At Johnny Prescott, we don’t believe in replacing a heating system just because it’s getting on in years. But if we discover in our tune-up or repairs that replacing your boiler or furnace may be a better option, we’ll give it to you straight. Johnny Prescott will be with you every step, from helping you find the right heating system for your home and budget to expert installation and service.
If it turns out that replacement is the way to go, doing it in the summer will have your new high-efficiency boiler or furnace installed and ready to go when cold weather arrives.
There are multiple factors to consider before replacing your home’s furnace or boiler. Here are some of them.
Repair costs. If you are facing major repairs of your heating system and the cost is more than 50% of what it would cost to replace it, replacement likely makes the most fiscal sense.
Performance. If you are getting poor or uneven heating, we’ll thoroughly go over your heating system to see what repairs can be made and/or determine it’s time to start planning for its replacement.
Heating costs. If your heating costs have risen and repairs aren’t going to make much of a dent, it may be time to begin planning to replace your furnace or boiler.
Future plans. Are you planning to retire or move in the next few years? Upgrading to a new furnace or boiler may make sense. If you’re planning to sell, a new heating system can add to your home’s resale value and enhance its appeal to potential buyers. If you are planning to retire, you’ll have better efficiency and lower energy costs, and you won’t have to worry about replacing it right after moving to a fixed income.
