The colder weather is already here, and it is only going to get colder! In Northeast Ohio, we have some of the most frigid winters around. Making sure your home is ready for that cold is essential not only for your comfort but for your wallet as well!
We get asked this question a lot, and the solution always depends on the situation. If you have an older furnace, it could likely be the reason why your home isn't as comfortable as you would like.
However, a common issue is that the home is not insulated properly. Lacking quality insulation allows the heat to escape your home as quickly as it enters through your vents. This can cause your home to stay pretty cold during the winter months, and make your energy bills skyrocket.
So, when we get a call with this question, we always assess the furnace and the insulation. If you are looking for a more affordable way to keep the heat in your home, tightening up those loose ends in the insulation can really help retain heat.
If your furnace is the issue, we will always help you get the best furnace type and size for your home.
This could also be the case, and as you may know, a new furnace isn't cheap. So, if this is your situation, we will probably recommend that you go for the insulation first. If your furnace has another winter in it, tightening up your home first is a better investment. This will allow you to save up for a new furnace next year.
We are here to help our customers stay comfortable in their homes by educating them on what we recommend and why. Of course, the choice of service is always up to you; we are just here to help you make the best decision.
