It’s hard to believe that September is nearly half over, but the fact of the matter is that fall will soon arrive. At Absolute Comfort in Crystal Lake, we’re here to provide the heating and cooling services that you need, and as the colder months of the year approach, we want to make sure that your furnace is ready for winter. You may have already scheduled your annual HVAC inspection or clean and check, but if you’re thinking about replacing your furnace, then now is the time to get started!

Removing Your Old Heating System

Your furnace may have been sitting in the basement for as long as you can remember, and it may have been there when you moved into your home. Most heating systems last between 15 and 20 years, and you may have decided to replace your furnace because it’s nearing the end of its lifespan. Whatever the case may be, removing your old system takes care and precision, and our team knows how to take care of everything safely and quickly.

Your basement may have narrow stairs or a door that’s in an odd position, which can pose challenges when removing an old furnace. We’ll make sure that every piece that needs to come out is cut properly and carried safely to our truck. We’ll leave everything that needs to stay, including all the ductwork that carries warm air from the furnace throughout the house. We can also replace any ducts that need to be.

Changing Your Fuel Type

Replacing your furnace before winter also gives you the opportunity to change what fuel type you use to heat your home. If you had a natural gas furnace before, but you want to install a new electric model, then we can help you choose the appropriate option. If your home has used heating oil for the past few decades, then we can bring your HVAC into the modern age with a new, energy-efficient furnace of your choice.

If you have questions about the different types of fuel that you can use, as well as the differences in costs, then we can provide answers. We’re always working to stay up-to-date on the latest heating technologies, and we can help you decide which type of furnace is right for your home.

Installing Your New Furnace

Once your old furnace has been removed piece by piece, and you’ve chosen your new model, it’s time to get started on installation. You want everything in place before the colder days of the year arrive, and we can get started on your new heating installation right away. We always do our best not to disrupt your life too much, and we’ll work quickly to get everything where it needs to be. We’ll gladly provide you with updates as we work, and once everything is done, we’ll double check everything for proper operation. If you have any concerns after we’ve left, or something doesn’t seem right, then please contact us right away.

Fall and winter in the Crystal Lake area can be cold, and it’s essential to have the right furnace to get you through to spring. If you’ve decided that it’s time to replace your old heating system, then give us a call today. We can take care of removing your old furnace, help you choose your new model, and install it in no time at all.
