When It May Be Time for Furnace Replacement
Is your furnace having a rough time? If it's on the newer side, then repairs are typically the best option. But if your furnace is older and experiencing problems more frequently, investing in new furnace installation service may be the most cost-effective decision. Here are some of the most common situations that signal it’s time for a replacement.
The Furnace’s Age
Furnaces won’t last forever, so even the age can offer information about when it may be time to replace it. Most models last around 15 years, so think about its replacement when your current furnace starts to approach this age. A little preparation beforehand can spare you from a sudden breakdown on a cold night.
If the sheer number of repair visits has increased lately, that’s a surefire sign your furnace may not be worth keeping around. If the cost of a repair is approaching half the cost of a new system, you’re better off finding the perfect replacement furnace.
Spike in Energy Bills
Battling an ever-increasing energy bill? It could be the result of a sudden change in weather, but if you’re sticking to your usual routine without any major changes happening at home … it may just be that old and inefficient furnace. Monitor monthly bills for those unexpected spikes so you can take action and start looking for a replacement.
Weak Airflow or Hot/Cold Spots
Is your heating system costing you more than it used to? Hot or cold spots in a few places? These are a few other signs it’s time to replace your furnace. New installation is a good opportunity to check the ductwork and see if a leak is responsible for any stubborn hot or cold spots.
