How To Determine If You Need A New Furnace
Winter has finally arrived! Is your furnace struggling to keep up? If you've been worried that your heating system will not keep you comfortable this season, it may be time to consider replacement.
Not sure if you need a new furnace? Certain warning signs indicate it's time to consider replacing heating and cooling equipment:
- Age Of Your Furnace
The average life expectancy of furnaces in homes today is between 12 and 15 years, depending on how well it has been maintained. Many systems will last longer than 15 years; however, the efficiency and performance of a system of that age could be costing you more on your energy usage.
- High Utility Bills
A furnace tends lose efficiency as they age, especially if they have not been properly maintained. This will cause your gas & electric bills to go up.
- Recent Repairs
Furnaces have the most breakdowns in the last 2 years of their lives. If you've experienced frequent repairs through the years, the cost of 'putting a band-aid' on the old system could start to add up to more than the cost and benefits of a new furnace.
- Strange Noises
Old furnaces often start to make some strange noises as they get toward the end of their life. Be mindful for any 'squealing', 'popping', or 'clanking' sounds, as they could be signs of trouble.
