When is it time for furnace Replacement?
Much like with air conditioner replacement there are some tell tale signs you are going to need to replace your furnace soon. Below are a few signs you should consider furnace replacement.
Costly furnace repairs
If your furnace is more than 15 years old it may be nearing the end of it’s life. It is usually when you need it the most that it will break down and you are faced with an expensive repair. Not all furnace repairs are expensive but there times when enough is enough and it is just not worth investing any more money into it. Some of those costly repairs can include a cracked heat exchanger, or a bad motor. In older furnaces especially, sometimes a repair can not be done simply because the manufacturer stopped making the parts to repair your furnace. These are all situations when furnace replacement should be considered.
Energy Efficiency Problems
According to the Energy Star, our Furnace makes up 29% of our annual energy bill. When your furnace is inefficient you run the risk of that number climbing. If you have an older furnace and fear that your winter utility bills are too high, it might be time to evaluate it’s efficiency.
If you think you may need to replace your furnace now or in the near future, give us a call. We can help you evaluate the cost of keeping your current furnace vs. the savings you will see with a new one.
