When Is it Time To Replace Your Furnace?

January 10, 2021 3:26 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

It’s best to replace your furnace before it completely breaks down. There are some signs it’s time to call an HVAC company about having a new one installed in your home.

It’s Older Than 15 Years

While furnaces can last as long as 30 years, once they’re older than 15 years, it’s a good idea to think about replacing them. Furnaces lose efficiency over time, so you can save money on your energy bills by replacing an old one.

Frequent Repairs

If you have to get your furnace frequently repaired, that’s a sign that you’re better off replacing it. The cost of getting repairs can quickly exceed the cost of having your furnace replaced. If the cost of any repair is more than half what it would cost to replace the furnace, that’s a major sign you’re better off replacing it.

Temperature Fluctuations Across Your Home

When furnaces get old, they’re often no longer capable of evenly heating your home. Some rooms in your home can be too warm while other ones are too cold. This can be especially true between the upper and lower floors of your home.

Strange Noises

There are several noises that indicate your furnace is on its last legs. These include popping, screeching, clicking, rattling and humming. A booming noise is urgent as it indicates there’s a gas emission problem in your furnace, which can be dangerous.

High Energy Bills

If your energy bills have spiked for seemingly no reason, the culprit is likely to be your furnace. Your furnace is no longer operating efficiently and so it should be replaced.
