Out with the Old, In with the New
Heating your home during the winter is a marathon, not a sprint. But when your heater just can’t keep up, it may be time to switch gears and consider a new furnace installation.
When Should I Consider a Furnace Replacement?
When your furnace has shut down altogether and is beyond repair, it’s clear that you need to replace it. But what about when your system is still working, just not as good as it once did? This may warrant replacement, too.
Ask yourself these questions when it comes to your heater:
- Is it working like it used to, or how you think it should be? Furnaces can wear down with each and every use. After a number of years, they will lose the efficiency you once enjoyed and cause your heating bills to spike.
- Is it providing adequate and reliable heat? You know your home comfort better than anyone else. If you’re constantly adjusting and readjusting the thermostat to no avail, it may be time to consider a new furnace installation that won’t play games with you.
- Is it impacting your indoor air quality? Older units don’t filter out dust, debris, and other impurities as effectively, leading to a significant decline in your home’s air quality. Schedule an indoor air quality testing service if your heating system is a source of indoor air pollution.
- Are you spending more on repairs than it’s worth? There comes a point when repairs will outweigh the cost of your current heating unit. Don’t shell out hundreds of dollars to repair an old, unreliable, and inefficient heater that could fail again next month or next year. Invest in a furnace installation that guarantees your family’s comfort for many years to come, instead!
- How old is the unit? Most furnaces have a lifespan ranging from 15 to 20 years. This is the best time to replace your unit without fear of being left in the cold.
It can cost a pretty penny to frequently contact a heating repair company. When you look at the big picture, you’ll save more in the long run by investing in a reliable, more efficient unit!
If your furnace is 15+ years old, it’s likely on its last legs. You might be better off replacing your unit ahead of time rather than running your furnace into the ground and losing heat at the worst possible time.
