Your furnace is a huge investment, and can also come with unexpected costs if you don’t take care of it properly. Here are some signs that it might be time for you to stop paying for those repairs every month and invest in a replacement.
Furnace Life Span: Did you know the average life span of a furnace is 15-20 years? If yours is older than that, it’s definitely time to consider replacing it! If you’re not sure how old your furnace is, give us a call – we can help!
Unexpected Costs: Do you find yourself making frequent unexpected repair payments because of your furnace? It might be time to think about buying a new one. In the end, it could be saving you bundles!
Utility Bills: If you’ve compared your heating bills with your neighbors and found yours are significantly more expensive, it could be a sign that your furnace needs to be replaced.
What’s That Noise: Older furnaces sometimes make some odd noises as they get near the end of their lifespan. Have you heard any banging, rattling, popping or squealing noises coming from your furnace? If this is the case, this is a sign that your furnace may need to be replaced.
Air Quality: Is there too much dust in your home? Old furnaces can cause your home to accumulate more dust than it normally should. If you’ve noticed your family suffers from allergies a lot more during the winter, it might be time to replace your furnace.
