Why You Should Consider a Furnace Replacement
January 21st, 2021 by Emily Mixter
As the warmth of summer fades away, homeowners are getting prepared for those long winter nights. If you’ve been using that same old furnace for decades, it’s likely time to consider an upgrade. You don’t want to wait until the chill of a cold winter’s night to discover that your furnace has decided to call it quits for good.
Fall System Check
Taking proper care of your furnace starts with getting it evaluated in the fall months. A trained HVAC professional will assess your system and identify any issues that may occur in the near future. Any skilled professional will be able to tell you when it’s time to think about purchasing a new furnace for your home heating system. It’s best to listen to the professional as they can help you to avoid being stuck without heat in the dead of winter.
Reasons To Consider Early Replacement
Don’t be one of those homeowners who wait until their furnace stops working until they replace it. This runs into a lot of problems. The most obvious is that you and your family will be without heat during the bitter cold of winter. And, once it goes, you’ll still have to pay for a replacement. The cost will likely be more when you have to call an HVAC professional to do an emergency furnace installation.
Instead, take the advice of your HVAC pro and consider a replacement early on. This will give you more time to research energy-efficient options and choose one that matches your budget and needs. You’ll feel much better about having a new furnace installed on your own timeframe than being at the mercy of the cold winter weather.
Common Warning Signs That It’s Time To Replace Your System
There are many early warning signs that it’s time to replace your furnace with a better one. The first is if your current furnace is emitting carbon monoxide. This is a fatal gas that could severely harm or even kill your family. If your carbon monoxide detectors are going off, it’s time to replace your furnace.
If your existing furnace is over 15 years old, it’s nearing the end of its lifespan. It’s generally time to start looking for a newer model. The last warning sign that we’re going to point out is the repair cost. If your existing system is going to cost over half of the price of a replacement system, it’s time to bite the bullet and buy a new system.
