How do I know it's time to replace my furnace?
There are a few questions homeowners should ask themselves to determine whether or not their heating system needs to be replaced:
How old is the furnace?
On average, a well-maintained furnace will last 15 to 20 years. If you’re unsure of the age of your heating system, look for an inspection sticker on the HVAC unit or check the serial number, as the first four digits often represent the year and week the unit was manufactured.
Does the furnace run properly?
Do you frequently need to call in a repairman to remedy HVAC problems? Over time, paying to fix recurring issues may not be worth the money when you compare the cost of repairs to the cost of a new air conditioner.
Signs of you may need to replace your heating system include:
- No Heat
- Insufficient Heat
- Noisy Heating Unit
- Heating Unit Won't Start
If you notice any of the above signs of heating malfunction, it’s best to call in a professional to determine a cause. Common heating problems include:
- Clogged Filters
- Pilot Light/Ignition Control Issues
- Faulty Thermostat
- Leaky Ducts
- Low Fuel
- Overrun Heat Pump
- Lack of Circulation
While some of these problems can be resolved rather quickly and easily, more complicated issues may require you to upgrade your home’s heating system.
