Furnace Replacement: Signs You Need a New Furnace
As surprising as it may seem, winter is almost upon us once again; and this means that you will need to take a few steps to ensure that your home is ready to keep your family comfortable throughout the cold months. One key factor in ensuring this comfort is making sure that your furnace is in good condition. If you have been struggling along with a worn out furnace, you may want to consider furnace replacement in the coming weeks. Yet, how will you know when your furnace needs replacing? Here are a few of the signs you can look out for that indicate that your furnace needs replacing.
Your Furnace Doesn’t Keep You Comfortable
One of the easiest ways to determine that your furnace needs replacing is simply to consider how you felt the last time you had to run it. Were you and your family warm and comfortable? If you had to constantly turn your furnace higher and were still uncomfortable, then it is likely that your heater is wearing out and can no longer keep up with the demands of your household and will need to be replaced.
Your Furnace Requires Frequent Repairs
Another sign that you should consider having your furnace replaced is if it has required multiple repairs in the last several years. As an older furnace begins to wear out, it will begin to require frequent repairs. However, not only is this a sign that your furnace is nearing the end of its life and should be replaced, but also, these repairs can quickly add up, and you will likely find it to be cheaper to have it replaced.
Your Furnace is Getting Old
Your furnace’s age can also indicate that it needs replacing. Generally, furnaces last for 15 years. If your furnace is nearing, or has surpassed, this age, you will want to have it replaced soon before it fails on you.
