When Should You Replace Your Furnace?
Every homeowner is going to face a time when their furnace is no longer working as it should. Whether it be from old age, damage, or poor maintenance, sometimes the best option is to replace versus repair.
Knowing when the time is right for a furnace replacement can be harder than you would think. No one wants to think that if they had just done the last repair, their heater would have been fine for years. Generally, though, this is not the case. Here are some tips on when to replace your furnace.
- It no longer heats the home properly.
- Your air quality has gone downhill causing illness and allergies.
- Your unit is more than 3/4 the way through its lifespan and has frequent repairs.
- The cost to run the system has risen dramatically.
- Frequent emergency repairs.
- The system makes odd sounds, and cycles too often.
- The heater is outdated, is not eco-friendly, and has left dust and soot behind.
