Professional Furnace Installation
- How old is my heating system?
- Have I seen an increase in repair costs or had frequent breakdowns?
- How much have my utility bills changed from recent years?
5 Signs it’s Time to Replace Your Furnace
Old Age – The average life expectancy of a furnace is approximately 15 years. With proper care, they may last longer but with the many industry improvements and more energy and cost-efficient models, keeping your unit for more than 15 years is not recommended.
High Energy Bills – As a furnace ages, it loses efficiency. The system is forced to work harder and, like all things, ultimately requires more energy to carry out its job. This leads to higher utility bills for you and has a negative effect on the environment.
Frequent Repairs – As mentioned, older furnaces work harder to keep up with the heating demands of your home. In time, this can equate to more frequent breakdowns and increasingly costly repairs. If your furnace is more than 12 years it may be time to consider replacing it.
Uneven Temperatures – An old, inefficient furnace can result in some rooms being colder or warmer than others. The system works harder to circulate heat evenly throughout your home but as it begins to decline in productivity, it’s more likely to overheat some rooms (often those in closest proximity to it) and underheat others.
Extra Noisy – Knocking, rattling, humming, and squealing could all be signs that your furnace is nearing the end of its life due to cracks, leaks or other structural issues. If you hear noise coming from your HVAC closet, it’s time to have it checked on.
Expert Tips for Choosing Your New Gas Furnace
Efficiency – The higher the efficiency (AFUE), the more efficiently the furnace will run
Size Matters – Make sure furnace is sized properly to your home. If it’s too small, it won’t keep your house comfortable during extreme temperatures. If it’s too large it will cycle on and off more frequently putting more wear and tear on the system and its components.
Blower Speed – There are three types of furnaces on the market single stage, two-stage and variable speed. It is best to consult with an HVAC expert for the system that will work best for your home.
Zoned Systems – If you have a home where temperatures vary from room to room, a zoned system might be right for you.
Installation Quality – The worst mistake that you can make is to compromise installation quality for savings. A poorly installed furnace can be taxing on the system and your wallet.
