If your furnace huffed and puffed its way to the finish line this past winter and you're not sure it's up to the challenges of another heating season, right now is an excellent time to replace it. Acting early is a great way to beat the rush that will come when fall rolls around.When it comes to furnaces, here are some telltale signs that it's time to think about getting a new one:
If your furnace is 15 years old or older, it's probably not running as efficiently as it once did, no matter how well you've maintained it. Replacing furnaces that are this old is strongly recommended.
Count up the number of times you've had to have your furnace serviced in the past two or three years. If it totals an average of once a year or more, you're probably spending as much on repairs as you would on a replacement.
This past winter, did you notice that certain rooms in your home were too hot, or that others weren't hot enough? Uneven heating patterns are a sign that it may be time for a new furnace.
Was the air in your home too dry this past winter? If so, it could be a sign that your aging equipment isn't operating at peak efficiency and should be replaced.
Did your furnace make a lot of clanging, banging and whirring noises when it was last used? These types of sounds are strong indicators of impending mechanical breakdowns.
The furnaces being manufactured today operate with far better efficiency than those that were made even ten years ago, so upgrading makes even more sense when considered from a home energy savings standpoint.At Air Assurance, we offer a wide range of furnaces to customers in all budget ranges, and we're happy to help you make a choice that's right for the size and layout of your home.
