How to Tell You Need a New Furnace
You probably want to be sure that you actually need a new furnace before you get the replacement process started. After all, this is a time- and cash-consuming endeavor so you wouldn’t want to choose an upgrade unless it is needed. Here are the warning signs that you are on the right track:
- Your furnace is over 10–15 years old. A furnace that is over 10 years old is one you should plan to replace in the coming years. If your furnace is nearer to 15 years old, then it is a good idea to start the process of a replacement now so you can make the most of the deals available to you, along with getting the new system before inflation affects the price.
- The system hasn’t been efficient or effective. Take some time to think back on the last time you ran your furnace. How well did it get the job done? How high did it make your energy bills? If the warmth was low while the cost was high, despite maintenance, then you likely need a new system.
- You smell something off when you turn it on. When you turn on your furnace for the first time each year, you might notice the scent of burning dust for a short period. However, if you notice other smells such as the scent of burning electrical parts or, worse, leaking gas (rotten eggs), turn the system off. These smells spell trouble and can indicate that you have a furnace that needs service.
- The system needs frequent repairs. How many repairs has your furnace needed in recent years? If it needs repairs as often as it needs a tune-up (yearly), then it means your system is worse for the wear. At this point, the money put toward repairs is better off going toward a new furnace.
