Warming Up: How Do I Know When to Replace a Furnace?

The cold weather is here at last. Is it time for you to replace your furnace?

If you’ve never had to have a furnace replacement before, it’s hard to know the signs that you should look for. How do you know when to replace a furnace instead of repairing it? We’re here to talk about it. Keep reading for a few key signs that it’s time for you to get a brand-new furnace.

Your Furnace Needs Constant Repairs

The first and most obvious sign that you need a new furnace (instead of just fixing the old one), is that it needs frequent repairs. You can only repair a furnace so many times before it just makes sense to get a new one.  Many furnace issues are fixable, but as your furnace gets older, those problems are going to pile up. At that point, it’s a better financial decision to replace it than to have constant furnace maintenance.

Your Home Isn't Heating Evenly

Have you noticed any cold spots in your home? It might be because your furnace is no longer in good condition. Even if most of your rooms feel comfortable, a furnace that’s on the fritz can have trouble heating the entire house. Areas that are too far away from vents, even if they’re in the center of the home, can stay chilly.  If this is the case, have a professional come to inspect and repair your furnace. They may recommend a replacement.

Your Utility Bills Are High

So, what if your home still feels comfortable, but your utility bills are rising? It’s not because you’re turning the heat up higher. It might be because of your furnace. As furnaces get older, they get less efficient. A good HVAC repair service can boost your furnace’s efficiency somewhat, but it won’t be as effective as buying a new one. You’ll save money on your energy bill by spending money on a new furnace.

Your Furnace is Old

How old is your furnace? If you’re a relatively new homeowner, you may have never thought about the age of your furnace, but if it’s too old, it’s time for a replacement. Furnaces can stay in good condition for a bit over a decade, but once your furnace is around fifteen years old, it’s nearing the end of its lifespan. You can still make repairs, but they won’t be as long-lasting, and they’ll be more expensive. Newer units are more efficient by default, so while it may seem too costly to replace an old furnace that still works, you may save money in the long run. 

That's When To Replace Your Furnace

It’s hard to know when to replace a furnace in your home. If you start noticing these signs, it’s time for you to hire a professional for an inspection. They may recommend a furnace replacement if repairs are no longer an option.  Are you looking for HVAC professionals in Calgary for all your furnace needs?
