When a furnace ages, it loses efficiency and performance. The result is higher energy bills and reduced comfort. Age is the first consideration for most homeowners when considering whether to repair or replace a furnace. This is especially true when the need for repair has become more frequent. While some furnaces will last 20 years or longer with routine maintenance, it's typically recommended that you consider the cost of previous repairs, plus the currently needed one. An aging furnace will continue to age, and perform poorly as time goes on. It may be a wise choice to invest the money in a new, more efficient furnace, than repairing the old one.
Some signs of a failing furnace include:
A new furnace installation will reduce your heating bill. Newer furnaces are more efficient at heating, saving you money while providing for your comfort.
It’s normal for your furnace to produce some noise as it starts and stops. Rattles, banging, booms or screeching may mean there’s a serious problem in your furnace. When a furnace ages, the need for furnace repair may increase. When you consider ongoing repairs, increased energy costs, and the downtime leaving you in the cold, it’s typically preferred to install a new furnace.
When a furnace is operating like it’s supposed to, the burner flames will be blue. If you notice yellow flames, it means the furnace isn’t burning fuel very well, and can potentially be creating dangerous carbon monoxide. A furnace producing carbon monoxide is a serious safety hazard and should be replaced right away. Exposure to the poisonous gas can lead to severe injury or even death. Always have carbon monoxide detectors in your home. Change the batteries every 6 months, and test the detector.
It's normal to smell the furnace burning off dust during the first time or two that you operate the furnace for the winter season. The smell of burning wire or gas is a sign of a serious and potentially dangerous problem with your furnace. Schedule service immediately. If you smell gas, get out of the home some distance away. Once you are at a safe distance, call 911. Professionals will shut the gas supply down. Schedule an inspection and service right away.
Annual maintenance will identify any start-up problems. Our expert technicians can determine if repair or replacement is advised.
Hot and cold spots in your home indicate inconsistent regulation. It's a noticeable sign that the furnace is unable to provide the heat your home needs. When previously comfortable rooms are too cold, there is a problem. That said, it's possible there is an air leak in the ducts. You can check the ducts for damage, separation, or loss of sealing. You can also schedule a professional inspection.
Replacing the furnace and air conditioner jointly may be more economical. In addition, your savings on energy costs will be year round.
