How Do You Know When You Need a New Furnace?
TechXpert verified by Ken Kontra
If the cost to repair your furnace is half the price of a new one, it’s time to replace it. Your furnace should be replaced once you notice a large rise in your energy bills, uneven heating, low air quality, or a consistent need for repairs. The longer you wait, the more damage your furnace can cause to other appliances in your home.
Your Furnace Can’t Handle the Heat
Just because your furnace provides you with heat, doesn’t mean it can always handle it. You should consider replacing your furnace when:
Your energy bills are through the roof
The rooms in your house are heating unevenly
Your furnace is cycling on and off more frequently
Your furnace is unusually noisy or rattles
Your furnace starts putting out dust, dirt, or rust particles
Your furnace has rust in or around it
You see any signs of cracks or corrosion
If you detect any of these issues with your furnace, it’s smart to replace it as soon as possible to avoid future problems that affect your quality of life at home.
Hire the Heat
Replacing and installing a new furnace isn’t an easy task. When it’s time to say goodbye to your furnace, calling a team of HVAC technicians is your best bet to get things back on track. An HVAC professional will make sure your furnace is installed properly and safely.
