We haven’t quite hit the cold season yet, though the rest of the country is certainly starting to feel it. Now is the time to make sure that your home is ready for when the temperature starts to drop. If your furnace isn’t up to keeping you warm and comfortable over the next several months, it’s a wise idea to replace it now. Better to make sure that you have a new furnace to rely on for winter rather than to have your current one break down in the middle of a cold month. Let’s take a look at some of the signs that you need a new furnace.
Monthly Bills Spiking
The older and more worn out a furnace gets, the less efficient it is going to be at its job. As the furnace efficiency starts to drop, the system will operate for a longer and longer period of time in order to compensate for the loss. This will, of course, translate to higher bills for you. if your monthly heating bills are spiking, and you don’t know why, it may be because you need to install a new system.
Too Many Repairs
No matter how well you take care of your furnace, there are going to be times when you need to have it repaired by HVAC professionals. The closer a furnace gets to the end of its life, though, the more likely it is going to become that it breaks down. Older furnaces require repairs much more often, and tend to be more expensive to fix due to some parts being harder to find. If you need to repair your furnace multiple times a year, then you should consider having it replaced.
