Top Signs it's Time For a New Furnace

An old and outdated furnace can cost you more money than it’s worth. Though it might seem like it can stand the test of time, all furnaces, no matter how well you take care of them, reach their end. So before you are left out in the cold, here a few warning signs that it’s time to say goodbye to the old, and hello to the new.

Sweet Sixteen

This is the most simple of all warning signs. If your furnace is around 16 years or older then it may be time for a replacement. It is best to replace your furnace while it is still working. This way you won’t be without heat, and you can make the best-planned purchase possible.

BFFs With Your Repairman

A furnace will need multiple repairs towards the end of its life. If you’ve had to replace parts on your furnace multiple times within the last two winters, it may be time for you to start looking for a replacement. Don’t wait too long to buy a replacement because a few repairs can equal the price of a brand new furnace.

It Whistles While it Works

A normal furnace will make slight noises when it turns on and off, but anything other than that is out of the ordinary. Loud noises, whistles, bangs moans, and creaks are all signs of a dying furnace. If the temperature changes after a bang or rattle than you know it’s time to move on.

Understanding your home’s heating system is important, so you know when to repair and replace it. Experiencing any of these warning signs usually means that your furnace will need to be replaced sooner rather than later.
