Fall is here, and cooler temperatures are right around the corner. Is your furnace ready to handle the frigid cold of winter? Don’t wait until it is below freezing to find out. Your furnace might be on its last leg, and it could be time for an upgrade. The heating and cooling experts at CRNE’s Environmental Control want you to be aware of these signs that it is time to replace your heating system.
Your Furnace Is Ancient
Heating units should be replaced after 10-15 years. If yours is nearing that 15-year age mark, you probably should replace it before it stops working altogether and you’re left in a freezing house this winter.
Your Ducts Are Dated
Is your home increasingly dusty? Do you have trouble keeping some rooms warm and some cool? Leaky ductwork could be the cause of these troubles. A professional can come and assess whether or not you need to replace the ductwork or possibly just your furnace unit.
Your Bill Is Getting Higher
Increasingly high heating costs is one major sign that your furnace needs replaced. Energy bills skyrocket when the furnace is not working efficiently, and it might need more than just a tune-up.
You Know Your HVAC Technician’s Number by Heart
If you’re calling a technician for HVAC service so often that you have become close friends, it might be time to replace. The costs of repairs are going to add up, and you’ll end up saving money in the long run if you get a new unit.
You’re Hearing Strange Sounds
Noisy units are not usually units that are working well. It might be time for an upgrade if your unit is making more and more noise.
