5 Signs You Need a Furnace Replacement

sdlindsey

At Arctic Air of Southern Utah, we know that a new furnace is a serious expense. Yet, it’s something every homeowner will need to get eventually. The signs that it may be time for a replacement could be right in front of you.

1. Noisy Operation

For much of the heating season, your furnace hums quietly in the background of your life. As the system ages, it may have to work harder to generate the heat you need. Unusually loud noise when it runs may just be a sign that it is time for a tune-up, but it may also mean that the current furnace is reaching the end of its usable life.

2. Frequent Repair Calls

The longer you wait to replace your system, the more likely that you will have to make calls for repair. Aging systems can have problems that cascade into larger issues. If you find you are calling our technicians several times a season, you will want to replace the system with one that won’t give you trouble.

3. Inconsistent Heating

An aging furnace can struggle to maintain the temperature you want in your home. If you have a zoned heating system, you may find that the furnace has trouble providing heat to the zones furthest from the unit. A newer system can give you the consistent temperatures you need throughout your home.

4. Rising Utility Bills

If the furnace is working harder to operate, it will burn more fuel. While you expect your fuel bills to rise during the colder months, you should keep track of how much fuel your system is using from year to year. An older furnace will cost you more to operate than a new, efficient system.

5. Furnace Age

If your current furnace has been in your home for 15 years or more, it’s time for a change. Heating technology gets better with each new season. You will be amazed at the improvement in size, noise, and efficiency.
