While an unplanned heating emergency may let you know it’s time for a new furnace, most of the time the decision is not so clear. Age, condition, efficiency and effectiveness are all things to evaluate when wondering if it makes sense to replace a furnace. Your ClimateCare local member can help you make an evaluation based on an inspection of your current HVAC system and your own needs and lifestyle. Here are a few signs that it may be time for a heating upgrade:
- While a well maintained furnace can last 20 to 25 years, anything over 15 years old can be considered “old age;” it’s time to start budgeting for a replacement
- Gas and electric utility rates are ever-increasing. A new high efficiency furnace will help compensate.
- Frequent repairs are a sign that your furnace is wearing down
- Uneven heat throughout the house can mean the furnace is no longer efficient or effective
- Furnaces banging and making other noises or turning on and off frequently can be a sign of serious trouble
If your furnace has one or more of these signs, then it’s time to call ClimateCare. They are a locally owned business with expertise in all things furnace related and part of Canada’s largest cooperative of independent heating and cooling contractors. Licensed technicians will complete a full evaluation of your furnace and heating system and advise you on a range of options.
