Like any other major home appliance, your furnace will eventually reach a point where it needs to be replaced. You can often see the signs building up here over time, and if you’re smart about addressing these, you can get a head start on savvy replacements.
At All Hours Plumbing, Heating & Air, we’re always on hand to help here. Our furnace and heating services include furnace replacements when necessary, or repairs if these are more cost-effective for your situation. How can you tell if this might be the final winter your furnace is good for? Here are some signs, plus some tips on getting an early start on replacements.
Here are some of the primary indicators that your furnace needs to be replaced in the near future:
In many cases, the reason homeowners avoid a furnace replacement and stick with their poorly functioning furnace is they’re afraid of the up-front cost. There’s no question a furnace replacement is costly, and the figure can seem imposing at first glance.
It’s important, though, to compare this cost to the long-term costs of continuing to use faulty equipment. Doing so will heavily raise your bills just to accomplish the same heating levels, for one. For another, new furnaces come with warranties and often free maintenance for the first few years – this saves you money in the long run. Finally, if you’re taking the time to identify these signs now, before the winter, you have the entire season to look around and find rebates or great furnace sales available.
If you’ve determined that this will be your furnace’s final winter, take the time to do some comparison shopping for various models and sizes. Check online reviews and look for any special features you’re interested in, then make a list of the models that stand out. From here, our pros can help you narrow down your list and get the perfect option.
