After a nice summer, the last thing on our minds is heating our house for the imminent winter months. But when we go to switch on the furnace for the first time in months, we begin to freak out – will it fire up OK and will it run like a dream all season long? Will it fail on the coldest day of the year? Seeking for the indications of a needed furnace replacement early and often can avoid these concerns and keep you at ease all winter, and all year, long.
How do you know if it’s time to purchase a new furnace? How do you know if replacement is necessary and not just a repair? There are various personal and professional factors that help decide this, but Air Max HVAC Inc has a few tips in determining if the time has come to depart from your old furnace.
The normal life of a furnace lasts between 12-17 years. After 15 years, furnaces have a bigger risk of dying so if your furnace is reaching that age, it might be time to start researching some new furnaces with Air Max HVAC Inc.
High Energy Bills
Furnaces may not run efficiently as they get more usage out of them, and if they aren’t checked out regularly, they may also lose effectiveness.
Systems must be enclosed properly to evade leaks and ensure they are consistent in heating your home. If your ductwork isn’t enclosed suitably or the furnace is past repair, a new furnace with new ductwork will really keep your home cozy.
Indoor Air Quality
Older ductwork can be stuffed with dust, mold, or mildew after years of use. If you see that the quality of your indoor air is bad or that members of your family are dealing with allergens, furnace replacement might be needed.
