With the days getting colder, you are going to start relying on your furnace more to keep you and your family comfortable. However, if your furnace does not appear to be keeping up, you may want to consider having it replaced now before you are left without a reliable heat source this winter. If your heater seems to be underperforming, but you are unsure whether you are in need of new furnace installation, here are a few signs that your furnace may need replacing.
You Can’t Seem to Get Comfortable
Your furnace is meant to keep you and your family warm throughout the cold months. If it does not appear to be doing its job properly anymore, and you keep turning your furnace higher to no avail, then it may be time to consider having it replaced.
When considering whether or not to replace your furnace, it is also important to consider how much money you have spent repairing your furnace in the last five years. If you have had it repaired multiple times, and/or repairs to your furnace have cost 1/3 of the cost to replace the appliance, then you will want to consider whether it is worth putting more money into maintaining your aging furnace, or whether it may be time to have it replaced.
Your Furnace is Old
The average lifespan of a furnace is 15 years. If your furnace is this old, you will want to consider having it replaced sooner rather than later as a furnace this old will likely start encountering issues soon, and may stop working on you suddenly. Additionally, it is likely not as efficient as it could be, so having it replaced could save you money on your energy bills.
