Your furnace is a key part of your household, and if properly maintained can give you years of reliable service. Sooner or later, however, every appliance needs to be replaced, and you will eventually face the prospect of removing your old furnace and putting in a new one. In Helotes TX, heating replacement services can go over your options with you, taking into account our local Texas conditions as well as the particulars of your house. Before you can call a technician, however, you need to make the tough decision to retire your old furnace, and it helps to know when that might be.
Here are a few signs your furnace needs to be replaced.
- Higher bills. Slowly creeping bills mean that the wear and tear on your system is increasing and that parts are wearing out. This includes not only repair bills – which might become too frequent for you to want to deal with – but also monthly energy bills, which go up as the system has to work harder and harder. If you find yourself facing large monthly bills, even though you’re not using the furnace any more than normal, you may be facing the prospect of a replacement.
- Inadequate functioning. Going hand-in-hand with higher costs is the fact that your furnace just isn’t doing the job. It may be breaking down quite often, it may be struggling to move air sufficiently, or it may not be generating the level of warmth that you need. In some cases, the issue can be fixed by replacing a single part, but if it persists, the replacement may be in order.
- The furnace is old. This isn’t a make-or-break proposition all on its own, and some furnaces can last for quite a while before needing replacing. But if an older furnace starts to suffer from some of the symptoms listed above – particularly one that is ten years old or more – it may be a sign that your furnace needs to be replaced.
