Grand Rapids, MI Furnace Replacement Services

There’s nothing better than coming home to a warm house on a cold winter’s day, thanks to a properly functioning furnace. But if your furnace is aging and struggling to keep your entire house warm – or frequently breaking down – it may be time to consider upgrading to a new, high-efficiency furnace.

Installing a new furnace can provide your home with more even heating and save on your monthly energy bills. If you’re in the market for a new furnace, contact the heating and cooling professionals at A-1 Mechanical. We’ve proudly served the Grand Rapids area since 2006, and we hope you consider us as your all-in-one HVAC provider.



Is My Furnace Going Out?

As a homeowner, it’s important to recognize the signs that your furnace is beginning to fail. Waiting too long to have the furnace inspected can lead to a complete breakdown on one of the coldest days of the year. A furnace breakdown can cause severe comfort issues or even force your family to stay in a hotel until a new furnace is installed.

Keep reading to learn some of the common signs that your furnace might be on its last legs.

Old Age

A properly maintained furnace typically lasts about 15 to 20 years, although several factors can determine its lifespan. If your furnace is getting up there in age and not performing as well as it once did, we recommend being proactive and replacing it before a complete breakdown occurs.

Uneven Heating

If your furnace is struggling to provide even heating to all areas of the home, it might be a sign that it’s underperforming due to age and may need to be replaced. Although other factors such as duct leaks and a clogged air filter can cause uneven heating, you should contact a reputable HVAC company to take a closer look, especially if your system is over 15 years old.

Higher Energy Costs

As with any appliance, furnaces, too, are less efficient the older they become. Due to increased wear and tear on parts, aging furnaces typically run more frequently to properly heat your home to the desired temperature. If you’re noticing higher energy bills, it may be time to consider furnace replacement services.

Strange Smells

Any type of musty odor or a strange smell coming from your furnace should be cause for concern. Although smelling a dusty odor when you turn the unit on for the first time for the season is quite normal, the smell of sulfur, rotten eggs, or burning is not. Contact an HVAC technician immediately to inspect the unit.



Benefits of a New Furnace

Although purchasing a new heater can be a significant financial investment, we believe there are so many more benefits that make it worthwhile. They include:

Peace of Mind for Your Family

No one wants to deal with unexpected repair costs. With a new system installed, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that you likely won’t have to deal with repair issues and their associated costs for many years. And if something does break down unexpectedly, your unit’s manufacturer’s warranty should pay for it.

Increased Energy Efficiency

As Grand Rapids homeowners, we use our furnaces a lot in the winter, which can add up to some pretty high energy bills. Older furnaces with years of wear and tear only compound the issue. Hiring A-1 Mechanical to install a new Carrier furnace will help keep your operating costs low to reduce those expensive monthly energy bills.

Higher Quality Heating

After having a new furnace installed, you’ll immediately notice a higher level of comfort in your home. New furnaces are better at evenly distributing air throughout a home and maintaining a constant temperature.

I called after hours and spoke to a machine, but they called me back bright and early the next day to set up an appointment. The technician who came out to my home was friendly and worked quickly, and cautioned me about the need for more frequent servicing without giving me a “hard sell” or being pushy.
