Many homeowners are not sure when their furnaces need to be repaired or replaced. Furnaces typically last between 15 and 20 years, but only when properly installed and maintained. Here are some signs that might indicate that it’s time for a new furnace.
If you’re unsure, give us a call and we’ll send one of our trained and certified technicians to inspect your system and provide you with accurate and honest advice.
As a furnace ages, it wears down. Older furnaces must work harder to maintain the same temperature relative to more modern units. If you find that your furnace keeps breaking down and needing repair, it’s probably time for a replacement. In the long run, a new, efficient unit will save you money compared to continuing to pay for frequent repairs and inefficient operation.
Carbon Monoxide Leaks
Carbon monoxide is a lethal gas that humans cannot detect at low levels. If your heating system utilizes natural gas, it’s essential to ensure that all connections are airtight and that no carbon monoxide is leaking into your home atmosphere. Call us for a quick inspection and put your mind at ease, knowing that your family is safe and sound.
