As winter settles in Eastwood, Kentucky, it’s important that your furnace is working properly. If you find that your furnace isn’t functioning as well as in past years, it might be time to replace your old furnace with a modern and energy-efficient one. Let’s explore three reasons why you may want to replace your furnace.
Age of Your Furnace
Your furnace has worked faithfully for years but suddenly it’s not heating your home sufficiently. Furnaces generally last between 15 and 20 years if properly maintained. Check the manufacturer date of your furnace. If it’s over the life expectancy, it’s best to replace it. In addition, once the warranty on your older furnace has expired, consider replacing it to prevent expensive repair bills.
Increased Energy Bills
As your furnace system ages, parts begin to wear out. When the system isn’t working in top condition, the furnace has to struggle to deliver heat to your home. Sit down and look at your past heating bills. Check if there’s a significant increase over the years. A new energy-efficient heater will not only keep your home more consistently warm but will also use less energy. This will save you money on heating bills.
Frequent Furnace Repairs
Increased and frequent repair bills are a good indicator that it’s time to replace your furnace. If you’re constantly having to call us for furnace repairs, it’s more cost-effective to replace it with a new model than to keep patching up your old one. Modern furnaces come with advanced technology and energy-efficient systems to help you save money over time. Keep in mind that even with a new furnace, you’ll want to invest in a maintenance agreement with us to ensure that your furnace has regular and timely servicing. This will help keep it running for years to come.
