5 Signs That You Need To Replace Your Furnace

You might not be concerned with your furnace’s performance for most of the year here in Hammond, but that doesn’t mean you should ignore the telltale signs that your furnace needs to be replaced. A new furnace can do wonders for your home — not to mention take some stress off your shoulders going into the winter season!

Foulks Southern Air has the best furnace installation team in the area, and we’re more than happy to give you the heater replacement experience you deserve. When is it time to call us? Here are some common signs that your furnace needs to be replaced.

Age

The number one indicator that your furnace is on its way out is its age. Furnaces seem like they’re built like tanks, but how long does a furnace last? The average furnace is only expected to last for about 10-15 years. If the unit has not been given regular maintenance and care, it will need to be replaced prematurely. If you don’t know how old your system is, take a moment to find out. If your system is older than 10, you know it’s time to consider investing in a new furnace in the coming years.

Efficiency

As furnaces age, they become less efficient. That’s just the truth. In fact, your entire HVAC system is responsible for about half of your entire home’s energy consumption! This might cause you to pay extra attention to your energy bills every month. If you notice a steady decline in efficiency because your heating system is having to use more energy to do the same job, you’re likely headed for a furnace replacement. A high-efficiency furnace’s performance can change your entire household.

Comfort

When you use your heater, you should receive consistent heating for your entire home. If you notice that your home heats much slower than it used to or that there are noticeable hot and cold rooms in your home, take it seriously. While the source may be air duct leaks or even thermostat repairs, a professional will be able to determine if the true cause is a deteriorating furnace. Your heater should be a source of comfort, not stress! It might be time to upgrade your heating system.

Indoor Air Quality

Did you know that your heating system plays a huge role in your indoor air quality? As your furnace ages, you’re more likely to see the air filters become less efficient as well. The air filtration that happens inside the HVAC system is a huge line of defense against dust, dirt and other air contaminants. If you notice your house is dustier or members of your family are experiencing more consistent allergies indoors, it could be caused by your failing heater.

Frequent Repairs & Breakdowns

The older your furnace gets, the more likely it is to experience repairs and breakdowns. Each of the components that allow the system to operate is at risk for wear and tear over time. While mall replacements and repairs over the course of the system’s life are worth it, there comes a time when continued repairs on a deteriorating system might not be cost-effective. Make sure you weigh the expense of repairing a failing unit against the investment in a system that will run smoother.

The HVAC System stopped when my Generator quit. When restarting the generator, the AC did not restart. Manuel came out, checked the entire system & got it working in 20 minutes. He was brilliant, professional & very courteous. I’ve use this company for over 25 years & have always been completely satisfied with their service.
