Signs You Need to Replace Your Furnace
Are you worried about the overall health of your furnace? If so, consider the following factors which may put your furnace in the “at-risk” category:
- Old Age: Most furnaces will work for anywhere from 10-15 years with proper maintenance and upkeep. If your furnace is 10 or more years old and already struggling to heat your home, a replacement may be a better option.
- Rising Energy Bills: If your utility bills inexplicably begin to spike and you’re not using your appliances any differently, something is absolutely wrong. Your furnace is working extra hard and failing to effectively circulate any heated air.
- Frequent Repairs: While repairs are always the first choice among homeowners, at some point, when repairs become frequent, it may not be the right option any longer. If your furnace is on the older side, compare the cost of the repair against a new unit, it could help you decide what’s right for your home.
- Undersized System: A common concern for homeowners, a furnace that is unable to heat your entire home, is a problem. While it might eventually hit your desired temperature, it’s working harder to do so, adding to your energy costs and lowering the lifespan of your unit.
Instead of opting for frequent repairs, go with new furnace installation. With a new unit installed, you can enjoy consistent temperatures and lower energy costs, which could help pay for the unit in the long run.
Choosing the Right Furnace
Consult with a licensed contractor when you’re selecting a replacement furnace. Not only is price a factor, but also you should consider the size of the system, the energy it takes to heat your home, the type of fuel used (electric or natural gas), and the average lifespan, among other factors.
At G.F. Bowman, Inc. we not only offer furnace replacement services but also we can help you with a hybrid heating system. These unique models combine the power of a furnace and the energy efficiency of a heat pump. When outdoor temperatures are low, but still reasonable, your heat pump will keep you warm, helping you save money. However, when the temperatures are extremely low, your furnace will cycle on and provide you with some much needed forced heat.
We also offer alternative heating solutions, including radiant heating, keeping you warm from your head to your toes!
