Now that the days are getting colder, it’s time to start thinking about heating your home for the cool nights ahead. When was the last time you took a look at your heating system? You might be due for a replacement. Here are a few signs you’ll want to look out for this year.
When Should You Replace Your Furnace?
- Your Heating System is more than 10-15 years old. Your heating system is more likely to break down after 10-15 years – leading to high repair bills. Newer models are also more energy efficient. Over time, it’s worth it becomes more cost-effective to replace your system.
- Your home is unevenly heated. Are some rooms colder than others? An inadequate heating system won’t warm your home thoroughly.
- Your home is dusty. Leaky air ducts can cause your heating system to distribute dust throughout your home.
- Your system is very noisy. If your heating system is undersized or there is a problem with its functionality and you notice that it’s incredibly loud, this is a major sign that your unit is struggling and on its last leg. A furnace repair or furnace maintenance could be a temporary fix but you’ll likely need a replacement.
