Do I Need to Replace My Furnace?

The best way to determine if your furnace needs replacing is to consult with an HVAC service provider. A service technician can thoroughly assess the condition, safety and efficiency of the system better than anyone else.
Consider calling a technician if:
  • Your furnace is more than 10 years old.  These units typically operate at only 50% efficiency. Some older units can operate at as little as 35% efficiency.
  • Your carbon monoxide detector is going off.  This can be a sign of a cracked heat exchanger in your furnace – a potentially deadly situation.
  • The system has not been serviced within the last two years.
  • Your heating bills have gradually increased over the past several months.
  • Your home does not feel like it is heating consistently from room to room or floor to floor.
Although it is not inexpensive to replace a furnace, it is possible to make up the cost within a few years due to the increased efficiency of a new system.  In addition, homeowners who install new, certified, energy efficient furnaces can qualify for federal tax credits.
