It’s been a long, snowy winter here in Northwest Ohio. Your furnace has been working all winter to keep your home warm. However, if you have an older furnace, it might be time for an upgrade at the end of the season before next winter. In this blog, we’ll review the three signs you need a new furnace.
#1. Your old furnace isn’t heating your home
This is a big problem. The entire reason you have a furnace is so that you don’t have to be cold in your home. If your furnace isn’t meeting your expectations this winter and it’s getting up there in age, it’s probably time for an upgrade.
Maybe comfort isn’t important to you. However, a lack of great heating, paired with this next item, is a strong motivation to make the switch.
#2. Your winter energy bills are rising
As furnaces age, they tend to get less efficient. Furnaces that are 10-20 years old can’t hold a candle to newer models. Not only do they have aging parts and systems that don’t work as well as when they were new, but new furnaces are more energy-efficient than ever.
If this has been an expensive winter for you, it might be a sign that your older furnace is starting to cost you more than it’s worth. Of course, that’s especially true if…
#3. You’re putting more and more money into repairs
Here’s the other thing: furnaces get older and more things start to go wrong with them more frequently. Worst of all, those things probably are no longer covered by the manufacturer’s warranty that originally came with the system.
A professional furnace tune-up in the fall can help prevent many furnace issues, but it gets to a point with an older furnace where the headache and cost of repairs throughout a cold winter are probably no longer worth it.
