6 Signs You Need To Get A New Furnace

When you’re debating on whether you should replace your furnace there are immediate signs to look for. Having an out of date furnace can cost you more money over the long run, and can even pose a safety threat to your family. The problem is that many people do not know what signs to look for when they need a furnace. Below are 7 of the most important signs that it’s time for a new furnace.


1. Your Furnace Is Old

Having an old furnace is one of the biggest signs that it should be changed. Most furnaces range from 15-20 years therefore if you’re close to that mark it could be time. Doing maintenance to your furnace regularly does increase the lifespan, but sometimes age just takes its toll.

2. Energy Bills Cost More

One of the easiest ways to tell that you need your furnace replaced is if your energy bill all of a sudden starts to increase. When your furnace is not running efficiently it can cause a drastic increase to your energy bill.

3. Extra Dirt, Dust, And Rust Particles In Your Home

When you notice a increased build up of dust and other debris in your air it could be a sign that your furnace is going bad. The extra rust, dust and dander that builds up in your system over the years can eventually enter your home through the vents and is a big sign your furnace should be replaced.

4. Uneven Heat

If you have rooms in your house that just get way hotter than others it could be a furnace problem. When you furnace starts to break down it will not work properly therefore your air could be too hot, too cold, or not really working at all.

5. Cracks & Visible Damage To Your Furnace

As your furnace ages it may start to see cracks, rust and other damage. If your furnace has signs of rust or cracks developing it is best to replace your furnace soon.

6. Frequent Repairs

An older furnace is usually going to break down over time therefore when your furnace starts breaking more often it is a big sign that it’s time to get a new furnace.
