Furnance Replacement: When Is It Time?

Posted on: 24 October 2022

As a homeowner, you want to make sure that you are staying on top of how well your furnace is functioning, especially if the temperatures in your region drop to dangerous levels. The last thing you want is to find yourself fighting to stay warm in the middle of a freezing winter night because the furnace finally stopped working for the final time. Here are some of the furnace issues you will want to take as signs that it is time for a furnace replacement:

You're Starting To Notice Rust

If you have not had the chance to take a close look at your furnace in a while, now would be the time to do it. You will want to inspect every part of the furnace that you can see without opening it up. Do you see any rust? If you do, you need to take this as a sign that the furnace is very old and probably due for a replacement. You might also notice some cracking, which can be taken as another sign that it is time for a replacement furnace.

The Heating Bill Is Getting Crazy High

You might have started to notice that your heating bill is getting a little higher every month. First, check to see if there are rate increases from the utility company that is causing this. You might also want to see if this year's temperatures are record lows, which would explain why it is costing more to keep your home nice and warm during the winter. If those are not the problem, then it is likely that the furnace is no longer energy efficient and it is causing you to have to pay more to stay warm. Instead of continuing to pay more than you should for heat, you will want to call for furnace replacement services. If you do not want to wait too long for an appointment, you will want to call a company that offers 24/7 furnace replacement services.

24/7 furnace replacement is usually available in all areas. You might just need to do a little search to find out which HVAC companies offer the option of 24/7 furnace replacement services. The companies that offer round-the-clock furnace replacement services will have evening, late night, and weekend availability. This is ideal for someone that needs different appointment times than the standard business day appointment slots or that has ended up with a completely dead furnace and it's getting cold inside the house.

Lowering Your HVAC Expenses

After we purchased our very first home, I realized that I was really struggling with paying for the heating and cooling costs. We were spending much, much more money every month than we thought we were going to, and it was really difficult to figure out what we should do. We thought long and hard about how to minimize our expenses, but we didn't really get anywhere until we talked with an HVAC contractor. He mentioned specific, actionable ways to lower our bill, such as programming our thermostat and using more of our ceiling fans. This blog is all about lowering your bill.
