Winter is here, and if you aren’t yet relying on your furnace on a daily basis you soon will be. Along with that added use comes added stress, and some of us have furnaces that just won’t be able to cope. If your furnace can’t get you through another winter, it’s highly advisable that you have it replaced now. Otherwise, you may have the system break down on you in the middle of winter. No one wants to be without heat for a week or more while they scramble to find a new heating system. Keep an eye out for these signs that your furnace needs to be replaced.
The older a furnace gets, the more worn down it gets. Eventually, this starts to impact the efficiency of the system as a whole. As the efficiency of the furnace steadily declines, it has to work for longer and longer periods to achieve the same temperature. This manifests in higher heating bills for doing the same basic job. If your heating bills are rising for no apparent reason, it may mean that you need to replace your furnace.
The same wear and tear that causes the furnace to become less efficient will eventually cause parts of the system to start failing. Since each part wears down a bit differently, you may end up with multiple parts failing within a few weeks of each other. Normally, a furnace shouldn’t need repairs more than once or twice a year at most. If you need to repair your furnace every few months, it is a pretty good sign that you’d be better off replacing it.
