3 Common Signs That It’s Time for a New Furnace

Winter is in full swing and many homeowners who know they will eventually need to replace their furnace are hoping to get through one last winter before it’s time. At Econo West Heating, Air & Plumbing we are here to assure you that it is going to be cheaper and easier to replace it sooner rather than later. Do not wait for what is a minor inconvenience to turn into a costly emergency.

If you are not entirely sure whether you should be investing in a new furnace now or later, read on to learn about three sure signs that it’s time to seriously consider replacing your current unit. Then contact Econo West Heating, Air & Plumbing at (661) 269-0308 for a consultation.

  1. Your furnace is old

  2. Furnaces are not immortal. At some point, they will stop working. If you have had your furnace for 15 or 20 years then you should be grateful it has worked that long and should expect to replace it soon. If you are not sure how old it is, look at the furnace and you should find the manufacturer’s date. If it is older than 20 years then we recommend replacing it. In fact, it is often the case that when the warranty on a furnace has expired, it’s soon time to buy a new one.

  3. Your energy bills have gone up

  4. As your furnace gets older, parts begin to succumb to wear and tear. When the system is no longer working in its best condition, the furnace will need to work harder to keep your home warm. Take a moment to look at your past heating bills. Do you see them slowly going up over the years? Do you see them going up quickly? If you install a more energy efficient furnace, you will both use less energy and enjoy a more comfortably head home.

  5. Your furnace needs regular repairs

  6. Ideally, you would not need to have your furnace repaired on a regular basis. While keeping it properly maintained and serviced can go a long way, they can’t make it last forever. If you find yourself calling for repairs once or even twice per year, then it is likely more cost-effective in the long run to replace your older unit with a newer one that will not need frequent repairs. Once you have your new furnace, invest in regular maintenance so it lasts as long as possible.
