Contact Pearson for Installation and Furnace Replacement in Rockford, IL
When the temperature plunges during an Illinois winter, your furnace becomes the most important piece of equipment in your home, absolutely essential for keeping your family warm and comfortable.
With regular maintenance by HVAC professionals, your furnace could last 15 to 20 years and perhaps longer. Like any piece of equipment, however, your furnace is subject to wear over the years and will eventually need to be replaced.
Signs Indicating the Need for Furnace Replacement
The question is when? When do you need to seriously consider replacing your old furnace that has served you for years with a newer, more efficient model?
Here are a few signs indicating that it’s probably time to think seriously about furnace replacement.
Age of the Furnace
As we said, you may well get 15 to 20 years of service out of your furnace. That said, you don’t necessarily want to replace a functioning furnace just because it’s old, but its age does help put some of the other problems you may be having in their proper context.
Rising Utility Bills
If your furnace is around two decades old, it’s not nearly as energy efficient as today’s current models. That lack of efficiency translates into higher utility bills as your furnace strains to keep you warm.
If you‘re regularly shelling out some of your hard earned dollars for repairs, it’s probably time to think of replacement before your furnace dies on you completely, and probably at the worst possible time.
If your furnace is running constantly but not keeping your home warm and comfortable, or if some areas are warmer than others, it’s probably time to seriously consider replacing your old furnace.
Strange Sounds and Smells
If your furnace is making banging or grinding noises or if it’s emitting a strange smell, either of those indicate the need for immediate repair work and quite possibly total replacement.
Under normal conditions, your furnace will cycle on when the temperature in your home drops below the thermostat setting. When that setting is reached, it will cycle off. If your furnace is frequently cycling on and off, or if it’s running continuously, it may be telling you it’s time for replacement.
