5 Signs It’s Time for a Furnace Replacement

November 25, 2019

Most homeowners don’t think about their furnace until winter arrives. While you can replace a heating system at any time, it’s best to take care of it before the weather turns cold. If you’re still on the fence about upgrading, here are five signs that you may need a furnace replacement.

1. Energy Costs Are Increasing

According to the Energy Star website, your temperature system is eating almost half of your monthly utility costs. If you’re seeing a jump in your bill compared to last winter, it could be due to an older furnace system. A new energy-efficient unit can reduce monthly costs and increase indoor comfort.

2. Uneven Heating Is Occurring

As equipment ages, so does its ability to work properly. Uneven heating is a sign something needs to be replaced or updated. Brennan Heating & Air Conditioning has a team of professional furnace installers ready to help. We offer furnace inspections and recommendations for property owners in the Seattle, Tacoma, and surrounding areas.

3. Noisy Operation Is a Problem

Excessive popping, rumbling and banging noises are another signal to track. Parts and components can loosen and break down as a furnace gets older. A qualified technician can correctly assess what’s happening inside your equipment.

4. Repairs Are Frequent

Multiple repairs in the two previous seasons is a sign your heater is on its way out. A new system can put a stop to repairs for many years, and what homeowner doesn’t appreciate a repair-free winter? Owning a furnace system is like owning a car — at some point, it’s more cost-effective to replace it than repair it.

5. It’s More Than 15 Years Old

Your old furnace can’t compare with the latest energy-efficient systems. Even if you don’t purchase a new system this year, it’s time to start shopping for one.
