Should I Replace My Furnace This Year?

When to Replace Your Furnace

Investing in a new heating system is a considerable expense for most homeowners. Even if you have the money to do so comfortably, it may not be your ideal way of spending your hard earned money. If you are not sure if your heater will make it through another heating season successfully, though, you’d best hedge your bets and schedule your furnace replacementin New Canaan, CT.

How does one determine if the time for a new furnace has come? The obvious answer is to do so when your furnace breaks down entirely. Because this leaves you open to discomfort when the really cold weather arrives, though, we advise that you take a more proactive approach, and replace your heater before such an event occurs.

Take Age Into Consideration

If your furnace is still working reliably and is not costing too much to run despite its advanced age, by all means continue using that system. The truth is, though, that all furnaces have finite lifespans. Eventually, old age will catch up to your furnace. If your heater seems to struggle to heat your home more than it used to, and it’s approaching or even beyond its expected lifespan, now is probably a good time to move ahead with a furnace replacement.

How Is Its Performance Ranking?

If you are not totally satisfied with the performance of your heating system, or if it is unreliable and requiring repairs more frequently, you should seriously consider a replacement. Remember, just because it’s possible to keep your furnace operational does not mean that doing so is worth the effort. If your furnace is having a tough time and leaving you feeling less than confident in its capabilities, it may be time to replace the system.

What Are Your Heating Costs Like?

If you find yourself dreading your utility bills because of how much running your heater tacks onto them, you should already be looking into more efficient systems. Maybe you bought a relatively inefficient system to save some money at the time of purchase. Perhaps you inherited an inefficient system when you bought your home. Your heater may also be so old that it’s simply lost some of its efficiency capabilities. Whatever the case may be, our technicians are here to outfit your home with a more efficient furnace.
