When should you buy a new furnace?
Your furnace is one of the most costly appliances you have in your home. Keeping it running efficiently not only lowers your overall energy costs, but makes the furnace last years longer. Today, furnaces are manufactured with energy efficient technology so that they not only use less energy to heat your home, they also lower your energy bills, which will help with the cost of the furnace.
A few signs that you may need to install a new furnace are:
- Your furnace is more than 15 years old. Normally, furnaces last about 18 years, but if your furnace is more than 15 years old, it is most likely old unit and should be replaced with an Energy Star rated furnace, which is 15% more efficient than other furnaces.
- Your heating bill has increased. If your furnace has been repaired by a professional, and your air ducts are sealed, your energy bill should not go up drastically. If it does, it may mean your furnace needs to be replaced.
- Your furnace makes strange noises such as banging and popping. This means an older furnace is nearing the end of its life.
- If your burner flame is yellow and not blue, your furnace may be producing carbon monoxide. This is a gas that is odorless, colorless, and tasteless and can be fatal.
