You hate the thought of installing a new heating system. However, you could pay more in the long run if you don’t. Are you hearing strange noises coming from the furnace? Are your heating expenses higher than usual? These are good indications that it’s time to consider a furnace upgrade. Here are a few ways you can tell if you would benefit from a new furnace installation for your Shelbyville, Tennessee, home.
The Furnace Is Old
The standard heater will last anywhere from 15 to 20 years. If your heating bills are increasing and you have been using the furnace for more than 20 years, contact a professional HVAC specialist for a system inspection. There’s a good chance the professional will suggest that you replace the furnace. A geothermal unit is a good investment if you’re considering an upgrade.
You’re Spending a lot on Repairs
Furnaces that are nearing the end of their lifespan will usually require many repairs. If you have to schedule repairs each season, and repair costs are adding up, this is often a sign to go ahead and replace the unit. It’s better to put your money toward a new system that will require only minimal maintenance than to spend on costly repairs.
Difficulty Maintaining a Comfortable Temperature
If you took care of air leaks and other problems and invested in a programmable thermostat but see no difference, the condition of the furnace is usually the reason. A well-functioning heater will have no problem keeping your home at a warm and cozy temperature. Our service technicians will inspect your furnace and provide an honest evaluation.
