Signs It's Time to Replace a Furnace

1.   Uneven Room Temperature

If you notice uneven heating or some rooms are not heated at all, it is time to start thinking about furnace replacement. But before making the call, consider other possible causes.

Check for open doors, windows, or damaged insulation in the affected rooms. Damaged or blocked vents also cause uneven heating. If none of these is the problem, your furnace can no longer serve your heating needs. It's time to call furnace installation services in your area.

2.   Deteriorating Air Quality

Indoor air quality is essential for the family's health and comfort. Compromised air quality affects comfort and may cause allergies and other health complications.

Some telltale signs of deteriorating air quality include dust, soot, rust particles, and humidity.

Clogged ducts are the primary cause of poor air quality. They also cause poor airflow, which compounds the quality problem. Although you can clean clogged ducts, a dirty and rusty system puts you in the fast lane to a furnace replacement.

3.   A Yellowish Pilot Light

The pilot light's color helps you gauge the health of your furnace. Its normal color is blue. As long as it remains blue, you can rest easy and enjoy your heated home. But if the light starts to turn yellow, it is time to consider a home furnace replacement.

Poor ventilation is the most common cause of yellow pilot light. It shows that carbon monoxide is not dissipating adequately. CO poses a health risk and affects the furnace's efficiency. It is best to stop using the furnace and contact heating installation services.

4.   Rising Utility Bills

Rising utility bills indicate that your furnace is running at reduced efficiency. Over time the motors suffer wear and tear, and your furnace has to work harder to maintain the thermostat temperatures.

Worn-out gas valves and burners in a gas furnace can also diminish efficiency, resulting in more gas consumption.

If such inefficiencies continue even after minor repairs, consider gas furnace replacement.

5.   Noisy Furnace

Furnaces make a typical motor humming sound when they start. Unfamiliar noises are a sign there is a problem with your heating system. Squeaking, rattling, and exploding sounds point to loose parts, worn-out parts, or severe mechanical damages.

Hire a heating repair expert to repair and replace worn-out parts. However, note that repairs may only offer a short reprieve. Cracks, leaks, and other structural damages may be more expensive than furnace replacement.

6.   Frequent Repairs

The frequency and cost of furnace repairs increase with your appliances age. Consider a furnace replacement if the repair costs exceed half a new furnace installation price.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Included In Furnace Replacement Service?

Furnace replacement services begin with an inspection and quotation development. They include the removal of the old furnace and other system parts that need replacement, as revealed by the inspection. Then comes the new furnace installation, repairs, and changes to the heating system to match the new equipment.

How Much Does it Cost to Replace a Furnace?

Furnace replacement can cost up to $5500 on average. Furnace replacement cost ranges between $2500 and $6500 depending on the type and size of the appliance.

 Furnace replacement costs may also include building permit costs and fees according to local authority requirements.

When Should You Replace Your Old Furnace?

Do not wait until your furnace can not run to replace it. It will probably break down in the middle of winter when you need it most. Look out for the common warning signs that you need a furnace replacement.

Most furnaces last between 20 and 25 years. But you do not have to wait that long to consider a replacement. After about 15 years of use, you should consider replacing a furnace with frequent problems.

You can always extend your furnace’s lifespan by proper routine maintenance. Maintenance includes cleaning burners and changing filters every year. Consider having a furnace technician inspect and perform furnace tune-ups before winter.

How Long Does Furnace Installation Take?

The average furnace installation takes less than a day. It takes 5 to 10 hours, depending on the size and the complexity of the heating system.
