With temperatures starting to drop around Fairfield County, many homeowners are turning on their heating system for the first time of the season. Keep your eye out for these three signs when you fire up your furnace – they could indicate it’s time for a new one.
1. Your furnace is more than 15 years old.
Think of where technology was fifteen years ago. You wouldn’t use a cell phone that was made in 2001, or a computer, so why would you use a furnace? Heating equipment that old does not meet the demand of today’s efficiency standards. In fact, a new Energy Star furnace can actually pay for itself with the energy savings it provides.
2. Inconsistent temperatures throughout your home.
Does a walk through your home feel like you are traveling between climates? Are you constantly adjusting your thermostat, but can never quite get comfortable? These are signs that your current furnace cannot effectively distribute heat throughout your home.
3. Your furnace is in constant need of repair.
How many times in the past few years have you needed to call a local HVAC repair service? Most furnaces tend to incur the majority of their breakdowns within the last two years of their lifespan, so if yours is constantly in need of repair, it might be on the way out. Save that money you would be spending on repairs and put it towards a new system that will last longer.
