Signs You Require Furnace Repairs

It’s obvious you need repairs when warmed air simply isn’t flowing, but stay on the lookout for some other signs that your furnace needs expert attention:

  • Your system constantly stops and starts, but doesn’t properly heat up your home
  • You see bits of debris or dust coming out of your vents as air flows
  • You hear odd sounds coming from your vents or furnace
  • Humid or moist air comes from your vents

Do I Need Furnace Repair or Replacement?

Sometimes, it may make more financial sense in the long-term to replace your furnace instead of repair it. For example:

  • If your furnace is reaching the end of its lifetime. Furnaces last for about 10 to 18 years so if yours starts breaking down after its 10th year or so, it might be time to replace it.
  • Major components are not working. If a major element of your furnace like the heat exchanger or even the control module is broken, it may be more cost-effective to install a new furnace.

A new furnace can help you save money on your utilities over time and some new models qualify for rebates. Our certified technicians hold integrity and honesty as some of our core values and will always give you all of your options then let you decide what’s right for your home.

How Energy-Efficient is Your Furnace?

Most central heating systems use gas, which is then converted into heating energy. Many of you may know that efficient furnaces release fewer emissions, so if you are looking to be environmentally friendly, keep this in mind. Some models today can achieve 97% efficiency, whereas in the 1970s they were about 65%. A few questions you should ask your contractor when purchasing a furnace, are: Is this furnace fairly new? Are there any reliability issues? If the model was introduced within the last two years then there still has not been enough time for it to be tested, so you don’t really know what to expect.
