Say Goodbye to Your Old Furnace in 2020!

Furnaces are by far the most popular home heating systems on the market today — and for good reason! Not only are they incredibly efficient, but they’re also super good at doing their job of keeping you warm and toasty, no matter how cold it gets outside.

But, no matter how efficient or effective your furnace is, eventually, it is going to have to be replaced. Fortunately, there are plenty of telltale signs that suggest furnace replacement in Colorado Springs is in your future, and below, we have listed some of them for you. All you’ve got to do is keep reading to find out more!

Ready for a Replacement?

Here are some of the telltale signs that suggest it’s time to upgrade your furnace:

Old Age

Although built to last, the average lifespan of a furnace heater is anywhere between 10 and 15 years. An older furnace is simply not going to be as efficient as a newer model. As the system ages, it is likely to accumulate stress from everyday wear and tear, leading to costly repairs and decreased efficiency.

Repairs… Many, Many Repairs

Sure, your furnace will require repair services from time to time. However, if you have found yourself in the position of calling for repairs more than a couple of times per year, it might be time for a heating system replacement. As a rule of thumb, if you are spending 50% or more the cost of a new system on repairs, it is better to just bite the bullet and replace it.

You’re Always Cold

The primary role of your furnace is to provide heat for the entire home. A general lack of heat suggests that your system is no longer able to keep up with your household’s heating demands. Why waste your time with an ineffective furnace? Invest in a new system can restore comfort in no time!

A Sad-Looking Wallet

We always recommend keeping a close eye on your monthly heating bills. A steady rise in heating costs suggests that your heater has become inefficient. If you have been paying more for heat, be sure to contact your local HVAC technician right away to pinpoint the exact source of the issue. It may just be that it is time for a new furnace.

Call in a Professional ASAP!

If you suspect that it is time to replace your furnace, do not hesitate to contact a team of professionals. Trust us, only a certified HVAC professional has the tools, training, and expertise to match you with a new system and install it accordingly.

And yes, there may be plenty of amateurs willing to provide these services for a fairly cheap price, but remember that sometimes an attempt to save money could end up costing you much more in the long run. When it comes to your comfort and your budget, you don’t want to take any risks!
