Top 5 Reasons You May Need to Replace Your Furnace

Furnaces St. Louis

When deciding to invest in a new furnace, you want to make a well-informed decision. However, if you’re looking for a new furnace in an emergency, you may not always have the opportunity or time to choose the best option for you and your family. That’s why we recommend to replace a furnace before it fails and is reaching the end of its life.

Read on for the top 5 signs that your furnace needs replacement.

Heating St. Louis

  1. Age: The average lifespan of a furnace is 16-20 years of age. If your furnace is close to this range, then you should start looking for a new one.
  2. High utility bills: If you notice that your utility bills have increased while your heat usage hasn’t, then your furnace may need replacement. As furnaces get older, they become much less efficient especially if they haven’t had routine maintenance.
  3. High repair costs: If you’ve spent a large amount of money on furnace repairs in at least the last 2 years or must order replacement parts because no one carries your furnace’s parts anymore, then you should consider the costs of repairs versus installing a new furnace.
  4. Signs of carbon monoxide leakage: If you notice that your burner flame is yellow instead of blue, soot stains by your furnace, increased rusting on pipes, appliances plugs or your outdoor vent pipe, then have your furnace inspected immediately. These are all signs of deadly carbon monoxide gas leaks.
  5. Decreased comfort level: Have you noticed that your indoor air quality is drier or that some rooms are hotter or colder than others? This may be because your furnace no longer can moisturize and clean your indoor air due to its old age.
