Your furnace is undoubtedly one of the most important appliances in your household – just think of a cold winter day without any heating. We understand the importance of a safe and efficient furnace when it comes to your family’s comfort, so we make it our business to learn about, analyze, compare, and assess all furnaces. Stay informed, check out our top signs to look for when it’s time to replace your furnace in Toronto:
Today’s furnace models can last for 20 to 30 years with proper care and maintenance. However, if your furnace is more than 15 years old, a furnace replacement is a course of action worth considering. Make sure to schedule a furnace inspection to safeguard any issues or inefficiencies.
If your furnace tends to require frequent repairs in order to function properly, it’s likely that it will need to be replaced within the next couple of years. A general rule of thumb: if the cost of the repair is half the cost of a new furnace, you should go ahead with the replacement. However, it’s important to keep in mind that while older furnaces tend to require more frequent repairs, it may be better to replace the furnace altogether – even if the cost of the repair is minimal. This is because, if your furnace is nearing the end of its lifespan, even less expensive repairs may not be worthwhile as your furnace is more likely to breakdown again soon.
Another indication it may be time for a furnace replacement is increased energy bills (despite usage staying the same). As well, if you find rooms in your home are heating unevenly, with some being significantly colder, you may have a problem with your furnace. Furthermore, humidity problems and excessive noise, such as humming or rattling are indicators that your furnace may be nearing the end of its lifespan.
