No one wants to face that it’s time to replace their furnace. However, all household appliances reach the end of their useable lifespan at some point. Here are some warning signs that indicate it’s time for a furnace replacement in your The Villages, FL, home.
1. The Age of Your Furnace
According to home improvement icon Bob Vila, most furnaces last between 15 and 20 years if they have been properly maintained. Knowing how old your furnace is can give you a good idea of whether you need to consider having a new one installed. Instead of spending money on a 20-year-old furnace, choose a newer, more energy-efficient option.
2. Uneven Heating Throughout Your Home
When you use your furnace, you do so with the expectation that every room in your home will be at the same temperature. If you begin to notice that some rooms are hotter than others, it means that your furnace isn’t able to push air throughout your home evenly. This problem is usually solved with a furnace replacement.
3. Strange Noises
When a furnace is operating properly, it runs in near silence. If you begin to hear strange noises coming from your furnace, it can mean any number of issues. While you should never try to diagnose or repair these problems yourself, one of our service technicians can help you decide what the problem is. Depending on what they find, it may be time for a new furnace for your home.
4. Frequent Repairs
You wouldn’t keep taking an old car to the mechanic for frequent repairs. Therefore, you shouldn’t keep spending money on furnace repairs for a system that constantly fails. If the annual cost of furnace repairs equals the price of a new system, a new furnace is a sound investment.
Not only can our team of service technicians help diagnose what’s wrong with your furnace, but they can also give you advice on whether to have a new system installed. Call DeSantis Appliance & AC Service Inc today to find out how we can service all of your home’s heating and cooling needs.
