How do you know if it’s time to buy a new furnace? How do you know if replacement is necessary and not just a repair? There are many different personal and professional factors that help determine this, but Heartland Heating & Cooling has a few guidelines in deciding if the time has come to depart from your old furnace.

Furnace age: the average life of a furnace lasts between 12-17 years. After 15 years, furnaces have a bigger risk of dying so if your furnace is reaching that age, it might be time to start researching some new furnaces with Heartland Heating & Cooling. High energy bills: furnaces may not operate successfully as they get more work out of them, and if they aren’t checked out frequently, they may also lose efficiency.
Spotty heating: systems must be enclosed properly to avoid leaks and make sure they are consistent in heating your home. If your ductwork isn’t enclosed properly or the furnace is beyond repair, a new furnace with new ductwork will really keep your home cozy. Indoor air quality: older ductwork can be stuffed with dust, mold, or mildew after years of use. If you notice that the quality of your indoor air is poor or that members of your family are fighting allergens, furnace replacement might be necessary.
