The home that you bought had a furnace in it, at least, one would hope. And maybe it worked well for many years or was less than reliable right off the bat. Eventually though, you may conclude that you need a furnace replacement. There are several things that may convince you that the time is now.
No One Ever Walks in and Compliments You on Your Furnace
For the most part, the home’s heating system should be a quiet, unassuming unit, doing its job so well that no one really notices it at all. It is one of those things that you do not comment on unless there is a problem. All furnaces make some noises when they kick on, run and then kick back off, but the family that lives in the home typically become used to those sounds and never notice them anymore. But, if there are new noises or the furnace starts emitting funky smells, then they are noticed because there is a problem that must be dealt with.
Other signs of a potential problem with the furnace is constant neediness: if you are relighting the pilot light or resetting the manual reset switch, it is likely that you are looking at furnace repair. In the case of a very old furnace system, furnace replacement can be a much more logical and economical suggestion.
Is Your Furnace Big Enough for Your Home?
Another time to consider a furnace replacement is if you have recently built on to your home. While the original furnace may have worked well for the original home’s size, by increasing the area that needs to be heated, you increase the output the furnace must be capable of providing. That can put a serious strain on the mechanical aspects of the furnace and may hasten its eventual demise.
