Modern furnaces are durable and can last for many years. Given the proper care and necessary repairs, the furnace in your home should last up to and beyond its manufacturer’s expected lifespan. This often means 20 years of effective warmth for you and your family.
But no mechanical device lasts forever. At some point, your furnace will begin to signal that the time has come to replace it. If you need furnace replacement in Houston, TX, look to the experienced staff at KAC Express. We can run tests on your current furnace to see if you need replacement, help you determine the best system to install, and then take care of the heavy work from there. When should you call us?
When you hear these signs from your furnace:
Continuous noisy operation
Furnaces were once the noisiest of heating systems, but now they operate with a minimum of distracting sounds. An occasional odd noise will indicate a repair need. But if a furnace begins to grind, groan, and rattle while running, it has probably become too decrepit from use and will no longer respond to repairs.
If your furnace has gone past its manufacturer’s estimated lifespan, then you’ve already gotten a fantastic bargain from it… and you should consider changing it before it fails or begins to develop numerous repair problems. It is better to head-off a breakdown and an emergency installment with a “preventive” installment. Have installers test your aged heater to see if it should receive a replacement in the near future.
Rising energy bills
You should have a good idea how much it costs to use your furnace each month during the winter. If those costs start to rise without any good reason and do not change because of repairs, then the furnace is degrading to the point that it must overwork to achieve the same results. Have professionals inspect the furnace to make sure there isn’t another reason for the increase in power drain.
Replacing a furnace is a major event, although with the right installers it should go smoothly. You might even take this opportunity to try a new type of heating system, such as a heat pump, to replace your furnace. Your installers can help you navigate your many choices so you will get the heating system that’s right for you and which will work for many years to come.
