Furnace ReplacementIf you have concerns about your existing furnace, you may wonder if you need repairs or if it might be time to consider furnace replacement. You will want to consult a professional for their opinion before your furnace stops working completely. Don’t let your family be stuck in the cold!

First, it is important for all homeowners to have a general idea of the age of their furnace. Often, the unit was there when you purchased the property, so this may take some research to figure out. If you have the manual for your unit, it may have the manufacturing or installation date on it. If not, you can call the manufacturer. If you give them the model and serial number, they may be able to tell you the unit’s age. When you are living with a furnace that is more than 15 years old, it is time to start considering alternatives because you are probably going to need furnace replacement sooner rather than later.

There are some signs to look for that indicate you may need furnace replacement:

  • Look at the exterior of your furnace. If there are signs of cracks, corrosion or rust, it may be time to replace it.
  • Your furnace has started making new or loud noises.
  • Your furnace turns itself on and off more often than it once did.
  • Your home is not heating evenly.
  • You have new issues with interior humidity.
  • You have not been using your furnace more, but your electric bill is suddenly higher.

When you are considering furnace replacement, it is a good idea to shop around and get at least three estimates for the complete job, including the exact specifications of what new furnace will be installed. The estimate should also include any changes needed to tie into the existing ductwork and the removal and discarding of your old unit.

Furnace ReplacementHave you always enjoyed reading, or watching an excellent mystery?  Do you like playing the part of the detective, the one who has to figure out, “whodunnit?”  If so, you may want to use your mad skills of deduction to help you determine whether or not it is time for a furnace replacement for your home or office.

As with any mystery, determining what the underlying cause of your problem is involves the application of certain skills, such as making observations, following clues, and coming to a conclusion based on the things you’ve observed.  When it comes to making observations, one of your first clues that your furnace is having issues is probably the way that it is, or rather isn’t, functioning.  When you notice that your furnace is blowing cool air, that it is failing to heat the space adequately, or is making strange noises or smells, your detective senses should signal that you may need to have a furnace replacement performed.  While you could choose to play detective for longer, investigating until you’ve found the exact source of your troubles, we have a solution that will save you time and effort, possibly money, and will be certain to keep you safer than finding the source of your troubles yourself.  That solution is to call on us for our furnace replacement services.

When we come to your home, we will determine what is wrong with your furnace and help you with the repair, or if necessary, furnace replacement.  At FurnaceDepot.ca, we have the skills, knowledge and experience needed to provide you with a high-quality furnace that will serve you well for years to come.  When it comes to your furnace, leave the detective work, the installation, repairs, replacement and service to us.  You’ll be glad you did.

Often homeowners have difficulty deciding whether to have their furnace repaired or to have it replaced. As an expensive piece of equipment to replace, many people may opt to repair it until it completely breaks down. A furnace replacement is usually more expensive than repairs, but it can sometimes be the more cost-effective option.

The Cost-Effectiveness of Furnace Replacement

If you are trying to decide if furnace replacement is the best choice for you, here are a few things to consider. The most obvious time to choose a replacement is if the repairs will be equivalent to or exceed the cost of a new furnace. It is recommended that no matter how old it is, if the repairs will cost as much as half of a new furnace, it is more cost-effective to replace it. A replacement could also be a better choice if your furnace is older than 15 to 20 years. Even small repairs at this age may not be worth the investment.

It can also be more cost-effective to install a newer furnace, since technological advancements in the equipment may be able to save you money on utilities. Newer furnaces are becoming more and more efficient with each updated model, and older versions may begin to cost more each month in utilities as they start to wear down.

We hope this will help you to make the most cost-effective choice as you’re trying to decide about a furnace replacement. At FurnaceDepot.ca, we are here to help you make an informed decision that will be best for you and your home. Please let us know how we can help, and we will be there!
