For homeowners, it can be difficult to know when a furnace needs to be replaced compared to just repaired. Here are a few tips:
Check the owner’s manual or call the manufacturer with the model number to learn the exact age of your furnace (most units can run 20 to 30 years with proper maintenance but can start to wear down at 15)
Check your energy bills and see if they’re getting worse despite not changing the thermostat drastically
Be aware of any uneven heating in your home (if any rooms are much hotter or colder than others) and any humidity issues
Keep an eye out for excessive dirt, rust or dust on your furnace unit
Listen for loud rattling, humming or just excessive noise from your furnace
If you’re dealing with any of these issues, it might be time to replace your furnace. Luckily, the team at Simcoe Home Comfort works with and installs quality ENERGY STAR®-rated products. We can also run gas lines in your Barrie home. Talk to our staff today about your furnace repair or new furnace needs in Barrie.
