5 Signs You Need a Heating System Replacement

The technicians at Custom Comfort Air understand the lifestyle of a heating system. We’re here to expertly install new units. Our team can also maintain and repair a system so that it runs season after season. We may be the first ones to suggest that it’s time for a replacement. The signs of a failing system may be right in front of you.

1. Increased Fuel Use

As heating systems age, they become less efficient. We can mitigate some of the effects of age through annual maintenance, but there is only so much we can do. As the system loses efficiency, it will use more fuel each month.

2. Constant Operation

You expect your heating system to cycle on and off throughout the heating season to keep a constant temperature in your home. One of the signs of an aging system is that it has to burn longer to reach the temperature you need. It may feel like the unit is constantly in operation. Not only does this increase your utility bills, but the wear and tear also increases the risk of system failure.

3. Multiple Repairs

There is always a chance that a part will fail on your furnace. Our technicians are more than ready to repair any system. However, if you are making multiple repair calls in a single season, it is a clear sign that the system is near the end of its useful life.

4. Inadequate Heating

As the heating system struggles to push warm air throughout your home, you may notice that some rooms are colder than others. The further heating zones are from the furnace itself, the more difficult it is for an old furnace to warm them. That cold upstairs bedroom may be a sign of a weak furnace.

5. Age of System

We suggest that if your furnace is over 15 years old, it is time to start thinking about a replacement. The technology that runs these units improves every year. Your new furnace will be quieter, more powerful and more efficient than your current system.
