When the time comes to replace your old gas furnace with a newer, more efficient, and better working model, the conditions usually warrant a speedy decision.
You may find yourself suffering through a cold Baltimore night, huddled under blankets, with a somewhat disgruntled family. You want a warm home and you need it now!
Knowing the precise time to replace your gas furnace would be ideal, but more often than not, your unit simply stops working. It may happen to you with seemingly no advance notice.
But if you look and listen carefully, there may be some sign of an impending need to replace your old unit with a more efficient and better operating one.
Judging the Efficiency of your Furnace
Replacing your gas furnace can be a costly investment. However, when operating an inefficient, older unit, you may not realize how much money you could be wasting in fuel costs alone. Government regulations and consumer demands have ensured that the new gas furnaces manufactured today are absolutely the most efficient and money-saving models to date. While your initial investment in a new gas furnace may seem expensive, you’ll see the payoff immediately in your monthly heating bills. A new, more efficient furnace can cut your heating costs up to 20 percent with your next bill.
By contacting a professional, experienced in gas furnace replacement, you can get an idea of your unit’s efficiency. The technicians at HB McClure Home Service Team are skilled in the area of furnace repair and replacement and can offer knowledgeable advice before you make an investment in a new gas furnace.
Replacing Your Gas Furnace
When the Baltimore County area temperatures begin to plummet, you may already wonder if your furnace is up to the task of heating your home. You gently prod the thermostat and listen for sounds of your unit engaging. You step over to the vent, hoping to feel warm air begin circulating. If your gas furnace doesn’t engage quickly, or the air blowing out of the circulation vent isn’t remotely warm, this may be a sign you need to replace your unit.
If you’re able to provide repairs and get your unit started, it may only be a quick fix. You will likely end up calling a professional technician, possibly as an emergency call, and find out you need to replace your unit. Schedule a visit with a professional before you find yourself in a desperate situation.
Another sign that you may need to replace your gas furnace includes the age of your unit. If your gas furnace is older than 15 years and has proven even slightly less than reliable, you should look for a replacement. You can call on a professional heating technician to perform an inspection, but in all likelihood, you will need to replace your current system in order to be assured your home will be warm in the coming months.
