Knowing when to replace your furnace is tricky. You may be thinking that if it’s still working, why go through the trouble of finding a new one? At Martens Plumbing & Heating, we have a reason why—five of them, actually. Discover below all the reasons to get a new furnace now instead of waiting, and call us at 262-363-7146 for installation.
#1 – Your System Is Old
If your furnace is 20 years old or older, it’s time to look into getting a new one. Furnaces typically last between 15 and 20 years before they turn on for the last time. So, if yours falls into that range or exceeds it—no matter how well you’ve maintained it over the years—consider shopping around for a replacement. Otherwise, you could risk a sudden breakdown.
#2 – Lower Your Energy Bills
Buying a new furnace now can help you save money on your future energy bills. Today’s heating systems are much more energy efficient right out of the box than older models. Plus, old furnaces tend to lose efficiency as they get older, which can cause your bills to skyrocket. A replacement system solves those problems and even helps you save on energy costs.
#3 – Fewer Repairs
The longer a home furnace runs, the more stress gets put on the system. While Martens Plumbing’s maintenance services are second to none, sometimes excess stress between appointments can happen and break down your unit. Older systems are more susceptible to this, and the older the unit, the better the chance that a repair could be too costly to make. A new furnace installation can help you avoid those heating headaches.
#4 – Reliable Heat
As they wind down, furnaces tend not to produce as much heat as they should. This can leave you feeling cold and uncomfortable at the worst times, especially if this happens in the middle of winter. Not only will a new system erase that problem, but you also won’t have to worry about whether it will happen again.
#5 – Better Indoor Air Quality
Furnaces work by creating warm air and forcing it throughout your house using ductwork. As that air blows, it picks up and circulates dust, dander, pet hair, and other contaminants—all of which can aggravate allergies or cause other health problems. Older systems are not as good at filtering those pollutants out of your indoor air supply as a new system, especially those paired with products such as ventilators, humidifiers, and purifiers.
