Time for Furnace Replacement
Sometimes the tune-up won’t solve the issues. While new, more energy-efficient furnaces are designed to last for 20 to 30 years, older ones just aren’t the same way. Here are the telltale indications that it’s time to consider replacing your furnace:
- You’re paying for repair services far too often.
- Your heating bill has skyrocketed even when you are not changing the temperature on the thermostats in your home.
- You house makes a lot of noises, and they seem to be coming from the furnace.
- You set the thermostat, but some rooms feel like a wood-fired smoker while other areas feel like a giant deep freeze.
- There is a crack in the heat exchanger.
If you’re experiencing any of these, it’s time to say goodbye to your old furnace. Select Home Improvements offers convenient financing options that will make the replacement a breeze.
