Furnace Replacement in the Main Line

We all know the feeling when winter comes in the Main Line and we go to start up the furnace for the first time. Will it start up without a hiccup and run perfectly the entire season, or will it go out randomly on the coldest day of the year? While no one can predict exactly when your furnace will go out, there are a few telltale issues that could be showing themselves prior to your furnace completely shutting down.

No one likes to live with a broken down furnace, but how do you know if it’s time to consider a replacement? There are various factors that play in to this situation, but at O'Brien Heating & Air Conditioning, we’ve got a few things in particular that may help you determine if it’s time to say goodbye to your furnace and hello to a new one.



 
Furnace age: the life expectancy of furnaces usually averages between 12-17 years. If yours is 15 years old or older, it has an increased chance of failing, so researching new furnaces now is a good way to get ahead of the game just in case. Increased energy bills: throughout the years of maintaining a comfy home, furnaces can drop in efficiency. If your furnace hasn’t been serviced, you also run the risk of losing efficiency as well, potentially increasing your monthly energy bills.
Inconsistent heating: if your system isn’t sealed accurately and there are leaks, you could be feeling the effects of an inconsistently heated home. Making sure your ductwork is sealed properly and that you have recently switched your furnace filter can help you keep your home snug. Uncomfortable home: whether it’s age, or it’s simply run its course, a furnace that isn’t able to keep your home enjoyable during the cold months isn’t doing much of anything. It probably is time to say goodbye.
 
 
 

While furnace replacement may sound a little intimidating, new furnaces offer a variety of benefits that older systems simply can’t compete with. Plus, you’ll be able to stay calm knowing that you likely won’t have to worry about restoring that system for years to come. A new furnace could mean:

 

 
  • Reduced furnace repairs: new systems seem to work pretty well right out of the box, and keeping up with annual furnace service will only help the confidence that your furnace keeps that trend up. While we can’t pledge you will never have any repairs that need to be made, newer systems usually have a lower need for repairs.
  • Quieter operation: have you ever heard the rumblings and clanking coming from your old furnace and wondered what the heck is going on? A new furnace offers the newest in quiet operation technology and may even be so quiet that you don’t even hear it turn on.
  • Improved furnace efficiency: advances in technology have afforded the HVAC industry quite a few benefits. One of the greatest is the increase in efficiency we see across the board. New furnaces, regardless of the price point, often offer exceptionally better efficiency levels than systems from 20-25 years ago. Not to mention they’re so much more reliable too.
