To Repair or Replace Your Furnace?
Choosing between repairing or replacing your furnace isn’t always easy. At Northern Comfort Systems, our highly trained HVAC technicians thoroughly examine your system for subtle signs that furnace failure is just over the horizon. Some of the telltale signs we look for during a furnace inspection include:
- System age – Generally, a properly maintained furnace will provide reliable operation for 15 to 20 years. The older your system, the more likely it will fail.
- Dust buildup – Significant dust buildup can indicate the system is processing air less efficiently. If the filters are dirty or not regularly changed, the system loses its capacity to keep your home warm.
- Odd noises/smells – Strange sounds like banging and clanking, screeching, and squealing often indicate loose or damaged components. These sounds are often accompanied by strange smells, including burning odors, mechanical odors, and “rotten eggs.”
- Yellow pilot – If the pilot light isn’t blue, it indicates increasing carbon buildup on the burners. This is a common sign of incomplete combustion that can leak Carbon Monoxide gas into your home.
- Cold air – Cold air blowing through the registers can indicate significant problems with the furnace. There are many causes that our technicians will investigate.
If your furnace is older and has any of these problems, or if the cost of repairs exceeds 50% of the replacement cost, then replacement is usually the best course of action.
