Is It Time to Say ‘Adios’ to Your Furnace?

cold-manOkay sure, temperatures here in Florida rarely dip below 60 degrees, but even so, you deserve to own a great heating system for when the weather is a bit chilly! Of course, many homeowners here own furnaces, and we are willing to bet that you own one too… otherwise, you wouldn’t be reading this blog!

Sadly, your furnace wasn’t designed to last forever, and in fact, there are plenty of signs that suggest it’s time to invest in a new one. Fortunately for you, we have listed a number of these signs for you below—all you have to do is keep reading to find out more. (Oh! And of course, remember to call our team when you need heating replacement in Pasco County, FL!)

Are You Ready for a Replacement?

There are plenty of signs that suggest the time has come to replace your furnace. These include:


Although built to last, the average lifespan of a furnace is anywhere between 10 and 15 years. An older furnace is simply not going to be as efficient as a newer model. As the system ages, it is likely to accumulate stress from everyday wear and tear, leading to costly repairs and decreased efficiency.

Frequency of Repairs

Sure, your furnace will require repair services from time to time. However, if you have found yourself in the position of calling for repairs more than a couple of times per year, it might be time for a replacement. Eventually, you are going to end up spending more money on an unsalvageable system than it would cost to just replace it. The need for frequent repairs indicates that your system is simply worn out.

A Lack of Heat

The primary role of your furnace is to provide heat for the entire home. A general lack of heat suggests that your system is no longer able to keep up with your household’s heating demands. Why waste your time with an ineffective furnace? Investing in a new system can restore comfort in no time!

Higher Bills

We always recommend keeping a close eye on your monthly heating bills. A steady rise in heating costs suggests that your heater has become inefficient. If you have been paying more for heat, be sure to contact your local HVAC technician right away to pinpoint the exact source of the issue. It just may be that it is time for a new furnace.

If you suspect that the time has come to replace your furnace, do not hesitate to call in a certified HVAC professional. Trust us, only a professional has the tools, training, and expertise to match you with the system that best meets your unique comfort and budget needs.
