replacing old furnace with new one

Furnace Replacement in Scottsboro

We all worry about the feeling when winter hits in Scottsboro and we go to start up the furnace for the first time. Will it start up without a hitch and run impeccably the entire season, or will it go out out of nowhere on the coldest day of the year? While no one can predict exactly when your furnace will go out, there are a few telltale signs that could be showing themselves prior to your furnace completely quitting.

No one likes to handle a broken down furnace, but how do you know if it’s time to contemplate a replacement? There are various factors that play in to this decision, but at Southern Heating & Cooling Inc., we’ve got a few tips 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 typically 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 great way to get ahead of the game just in case. Increased energy bills: throughout the years of maintaining a comfy home, furnaces can lose 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 correctly 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 replaced 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 warm during the cold months isn’t doing much of anything. It could be time to say goodbye.
 
 
 

While furnace replacement may sound a little scary, new furnaces offer a variety of benefits that older systems simply can’t compete with. Plus, you’ll be able to relax 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 make sure that your furnace keeps that trend up. While we can’t guarantee you will never have any repairs that need to be made, newer systems typically have a lower need for repairs.
  • Quieter operation: have you ever heard the rumblings and clanking coming from your tired furnace and wondered what the heck is happening? A new furnace offers the newest in quiet operation technology and may even be so silent that you don’t even hear it turn on.
  • Improved furnace efficiency: advances in technology have allowed the HVAC industry many 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 extremely more reliable too.
