Winter has its advantages and disadvantages, especially in a state such as Colorado, which can experience both brutal summers and harsh winters. On one hand, winter paints a lovely picture of snow-covered open country and other scenery. On the other, frigid temperatures are really no fun for anyone. This is particularly true if your home’s furnace has ever experienced problems so severe that the entire unit required replacing. If you can’t be comfortable in your own home in the winter, where can you be comfortable?

One of the scary things about furnace malfunctions, especially in furnaces more than 15 or 20 years old, is that they can occur at any time, even in the dead of winter. If you’ve never experienced this, you may be surprised at just how quickly your home can cool down when it doesn’t have the constant heating source of the furnace available to it.

Signs Your Furnace Might Need Replacing

Here at Valiant Air, we like to help our customers become familiar with the workings of their furnaces so they know whether they need us to come in immediately to help. Here are some signs to look for to tell if your furnace might need to be replaced in Englewood, CO.

  • The furnace is between 15 and 20 years old. These are the average ages of furnaces that need replacing, so yours may last longer or shorter. Some furnaces can last decades. Just don’t be too surprised if your gas furnace starts causing problems at, say, 18, 19, or 23 years old.
  • Your furnace has gotten repaired frequently in a relatively short time. Any piece of machinery that needs almost constant repairs is a candidate for replacement. At some point, just like with cars, it becomes cheaper to replace a furnace than to keep bringing in HVAC professionals to repair it. At Valiant Air, we know what to look for in furnaces to let you know whether yours should be repaired or replaced.
  • Your home is uncomfortable and your heating bills have risen. Each of these reasons is a surefire way to tell something isn’t right with your furnace. Newly manufactured furnaces get more energy-efficient all the time, so if you find that your furnace isn’t heating your house the way it should be, and that your heating bills have risen noticeably over the past few months, it may be time to upgrade. Doing so will guarantee your home is heated efficiently.
