replacing old furnace with new one

Heat Pump and Furnace Replacement in Mechanicsville

We all worry about the feeling when winter comes in the Tri-County and we go to start up the furnace or heat pump for the first time. Will it start up without a hiccup and run excellently the entire season, or will it go out out of nowhere on the coldest day of the year? While no one can predict the moment when your furnace will go out, there are a few telltale signals that could be showing themselves prior to your system completely giving up.

No one likes to handle a broken down furnace or heat pump, but how do you know if it’s time to contemplate a replacement? There are many factors that play in to this situation, but at M & S Heating & Air LLC, we’ve got a few ideas 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 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 changed 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 may be time to say goodbye.
 
 
 

While furnace or heat pump replacement may sound a little scary, new systems offer a variety of benefits that older ones simply can’t compete with. Plus, you’ll be able to relax knowing that you likely won’t have to worry about replacing that system for years to come. A new furnace could mean:

 

 
  • Reduced furnace repairs: new systems tend to work pretty well right out of the box, and keeping up with annual furnace service will only help ensure that your furnace keeps that trend up. While we can’t promise 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 tired furnace and wondered what the heck is happening? A new furnace offers the best 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 allowed the HVAC industry many benefits. One of the greatest is the increase in efficiency we see across the board. New furnaces, disregarding the price point, often offer increased efficiency levels than systems from 20-25 years ago. Not to mention they’re quite a bit more reliable too.
