Signs It May Be Time for Furnace Replacement

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014

It is inevitable that your furnace will begin to develop problems as it gets older. The natural state of the universe is from order to chaos, after all. Still, with proper maintenance and timely repairs, your furnace can last a remarkably long time. Still, there are some things that really can’t be fixed. When you start to notice some of these signs, it’s probably time to replace your furnace.

Increase in Breakdowns

Pretty much the only type of damage you can’t stop from happening in any system is wear and tear. Over time, the strain of regular use will start to catch up to your furnace. This will start slow at first, a random part breaking here and there every couple of years. Eventually, though, you will start to see the frequency of these problems skyrocket. Every year, then every few months you will have to call your HVAC technician to mend or replace parts as they start to give out from age. At this point, the cost of repairs is probably worth more than the furnace. It’s reached the end of its life, and it’s time to replace it.

Sudden Health Changes

Part of the byproducts that every combustion furnace produces are a series of toxic gases, with carbon monoxide being the foremost among them. It is odorless, tasteless, and invisible. Practically the only way to detect it is by using a carbon monoxide detector. If a crack develops in the heat exchanger, or the exhaust flue becomes blocked, these gases can become trapped in your home. Symptoms of exposure to this gas include sudden headaches, nausea, dizziness, unconsciousness, and death. If you turn on your heater and experience any of these symptoms, get out of the house and call emergency services immediately. An HVAC technician will need to examine your furnace to confirm the problem, but in most cases the solution is to replace the entire furnace.

If you think your furnace might be reaching the end of its lifespan, call G&S Heating, Cooling & Electrical, Inc. Our heating experts cover the entire Monroe area.

Edmonds Furnace Replacement – Testimonial from Diana and Ed

Friday, December 9th, 2011

When should you replace instead of repair your heating system? While some may think it is best to keep on repairing your furnace until it breaks permanently, it can actually cost you more money in the long run. Older systems need more frequent repairs, which can certainly add up over time. Your old furnace also might be costing you a lot more money to run, since newer furnaces are all more energy efficient and need less fuel for the same heating.

If you are thinking about replacing your heating system, give G & S Heating, Cooling & Electric a call! We will work hard to provide you with the best solution possible for your home. Here is what Diana and Ed wrote to us about their furnace replacement:

I want to thank you for being so fast when I had a furnace failure in the middle of a cold night. The technician was here it seemed within 10 minutes. He was able to temporarily get heat going in our house after troubleshooting. We decided we would rather replace the unit, as it was old, instead of fixing it. After the installation of our new heat pump and furnace, we were so amazed at how quiet heat pumps are – both inside and outside our home. Our home is always at the ideal comfort level, not to mention the dramatic savings on our power bill.

G & S is the only company I will use from here on out. I will do my dandiest to recommend you to anyone I know looking to get a new heating or cooling system. Your technicians were extremely helpful and professional. My house was left neat, clean and in perfect condition.

Thanks for a great product!
