Unless you’ve dealt with replacing a furnace, it can be hard to determine when it’s the right time for a new one. Rather than just blindly listen to the first furnace installation service near you, take a look below to learn about a few signs that let you know when your furnace needs to go.   

Before You Install A New Furnace, Read This

Having a new appliance like a furnace installed is no small job. That’s why it’s important to know what to look for before you call a local “expert” who may try to sell you something you don’t need. Here are 3 things to consider.

Energy Bills Are Getting Higher Each Month

Energy isn’t cheap in Toronto and the GTA, so you should notice a significant increase if your furnace isn’t performing well. Note that you’ll always see a bit of an increase when you switch from summer to winter months, but as a homeowner, you should be able to tell if there is a noticeable difference to what the costs were in previous years.

Some Rooms Never Seem To Warm Up

While the closest rooms to your furnace tend to heat up the quickest, if certain rooms never seem to hit ideal temperatures, you may have an issue with efficiency and performance. Unfortunately that could mean needing a new furnace sooner than later.

Air Quality Isn’t Good

This last one is a bit hard to notice, but if the air in your home seems to be more dusty, or humid, you could have a furnace issue. As they age, furnaces lose their ability to perform at the optimum level. Since they are connected to your home’s ventilation, seeing air quality drop off might be a good sign you need a new furnace.

There comes a time in every homeowner’s life when the inevitable happens. Your trusty old furnace just isn’t as trusty as it once was. Hopefully it happens in the fall before the first cold snap of the winter, but your furnace has now broken down. A technician has told you that it’s going to be cheaper in the short and long-term to buy a new furnace than it is to fix your existing one. At this point many people might get stressed out, but since replacing your furnace is something you can’t really control at a certain point, think of this as an opportunity.

New Furnace Options

Why should you think of this as an opportunity? First of all, we do understand that purchasing a new furnace is fairly expensive, but put that aside for a moment and consider the other benefits.

Since your last furnace was installed furnace technology has drastically improved. A new furnace will most certainly be quieter, more efficient, smaller, and cost you less month to month and in the long-term.

Now that you’re buying a new furnace you can ask a professional HVAC technician what the best model is for your home. An HVAC technician has the experience and knowledge to make the best recommendation for your needs. This means you can choose a high-efficiency model that will save you money on your energy bill each month. These models also reduce your carbon footprint.

Newer furnaces are also much smarter and easier to fix than older models as they use advanced technology to heat your home.

The Cost of A New Furnace

Depending on the make and model of your new furnace they can cost anywhere between $2000 and $5000 for a typical residential model. At Novel Care we understand that not everyone has $5000 just lying around ready to spend on a furnace. This is why we work with manufacturers to offer our customers great HVAC promotions. We also offer great furnace financing options and once you have your new furnace our HVAC protection plans are the perfect way to keep your investment working for you.

Overall, we make it easier to buy a new furnace, so you don’t have to pay for it all up front.
