When Is It Time For A New Furnace

A furnace can last up to 30 years, but after it reaches about 15 years it may begin to have some problems. If your furnace requires more than 2 repairs or replacement parts within one year then it may be time for a furnace replacement. There are some signs to look out for that may mean it’s time for a new furnace such as lots of odd noises coming from the furnace such as rattling or popping, the temperature fluctuating throughout your home, your energy bill is high, or your furnace flames are yellow instead of blue. It is very important to contact an HVAC technician if any of these issues occur, as it can be dangerous if your furnace is running incorrectly. 

What Is The Furnace Installation Process?

The process of installing a furnace can be very detailed and has numerous steps, which is why it is crucial that it is installed by a trained and certified technician, any faults in the process can be dangerous for all those around. Once you have decided on your furnace you need to determine where is the best location for ducts and drains and connect them to the duct system. Next, you will have to connect the vent pipes, gas pipes, electrical supply, and condensate drain. After the installation is complete the technician will need another hour to look over their work. They have to make sure the temperature output is correct, and make sure there are no gas leaks, and that the condensate drain is draining correctly.

Woke up at 1:30am to no heat. Called Steve and an hour later he came out and diagnosed my failed blower motor. He did great work, very knowledgeable, professional, and a super nice guy.
