Should You Wait to Replace Your Heating System?
Sooner or later, every homeowner is faced with the decision of whether
or not to replace their heating system. The question is never "if",
but "when" since all mechanical devices eventually wear out.
Generally, a heating system will last 10 to 20 years, depending on the
type (for example, a furnace may last longer than a heat pump). So, how
do you know when the time is right?
Here are several factors to consider:
How expensive is the current repair? Although it might make sense to make small repairs to an aging system,
it is never a good idea to replace major components after a system is
ten years old.
Is the timing right? The best time to purchase a new heating system is during the spring or
fall, when manufacturers offer purchase incentives. Typically, avoiding
purchase decisions during extreme weather will save you money.
Can I get by with replacing one component instead of the entire system? A professional can help you with this decision, but age and compatibility
are factors to consider. To get the best operating efficiency out of any
system, the components must be matched.
How efficient should my new system be? Heating systems are rated numerically for efficiency. The higher the Annual
Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) rating, the more efficient the system
will be. Standard efficiency is around 80%, whereas high efficiency units
have 90% or more AFUE.
Be sure to consult with an expert before investing in a new heating system.

Signs Your Furnace May Need Repairs
Even if you live in a warmer climate, your furnace still works hard during
the winter months. As HVAC systems age and undergo seasonal stress, their
behavior can change - new noises present themselves, they run longer or
at different intervals, and so on. Not all changes are bad, but some can
mean serious trouble.
Pay attention to your system; watch and listen for these telltale signs
that maintenance is needed, and don't hesitate to have them inspected
if they are detected.
Furnace is making loud, abrupt noises. Every furnace emits noise during operation. Whizzing, humming, and whirring
are all normal noises, and they aren't any cause for concern. However,
if you start hearing louder, more abrupt noises, you should start to worry.
Any noise that is out of the ordinary should warrant an inspection. For
example, thumping, clanking, or another abrupt noise heard at unpredictable
intervals should be checked out by a professional as soon as possible.
light is burning yellow or orange instead of blue. If you own a gas-powered furnace, your pilot light should maintain a blue
color at all times. A blue flame indicates that a pure, steady stream
of gas is flowing through the system. When the flame weakens or turns
yellow, there could be something wrong with the gas line or the purity
of the gas itself. It's best to never take chances when it comes to
the pilot light. If you notice a change, schedule an appointment immediately.
Furnace is starting and stopping unpredictably or frequently. There is a whole host of causes for this problem. From thermostat failures
to degraded system wiring and electronics, it's practically impossible
to diagnose the cause without the help of a certified HVAC technician.
Not only will this problem cause the energy efficiency of your system
to decline; it will also gradually get worse over time, resulting in unnecessary
system wear and irreversible damage.
Thermostat inaccuracy. Do you feel like you're constantly adjusting the thermostat just to
stay warm? If so, you're experiencing a major sign that your system
needs some care and maintenance. This problem usually manifests itself
in older systems, so if your home has a system exceeding 10 years in age,
you should be on the lookout for a decline in system efficiency and thermostat accuracy.
Sudden energy bill spike. Any time you notice a sudden elevation in your monthly energy costs, your
home appliances should be the first place you investigate to find the
source of the problem. Your water heater, HVAC system, or washer/dryer
could all possibly be to blame, although HVAC units are quite often the culprit.
