Your furnace may have been keeping you warm in Morrisville, NC, for 10 or more years now. But sooner or later, the time will come to replace it. Fortunately, there are signs to look for that can spur you to consult a service technician about this big step. Here are the most common warning signs that your heating system needs replacing.

Poor Performance in Spite of Heating Repairs

It’s not unusual for your heating system to have problems like short-cycling or low air pressure. These can result from things like a clogged filter or a malfunctioning fan or valve. However, you shouldn’t be seeing these issues after a repair job.

Homeowners who request annual maintenance for their heater may only need one or two repairs throughout the year, and these repairs shouldn’t be extensive. So, consider the frequency of repairs, too. Also, take note if your furnace breaks down completely and requires emergency services.

Bad Motor or Heat Exchanger

Some repairs cost so much that it makes more sense, in the long run, to go with a replacement. For example, you may spend $2,000 to $3,000 on a heat exchanger for your gas furnace, which is not much less than the cost of a brand-new heating system.

Having an Oversized or Undersized Furnace

If the company that handled your installation put in a furnace that’s too big for your home, you’ll need it replaced. Otherwise, you’ll experience continual short-cycling and uneven results. An undersized furnace will cycle constantly and not heat your home efficiently, leading to the same predicament.
