One of the most popular heating services we offer is new installation and furnace replacement. However, it can be difficult to know when exactly your HVAC unit needs to be replaced.
As a result, some people wait until it’s too late to call an HVAC company to have a new furnace installed. As experts in furnace installation in Noblesville, IN, we’re here to tell you what to look for if you’re considering replacing your furnace soon.
If your Noblesville furnace is noisy or running louder than usual, these are signs that it’s time to replace it with a new furnace. Typically, a furnace only makes a lot of noise if it has cracks, leaks, or other structural issues that compromise its functionality.
Rattling, popping, or banging noises are telltale signs that a furnace may be at the end of its life.
Higher-than-usual energy bills are another sign that your existing unit is malfunctioning. Energy bills shouldn’t have sudden dramatic increases if there has been regular maintenance. However, if there’s a jump in what you’re paying monthly, it could indicate that the internal parts of the heater are wearing out.
Extra money paid toward gas and electricity with a broken heater can go toward a new, energy-efficient furnace!
The typical life expectancy for a furnace is around 18 years, but any existing unit that’s over 15 years old is likely to have issues. As time goes on, internal and external parts, such as the blower fan, wear down, and HVAC systems become less efficient. If your unit is over 15 years old, we recommend replacing it with an ENERGY STAR-rated new HVAC unit, which is more efficient than older furnaces.
If you have central heating but you’re feeling cold indoors, or if temperatures are significantly different between rooms, it may be time to replace your HVAC system. This could be due to a malfunctioning thermostat or an air leak which could be fixed through HVAC service, but if those causes have been ruled out, it’s at least time to schedule a consultation with our HVAC contractors.
If you’ve noticed dust, dirt, and soot building up around the house while your furnace is running, it can ruin indoor air quality and be a sign that the heater needs to be replaced. With a furnace, dust build-up is inevitable because the air it cycles can disturb dirty surfaces. However, more dust than usual can be an indicator that the filtration technology isn’t as good as it used to be. For dust, dirt, and soot build-up that is lowering your overall indoor air quality, call the HVAC contractors at Star Heating & Cooling today for furnace repair service.
There are several things to consider when deciding which furnace is right for your home in Noblesville and the surrounding areas:
Some furnaces will work better in some climates and surrounding areas. For example, homes in mild climates that experience warm temperatures will do best with an HVAC system that has an annual fuel utilization efficiency of 80 or more. Homes in colder climates need more power, so the annual fuel utilization efficiency should be 90 or higher.
There are two major types of furnaces: gas and electric. Oil furnaces also exist but are rarely used.
Gas furnaces: A gas furnace is generally more expensive to install than an electric furnace but has cheaper fuel costs. Gas line installation is an added cost in the natural gas furnace installation process.
Electric furnaces: An electric furnace has a cheaper installation cost because it doesn’t require a gas line, but it is less energy efficient. It’s up to you and your HVAC company to determine which new system suits your home better.
The most efficient furnaces are electric. However, electricity is more expensive than gas, making it more expensive in the long run than a gas furnace. Therefore, energy efficiency depends on how much you’d like to spend on a furnace long-term.
Furnaces that are too small will fail to heat the entire home. Furnaces that are too large will produce too much heat for the home, creating a higher power bill and more wear and tear to the new system, increasing the need for HVAC service.
Our certified professionals consider the size of the home as well as the following factors when determining the appropriate size system for your new installation:
