No matter how reliable your furnace is, at some point it will give you trouble. Typically, gas furnace issues can be fixed with simple maintenance. However, some problems can’t be solved with a quick tune-up. So, how can you tell if it’s time for a furnace replacement? Patterson Heating & Air Conditioning has the answers.

Constant heating system repairs in Charlotte

You can expect to have your heating system repaired every so often. However, if your repairs are becoming more frequent and expensive, it may be a sign that your furnace is on its last leg. Instead of paying more and more to keep a struggling furnace alive, invest in a new unit from Patterson Heating & Air Conditioning.

Rising energy bills

While you’re reviewing your repair costs, take a look at your energy bills, too. Do you notice a considerable increase in your energy usage over the past few years? If so, your furnace is no longer able to provide efficient heating, and should be replaced.

Furnace over 15 years old

Age plays a large part in furnace efficiency. Newer units typically have a higher AFUE, or efficiency rating, than older ones. If your furnace is over 15 years old, it’s time to start looking for a new one. A unit with an AFUE rating of 93% or higher can significantly reduce your energy bills.
