Signs You Need a New Furnace Installed Before Winter

While it seems that the Great Lenexa BBQ Battle and Freedom Run were just a few days ago, summer has quickly ended in the Kansas City area—and winter is just around the corner. During Lenexa winters, the temperature can get down to 20 degrees—a cold and snowy January day would be an unfortunate time for your furnace to die.

But waiting through winter for your old furnace to quit on you is a risky game—what if your furnace dies and a heating company is unable to get to your home for a few days? It’s a good idea to check for signs you need a new furnace installed before winter fully settles in so that you can ensure your family’s home will stay warm and comfortable until those first blooms of spring.

Does Your Furnace Need to Be Replaced?

While furnaces can last 15 to 20 years, improper installation or years without professional furnace inspections can cut your heating unit’s lifespan short.

Here are signs that it’s time for a new furnace for your Lenexa home:

  • Your furnace is over 15 to 20 years old
  • Heating bills consistently increase
  • Frequent or expensive furnace repairs
  • Uneven heating throughout your home
  • Yellow burner flame (instead of blue)
  • Strange noises coming from your furnace
  • Increased dust or stuffy air throughout your home

As your furnace ages, it begins to lose effectiveness and often requires more service calls and costly repair bills. Newer furnaces are much more efficient that older models—many offering up to 90 percent efficiency or more!

Improve Your Home’s Comfort with a New Furnace

Installing a new furnace can greatly improve the comfort of your family’s home as it trudges through the cold winters that Kansas is familiar with. In addition to better heating throughout the house, a new furnace offers:

  • Extended, renewed warranty with your new furnace
  • Lowered energy bills with a more efficient heating unit
  • Comfort knowing your furnace will last through Lenexa’s cold winters
  • Even heating and consistent temperatures throughout your home
  • And more!

Choosing a Professional HVAC Company for Furnace Installation in Lenexa

Like your air conditioner, the most important day in the life of your furnace is the first day it’s installed. Factors like sizing, sealing, and more can mean the difference between a furnace that runs at maximum efficiency for years and one that chugs along for a while, wasting money before it burns out prematurely.
