How to tell if your gas furnace needs replaced?

Are you aware of the warning signs that indicate your gas furnace needs replaced? This is critical information that will keep your family safe as well as warm this winter. It will also keep more money in your pocketbook in the long run as a poor running gas furnace in your home is an inefficient furnace costing you money in energy bills.


Here are some of the warning signs

  • Not heating
  • Furnace over 10 years old
  • Some rooms are hotter, and others are colder
  • Popping, cracking, rattling noises 


The first thing you will want to do is determine just how old your Gas Furnace is. The life expectancy of a Gas Furnace today is anywhere from 10 to 15 years, if yours fall into this category you may want to consider replacing it.

Even if you think it is running quite well, it is more than likely sucking you dry in energy costs, something to take into consideration. 

As your gas furnace ages, you will need to increasingly replace worn or broken parts, just like you do on your high-mileage car. If you are suffering numerous furnace breakdowns, it could be a sign it needs replaced.

If you stare at the thermometer in your home and wonder why you feel so cold, it could be because your heater is lacking the ability to properly distribute the air. If your home suffers rooms that are too hot or too cold, you should consider replacing your furnace.

If you wake in the middle of the night to strange noises coming from your Gas Furnace, you guessed it, it could be time to have it replaced. That rattling, squeaking and popping noises are indications that something isn’t right with your furnace. It could be your furnace’s death knell.

If you notice any of these red flags, best give us a call before winter sets in.

Customers With a NICE Experience

Barb N.

“I purchased my HVAC unit a year ago along with a Cozy Club maintenance plan. It's been running great and the customer service team is always quick to respond to questions. Today Rolando M. came by for the maintenance check and, as usual, he was neat, professional and maintained the COVID rules. He was also very nice, living up to the company name. I'm very happy with my experience with Nice.”

N. England.

“I can't speak highly enough of this company. I requested an appointment, and it was scheduled for the next day. The technician was polite, honest, and a pure delight to work with. He didn't try to overcharge or tell me to replace something I didn't need to. He made service recommendations that were in line with industry standard prices so I could make an informed decision as he went about his service visit. Would recommend and will be using them again in the future. ”

“Superb customer service. Before a service appointment, you receive a text message notification with photo of the tech that will be at your residence followed by a phone call. During a service appointment you'll updated and educated. If there is a concern, management will contact you promptly and follow up until issue resolved. Awesome and attentive team!!”
