Importance of Servicing Gas Furnaces
When the temperatures drop, the last thing you want to worry about is a cold home (especially if you have to shovel snow and navigate icy roads!). Gas furnaces are among the most cost-effective, efficient ways to keep your house at the desired temperature.

How a Gas Furnace Works
When you set your home’s thermostat to your desired indoor temperature, it’s the job of the furnace to heat up when the temperature drops below your desired temp.
When this happens, the gas is delivered to the burner, the flame is ignited inside the combustion chamber, and soon, the furnace fan pulls air into the furnace filter, past the heat, and blows the freshly-warmed air into the home’s duct system, which is distributed throughout your house.
To keep your gas furnace working safely and properly, regular maintenance is essential. At SSI, we offer annual HVAC maintenance plans to make maintenance easy and stress-free.
5 Signs It Might Be Time for a Gas Furnace Replacement
By taking a few proactive steps, you can see the early warning signs that will save you time, money, and stress. Here are five signs to look for so that you know when to call in the pros for a new furnace installation.
#1: Check the age of your furnace
Most furnaces will last between twelve and fifteen years, and as it creeps up in age, you can start checking out the newer models. This way, you make an informed decision when the time comes instead of rushing to the first furnace and installation company that you see.
#2: Listen for noises
Noises are a key sign that you'll be in need of a furnace installation in the near future, so if you hear pops, squeals and squeaks, rattles, and bangs, then it's time to start the search. You should also be mindful if you hear the blower continually turning off and on again.
#3: Watch out for excessive repairs
As your furnace gets older, you'll start to notice repairs happening more frequently. The repairs will also start to rise in price as they become more serious, and you'll need to make the decision whether it's worth (another) $400 or more repair or time to invest in a new furnace installation.
#4: Pay attention to the energy bill
If you've noticed your electric or gas bill going up, there's a chance it's due to your furnace losing its efficiency. This happens over time, and the new furnace will pay for itself over time with the savings you'll see on your energy bill, as well as having fewer repairs performed.
#5: Notice dry air
If you or someone in your home suffers from allergies, and you've seen more dust than normal, your old furnace could be the culprit because it isn't able to help keep the air clean or moisturized.
