When To Replace Your Furnace: Expert Tips for Timely Upgrades

When To Replace Your Furnace: Expert Tips for Timely Upgrades

Is your old gas furnace making noises so scary that your kids won’t venture into the basement? Or maybe you’re worried about gas leaks and carbon monoxide poisoning. If your furnace is older than 15 to 30 years, it’s smart to have concerns. That’s when many furnaces start to fail, which can be dangerous for you and your family.

If you’re wondering when to replace your furnace, Moreau’s Thermal Services is here with the answer. For expert furnace installation in Slidell, LA, give us a call at (985) 781-6333.

Is It Time To Say Goodbye to Your Old Furnace?

Your gas furnace has faithfully served your household for years, but if it doesn’t heat your home anymore, it’s time for an upgrade. The good news is that Moreau’s Thermal Services can swap your old, money-draining unit for a far more energy-efficient furnace.

If you’re ready for an upgrade, read ahead to learn what you need to know.

Signs That Your Furnace Is on Its Last Legs

If you think you need to replace your furnace, you’re probably correct. Still, we know you may be reluctant to shell out for a new heating system if yours still runs (even if it runs badly).

To help you know when to replace your furnace, see whether any of the following rings a bell:

  • Some rooms of your home are hot, while others remain freezing-cold. This points to a problem with the ductwork or heating element.
  • Your furnace emits a bad odor. Well-running furnaces shouldn’t smell like much of anything.
  • The furnace makes odd thumping, clanking, clicking, or popping noises.
  • Your heating bills are far more expensive than they were last year, even though your energy usage has remained the same.
  • The furnace switches on frequently or runs constantly.
  • Your furnace seems to break down every few months. You could repair it yet again, but that may not be worth the cost.
  • Your furnace is 10 to 30 years old. Some furnaces start having problems around the 10-year mark, while others last a little longer. 

Perks of Replacing Your Furnace

Still not sure you ought to replace your furnace? If you’re on the fence, let us convince you:

  • Old furnaces can leak carbon monoxide, which is odorless but can make your family very sick or be fatal.
  • An outdated furnace can contribute to poor air quality in your home. If anyone in your household has asthma or COPD, this alone is a good enough reason to make an upgrade.
  • Ancient furnaces can run virtually nonstop, costing you hundreds of dollars per month in energy bills. A newer, more efficient unit can slash those bills big time.
  • Replacement costs more than furnace repair up front, but the savings add up quickly. Wouldn’t it be nice to go the whole winter without having to budget for another costly repair bill? If your furnace breaks down a few times a year, replacing yours could save you thousands in the long run.

The Furnace Replacement Process

If you’re ready to replace your furnace, it’s best to hire an experienced HVAC contractor from Moreau’s Thermal Services to handle the job for you. We’ll help you pick the best furnace size for the square footage of your home.

On installation day, we will remove your old furnace and swap it with the new one, ensure we’ve connected all wires and pipes correctly, and perform a few tests to verify that the furnace works as it should.

We were treated very professional

These guys started the morning on time. When they got to the site, they made sure that all of the material was there. They did’t spend alot of time running back and forth.They are very hard worker and they make sure that they PICK up behind themselves! I’m getting alittle ahead of myself, when Billy came he made sure that everything was explained to us. He took time to make sure that the unit we wanted was the right one for our home. We were treated very professional. I would DEFINITELY use and RECOMMEND this company to everyone.

They're very helpful and knowledgeable.

I called them at 9 o’clock and they were actually willing to come out at 9 o’clock on a Saturday night but I told them just to come on the next morning. They came here Sunday. They’re always there when I needed them. They’re fairly priced. It’s a family business. He didn’t charge me any extra for that. They’re always there available for you. They’re very helpful and knowledgeable. They offer their service 24/7.

Best investment I have ever made

Shane & Billy did the install. They were very professional, and courteous. After installation they spent time with me ensuring that I understood how to operate my new system. Billy checked back with me several times after the installation to see if everything was working properly, and if I had any questions. If I have a question when I call them someone calls me back the same day. I can’t say enough about their service and their product. I love my new system. Best investment I have ever made. I would recommend this company to anyone I know.

delightful experience with this outstanding company

I have never written a review before, but I had to share my delightful experience with this outstanding company. First of all, the way I found out about Moreau’s is that my step daughter called me., raving about them. Shortly thereafter, my A/C went out on a weekend. I had a service contract with another company, so I felt obliged to call them first, and so I did. I waited and waited and waited……Read more

had a fantasy experience with them.

Robert and Ross came by today to do the heating service on our two units. They performed a very thorough service and worked fast and clean. Very friendly and even offered to put our Christmas bins back in the attic while they were up there. I highly recommend Moreau and we’ve always had a fantasy experience with them.
