Signs Your Portland HVAC System Needs to Be Replaced


We recently discussed some of the signs to look for that might indicate that your furnace needs some kind of repair. In this post we want to take it a step further and discuss the signs that your furnace is beyond repair and in need of replacement. No one wants to spend a lot of money on a new furnace, but in the long run having a new HVAC unit in Portland OR can save you money on energy bills.

So what are some of the signs that your old furnace needs to be put to rest? If your heat pump or air conditioner is older than 10 years then replacing it with a unit that has the energy star label is a good idea. The same goes for your boiler or furnace that is more than 15 years old.

If your unit needs a lot of repairs and you continue to see your energy bill going up then your furnace needs to be replaced. If you find that some rooms are too cold or too hot, then your furnace might be beyond repair. If your home feels too moist in the summer or too dry in the winter then you should probably consider replacing your furnace.

If the burner flame on your furnace is yellow instead of blue that could mean carbon monoxide is present. That’s a strong indication that it’s time to replace your furnace.
