Wait, Does My Furnace Need Repairs, Replacement, or Maintenance?

question-mark-blueIt can definitely be pretty confusing—just how exactly do you know what your furnace needs at the start of the heating season? Of course, you want to make sure that your furnace is fully equipped and prepared to keep you and your family warm and toasty all winter long, so what do you do?

Well, for one, keep reading this blog! We’ve provided a sort-of quick-guide to the types of services your furnace may need and when! All you’ve got to do is click “read more” to learn more! (oh, and of course, remember to contact our team for your furnace services in Colorado Springs!)


It’s inevitable: your furnace is going to require repairs every now and again. Everyday wear and tear can put a lot of stress on your system, which can cause damage. When your system is in need of repair, it becomes significantly less efficient, causing your heating bills to skyrocket. Plus, the longer your furnace continues to run with an existing problem, the more likely it is for the problem to worsen. Here are some signs that your furnace needs repair:

  • Increased heating costs
  • Funny noises
  • Lack of heat
  • Strange odors


Over time, your furnace will become old and outdated, placing you in the market for a new one. There are many benefits to replacing your old system with a new, high-efficiency model. An inefficient system can end up costing you a lot of money, both on repair services and utility bills. A professional can determine if your system needs to be replaced and correctly size and install your new system to ensure efficiency and effectiveness. Here are some signs that your furnace needs to be replaced:

  • The furnace is 10-15 years or older.
  • Increased repair needs
  • High heating bills
  • Consistent trouble getting warm


Let’s get one thing straight: all furnaces, young and old, need regular maintenance. Scheduling annual maintenance services is the only way to preserve your system’s efficiency while increasing its lifespan. During these visits, your HVAC technician is able to detect and repair minor issues before they become major.  Maintenance reduces the impact of stress from everyday use and limits the potential for dangerous problems to occur.
