Furnace replacement is an option you can consider when furnace repairs are no longer effective. A healthy home is one that has an energy efficient safe heating system in place. If the current furnace you have is prone to repairs and unsafe to use then it is high time you replace the existing one. Calgary Furnace repair and replacement does a thorough job of ascertaining whether your furnace can function with repairs or if you require a replacement.

How do you decide whether to get a new furnace installation?

First thing to consider is the life of the furnace. If your furnace is lesser than 10 years old and has been properly maintained then there is no need for a replacement. You need to replace your furnace only under the following circumstances:

  1. Energy bills shooting up:

Your bills will give you this piece of information. Have you seen your energy bills rise in the last couple of months apart from the fact that energy cost is rising? If you see a significant difference then it may be due to the fact that your furnace is not functioning efficiently.

  1. Check for cracks in the heat exchanger:

Cracks may develop in the heat exchanger of furnaces as they grow older and carbon monoxide may leak due to this. If you get frequent headaches, feel nausea or burning sensation in the nose or eyes it may be due to this leakage. This is fatal for you and your family members. Open all the windows, call a technician and replace the furnace immediately, you have no choice here.

  1. Strange noises:

If your furnace is making strange noises like banging or squealing then it is time to replace.

  1. Repairs in the past:

If in the past 2 years you have had more than 2 repairs then it is time to replace.


Proper and regular maintenance is required to keep your furnace functioning efficiently and effectively. Purchasing a new furnace may be expensive but will save your energy bills thereby actually helping you cut cost in the long run. Get a new furnace installed in Calgary and save money bigtime!!
