If your energy bill seems to be going up, it may be time to have your furnace examined. When furnaces are working at their peak efficiency, your utility bill should remain very similar throughout the months your furnace is in use. Furnaces are designed to last 10-15 years, though we have seen some last longer. Homeowners experiencing furnace issues often struggle with multiple furnace problems including;
- Increasing energy bills
- The furnace is 10+ years old
- Multiple service calls
- There is water leaking on the floor around the furnace
- Home never seems to be warm enough
- Hot and cold zones in the home
- Cold air circulates, and the furnace seems to cycle frequently
- The furnace is making noise
- There is a strange smell in the home
- There seems to be excess dust
- Burner flames are yellow, not blue
At R&D Heating and Air we will make sure to inspect your furnace and make sure that a replacement is needed. We don’t like the strategy of other businesses when they try forcing a replacement on their clients when the problems could be fixed with a few simple repairs. Instead, we will be sure to review all of your options before suggesting a replacement.

New Furnace Benefits
We have found there are endless benefits to a new furnace in your home. The energy is more efficient and your heating bills are usually much lower with a new one. A brand new furnace is also very safe because there is little to no risk of the system malfunctioning or needing repairs for several years to come. The air quality is also much better because no harmful chemicals or particles are being released into the air with a new system, where a malfunctioning system might. You can also always count on having consistent heating throughout your home regardless of the weather outside.
We recommend annual HVAC system tune-ups to maintain your furnace and to prevent the need for frequent replacements.
