A properly installed and well-maintained furnace should last for about 10 – 15 years. However, once it has passed that decade milestone, you may start noticing that it’s not performing as reliably as it once did and requires frequent repairs. The experienced team at Arctic Air Conditioning can help you upgrade your home’s aging or broken heating system with a highly efficient Lennox furnace.

Signs You Need to Replace Your Furnace
If you find yourself calling for furnace repairs time and time again, it could be time for a replacement. While replacing your furnace can be a big investment, it’s one that can pay for itself in improved efficiency and reduced breakdowns over the years. If you think it’s time to replace your furnace in East Brunswick, ask yourself the following questions:
Is your furnace more than 10 years old?
If you take care of your furnace and have it properly inspected each year, it’s very likely to last you 10—15 years. That said, if you start to require frequent furnace repairs after about a decade, you may save more in the long run by replacing your aging furnace. A furnace replacement will leave your home with a new, properly working furnace that not only won’t cause any problems but also is light years ahead of your old one in terms of energy efficiency!
Are your heating bills going up?
If you’ve had your furnace for a while and you’re starting to notice your heating bills going up, call Arctic Air Conditioning for a furnace inspection. We can help you determine whether something just needs to be repaired or if you need to replace your furnace, as well as how much money you could save with a new furnace. If the costs and savings add up, we can replace your furnace right away!
Do you need frequent furnace repair?
As furnaces get older they start to need more frequent repairs—this is especially true as they approach the last two or three years of their lives. If you find that you’re paying almost as much in repairs as you paid for the furnace in the first place, this is a good sign that you need a furnace replacement.
Is your home evenly heated?
One of the surest signs that a furnace is about to quit on you is uneven heating between the different rooms in your home. If you have certain rooms in your home that are really hot while others are much colder, you could have one of two problems: Either your ductwork is leaky and needs to be repaired and sealed or your furnace can no longer move heat effectively through your home. Whatever the problem is, call Arctic Air Conditioning! We can come out to your home in East Brunswick and take a look at your heating system and recommend the most effective next steps.
What color is your burner flame?
The burner flame on your furnace should be blue—this indicates that your furnace is completely burning all of the fuel it’s being fed. A yellow or orange flame indicates an incomplete burn, which means more than just inefficient heating—it also means that the furnace is producing potentially dangerous levels of carbon monoxide. Other signs of carbon monoxide production include:
Streaks of soot around the furnace
No upward draft in your chimney
Rust on pipes and jacks
Excessive moisture on windows, walls, and other cold surfaces
Water leaking from the base of your chimney, vent, or flue pipe
Carbon monoxide is extremely hazardous, potentially fatal, and if your furnace is producing it, you need to have it repaired or go for full furnace replacement immediately.
Is your furnace making strange noises?
Strange noises such as banging, popping, rattling, or squealing are a general indication that your furnace has reached the end of its life. In addition, if you can hear your blower fan constantly running, this is a sign that you might need a furnace replacement.
If you’ve been experiencing any of the above symptoms and think you might need a new furnace, call Arctic Air Conditioning today to schedule your appointment in East Brunswick!
