When To Repair Your Furnace & When To Replace It

Is it Time for Furnace Repair?

When your Nashville furnace stops working, it’s easy to panic. Instead of worrying, though, just call us at The Surfin’ Plumbers, Heating & Cooling. We’ll get to you quickly, assess your furnace, then get it repaired for you fast. If furnace replacement is a better option for you, we’ll help you get the perfect new furnace for your home.

Don’t ever let furnace repair in Nashville go on fixed. These problems can get worse fast and they can have serious consequences, too. In fact, you should do everything you can to catch the issues before they become so serious that your furnace isn’t working at all. Here’s what you should look for. 

Signs You Need a Furnace Repair

Your furnace may be struggling but you won’t know unless you know the signs that indicate furnace problems. Call us for furnace repair in Nashville if you notice any of the following issues.

  • Your furnace won’t turn off. This can burn out your motor quickly and it makes your house too warm, too. 
  • Your furnace turns on and off, but it does it so fast that it never gets a chance to heat your home. Something has gone wrong and you’re wasting energy running a furnace like this. We’ll get to the bottom of it and fix it fast.
  • Your furnace blows cold or lukewarm air. Even if the air it blows is technically warmer than the air in your home, it’s not working efficiently. This causes extra wear and tear on the furnace and raises your electricity bills, too.
  • Your furnace makes unusual sounds when you run it. Something could have broken off inside your furnace or gotten inside it. Either way, you’ll want to fix the problem before whatever it is that’s rattling around in there does even more damage. 
  • Your energy bills are going up and you don’t know why. When there’s not another explanation for higher energy costs, you may need a furnace repair in Nashville. 
  • You are too cold at home, even when your heater seems to be working well. If it has kept you warm before, chances are that it needs a repair. If it’s a new heater or you are new to the home, you may need to get a larger heater for effective winter warmth. 

Call us right away, as soon as you notice a problem, and we’ll send out an expert ASAP. Before long, we’ll know exactly what has gone wrong with your heater and we’ll be started on a repair. Our goal is always to get things working again before you need a new furnace. In addition to furnace repair and replacement in Nashville, we offer maintenance services, too.

When Do I Need a New Furnace?

At The Surfin’ Plumbers, we help people replace their Nashvillle furnaces every day. One of the most challenging parts of that process is making the decision that it’s time to get rid of the old furnace and install a new one.

Our expert Nashville heating technicians are always happy to evaluate your furnace, then give you our expert opinion as to whether it’s time to replace it. Sometimes, it’s pretty clear that you need a new furnace. Other times, you will need to consider your options and make the call that is best for you and your budget. 

Signs You May Need a New Furnace

If you’re experiencing any of the following problems, it may be time to replace your furnace:

  • You need expensive furnace repairs. If the repair will cost more than half of what replacing your furnace would cost, it’s a good idea to get a new one. 
  • You need frequent furnace repairs. Even if each repair is small, the cost adds up over time. Plus, repeated repairs can mean that your furnace is wearing out and that you will face a big repair sometime soon.
  • Your furnace isn’t warming your house effectively, and repairs are not solving it. The furnace may be working well but, if  it’s not keeping you warm, it’s time to get a new one. Your furnace may be too small for your house, or it may be too old to produce the warm air you need. 

If you’re not sure how to evaluate your furnace, call us! We’ll come take a look and let you know what we find. Then we’ll evaluate your current unit, talk to you about what you need and want in a furnace, then help you choose the one that is best for you.

As soon as you pick out your new unit and it’s available, we’ll come install it for you. We test our work every time so you can be absolutely sure your new furnace will work well for you for years to come.
